So I wouldn’t typically run two contests within the span of a week, but I’ll make an exception for this one.
The back story: I met my buddy Stephen Wheeler exactly a year ago in Corner Brook, after returning from my first trip to Gros Morne. Since then, he and a couple of buddies have launched Magine Snowboards:
We are a Newfoundland based company located in Port Au Port East (the western portion of the province) who are about the freedom of expression, enjoying a fun lifestyle, and supporting the community. We started in December 2010, with this coming winter being our big kick off year. Our handcrafted boards will be going out to shops in Corner Brook (Georges Mountain Village), St. John’s (Ballistics), Halifax (Entity, and Pro Skates), Turor (Haf), and Sussex, N.B (Outdoor Elements).
I feel like since I left Corner Brook over five years, the winter sports community (especially snowboarding) in Newfoundland is something that’s grown dramatically. Or maybe it already exploded, but since the only winter sport I can do safely without breaking bones is cross-country skiing, all I can do is be that jealous chick watching from the sidelines.
Whatever the case, I’m always eager to help out a fellow entrepreneur and promote sports within the province.
So Magine Snowboards and I are teaming up to give away two pairs of tickets for the NLFreeride‘s showing of two epic feature snow films: Sweetgrass Productions’ “Solitaire” and Matchstick Productions’ “Attack of La Nina.” It’s going down THIS THURSDAY evening (November 4) at the LSPU Hall (7:30 pm), and yes, the bar is open. You’ll also get the opportunity to win some prizes!
“In the high desert of South America, winter takes hold, devouring bleached bones and abandoned shacks. Born in the spires of Argentina’s legendary Las Lenas, a lonely two-year journey begins through an abandoned world wandering the length of a continent from Peru’s Cordillera Blanca to Chilean Patagonia. Solitaire fuses western-inspired tales of backcountry gambles into landscapes never before visited on film.”
“Chronicles the deepest North American winter in recent history. ‘Attack of La Niña’ showcases the talents of today’s best skiers in a journey through the snowiest winter of their lives and demonstrates the limit of what is possible in modern freeskiing. Featuring super steep descents, unbelievably deep powder, and giant airs.”

…and let me know you’ve done so.
Two winners will be selected at random, and you can pick up the tickets at the LSPU Hall where they’re being held in my name. I’m unable to attend the showing myself as I’m home taking care of some family stuff, but I’d love to hear how it goes! Dive in.
