Win G3 gear this winter!

Want to win G3 gear this winter, Here are different ways to do so!

"If you've been daydreaming of some free G3 gear to add to your quiver, this just might be the month to do it. We have all sorts of different promotions on the go right now; yet another way to say thanks and hook some of you lucky shredders up with more free gear. Here's what's currently up for grabs...Next up don't forget about Off-Piste Magazine's subscription drive. Each month, they're hooking up existing and new subscribers with G3 avalanche tools like the Bonesaw, Avitech Shovel, and new quick-deploy probes. And in March we're giving away a pair of Mountain Series skis, so stay tuned for that one.

Record and share your first turns of the season - get hooked up from G3 and Drift Innovation. Drift's First Turns Contest on Facebook is easy to enter, and will send one lucky skier home with a DRIFT HD 1080p camera and a pair of G3's new Highball skis.

Not done yet! BackcountrySkiingCanada.com just launched their Expose Yourself Photo & Video Contest. The final prize for the contest is, you guessed it, skis, bindings, and skins from G3 Genuine Guide Gear. Get in there.

And last but not least, we're entering the final round of this year's SkiGraphiks contest, with a pair of G3 Infidels up for grabs with your design on them. Design your custom topsheet graphic, upload, share it around and cross your fingers. Enter Skigraphiks before December 31.

Who knows, that might not even be the complete list of contests on the go right now. But we'll leave it with you to explore the site and G3's Facebook page for other current or upcoming opportunities. Good luck and happy shredding."

First Race of the Season Coming Up!

This coming saturday will be the season opener for yet an other really exciting season of Ski Mountaineering Racing. This event will take place in Calgary at COP from 6pm till 9 pm. This is the second year of the event and organizers are expecting a great turnout!
The format is pretty simple, solo, teams of 2 or teams of 4 will have to go around COP as many time as possible during a 180 minutes period.
This year, members of the National Team were asked to team with someone new to skimo to participate in the event in order to hopefully grow the sport in Canada.
Look out for the "Frech Ladies in Tights" as we will be going around in circle on saturday night in Calgary!
