Win a VIP Weekend & Skis, Boots & More

Want to win winter? We’re giving away an awesome package: Spend two nights at the Topnotch Resort and Spa in Stowe. Get a massage or spa treatment there. And there’s more: the winner will also receive latest skis from Renoun and a custom-fit pair of  Dodge carbon fiber ski boots. You’ll also win a season’s pass to the Trapp Family Lodge and Outdoor Center’s Nordic trail network.



Here’s what you’ll win:


A two-night stay and 50-minute deep tissue massage at Topnotch Resort, a majestic mountainside destination in Stowe, Vermont that blends the gracious charm of a ski lodge with the luxurious amenities of a world-class resort.  During your stay relax and unwind at the award-winning Topnotch Spa, play a match on the indoor tennis courts, lounge poolside, or dine fire side at either of the on-site restaurants; Flannel and The Roost.  Enjoy complimentary ski valet, boot warming and shuttle service to the lifts.(An $800 value, blackout dates apply, not redeemable on peak weekends and holidays.)


Designed in Vermont using proprietary carbon fiber technology, the  Citadel 106 has been a vision of Renoun’s since the inception of the company. It’s made wider, lighter and with more carbon fiber so it’s light, stiff and super stable. There’s more HDT and less chatter. Everything you need to build a super ski unlike any other. After three years of R&D – research & dreaming—Renoun made it a reality. The winner gets a pair, sized to his or her needs. For more on Renoun,  see our story. 



Made in Vermont and custom-fit to your feet, Dodge has been the leader in carbon fiber boots. You’ll get your own pair, molded to your feet. Some features we love:

  • Light Weight – 1600 grams (3.5 pounds) compared to 2300+ grams (5+ pounds) for other boots. Backcountry skiers use Dodge Boots with alpine touring plate bindings for a combination lighter than many dedicated AT systems.
  • Consistent Flex – The flex of Dodge Boots doesn’t change with temperature due to our industry-exclusive Carbon fiber/Composite construction. Other boots get too stiff when it’s cold and too soft when it’s warm.
  • Power/Comfort/Feel – Dodge-exclusive composite materials and design deliver a unique combination of power, comfort and feel not found in other boots. No need to buckle tightly for great performance
  • Two widths – 102mm wide last in addition to our regular 98 mm last
  • Women’s model – with higher volume cuff
  • Industry-exclusive Carbon fiber/Composite construction
    • Superior edge control
    • Provides superior damping even on super hard, aggressive snow
    • Provides consistent flex and fit
    • Easier to get into/out of even when it’s really cold




Explore more than 35 miles of Nordic trails all winter. Stop off for a Pilsner at the Bierhall, home to von Trapp brewing, ski to the Slayton Pasture cabin for hot soup and a warm fire. We’re giving away a season’s pass good for the winter 2018/19 season. Read our story on the history of  the Trapp Family Lodge.
