To begin, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our “There’s a Better Way to Keep Your #goggletan” photo contest. The outpouring of creative and fun-loving submissions we received and the number of votes cast on Facebook were a testament to the love we all share for this sport and culture, even during the summer months! Update: This sweepstakes is now over, but stay tuned for more great giveaways on our Facebook page!

Without further ado, we’d like to congratulate Lauren A. of Colorado. Her winning submission (see below) received an unprecedented number of votes, sending her on the ultimate South American ski vacation. Lauren will enjoy seven nights at Valle Nevado’s Hotel Puerta del Sol; skiing for two at Valle Nevado, El Colorado and La Parva; breakfast and dinner daily; and a pair of POC Lobes goggles and a POC Fornix helmet to keep her eyes clear and noggin safe on her trip. We just hope she takes a few layers to stay warm down there.

In addition to the grand prize, we’re also giving away a pair of POC Lobes goggles to our four runners up. Congratulations to Chase S. from Maine, Jared A. from New Mexico, Jeff F. from Utah and Bo H. from Ohio for your great submissions below.
