There’s a better way to keep your goggle tan this summer, and we’re sending one lucky skier or snowboarder to South America to do just that… We’re excited to announce the top five #GoggleSelfie Photo Contest entries and the winner of our grand prize ski trip in Valle Nevado, Chile!

The people have spoken, and @astrombly’s underwater #GoggleSelfie takes home the ski trip with more than 1,200 votes. He receives the following prize package:

  • 50% off LATAM Airlines Group flights to Santiago (valid from U.S. gateway cities for the lowest available fare at time of booking)
  • 7 nights of lodging in a double room at Hotel Puerta del Sol
  • Lift tickets for 2 people for entire length of stay + 2 Interconnect lift tickets to access El Colorado and La Parva
  • Breakfast and dinner daily
  • Access to all Valle Nevado facilities including the Spa and Fitness Center
  • POC Retina Big goggles to  keep that goggle tan fresh in Chile

This prize is valid for travel between Aug. 22 and Sept. 26, 2014. It does not include airport transfers, lunch or extras, and it’s subject to availability and blackout dates.

The rest of the top five #GoggleSelfie entries also receive POC Retina Big goggles to work on their goggle tans stateside. Here are the second- through fifth-place entries:

  • Second place: @morganbast
  • Third place: Dagmar Teleky
  • Fourth place: Joan Barbagiov
  • Fifth place: @TB9788
