Win a winter in Colorado courtesy of Columbia’s Ski Bum Scholarship Program

Comments by Henrik Lampert/

Dillon, Colorado. Three months of rent. Loads of ski gear. Lift tickets. Food and a temporary car. Oh, and airfare… all covered. Columbia is now accepting applications for its Ski Bum Scholarship; should you be the lucky winner, you’ll receive the abovementioned prize pack. And what true ski bum wouldn’t put off three months of his/her life in order to pursue a solid shreducation?

Applications (in the form of a video essay, to be uploaded to YouTube) are currently being accepted through December 8, 2012. A winner will be announced in mid-December. Should you happen to attend one of the Warren Miller film premieres this fall, you can also visit the Columbia booth—present at each event—to enter.

In addition to the grand prize, ten lucky individuals will win $200, good towards Columbia gear. For official rules, and the full scoop, visit http://skibumscholarship.com/.
