Ski boots aren’t exactly sexy, but for the last 40 years, Lange Girls ranging from Pamela Anderson to World Cup racers have shown off their lasts, cuffs, foam injections, and most everything else. If Lange ever made rear entry boots, we might have to require ID to read this story. The Lange Girl is a ski industry icon, and she’s coming back hotter than ever this year; we just don’t know who she is yet.
That’s because Lange Girl 2008 has a new twist: Freeskier and Lange will pick Local Lange Girl models from winners of the inaugural “Lange Girl Search.” Think Lange Girl for the YouTube generation. Instead of using models or pro Lange athletes, we’re hosting an online contest to let ripping ski chicks from across the nation get a shot at joining the Lange Girl tradition through a Local Lange Girl program.
Here’s how it works:
1. Head over to our contest site, lange.freeskier.com
2. Use your Freeskier.com account info to log in and create your contest entry!
3. Sit back and let the community vote if you’re hot or not.
Freeskier and Lange will select up to four women to represent Lange at regional events, plus one national winner who will represent Lange on a part-time paid basis at bigger events, including the SIA tradeshow in Las Vegas. She’ll score a Lange/Dynastar setup and work with Freeskier on a Gear Girl portrait next year. Plus, all regional winners will make out with some Lange and Freeskier schwag.
The contest begins November 15, and we’ll accept entries through December 31. More details will come soon, as we get the contest page set up and running!
