Triumphant Tailgates

outside bozeman skiing tailgate contest


We all love a good après-ski after a long day on the hill. Beers, burgers, and bonfires come to mind. Or, for some, the pre-ski party is where it’s at—there’s nothing quite like a fresh stack of parking-lot pancakes, a hot cuppa joe, or a loaded-up Bloody Mary before clicking in. The possibilities are endless, and we want to see what you’ve got. The winner will take home our expertly-crafted tailgate-enhancement package.

What does this entail, you ask? All this: 4 lift tickets to Showdown, a NomadiQ portable grill, a Front Runner utensil set, bourbon from Wildrye, beer from Bitterroot Brewing, cold-weather apparel, gift cards for food & drink, an antler bone for your favorite furry friend, a pile of O/B swag, and an item of outdoor apparel from the O/B Treasure Chamber—pick a fleece, a shell, or a pair of winter pants to keep you cozy at your next après soiree. Ski art and other random items are sprinkled in as well. This whopping $1,000 worth of tailgate goodies will make you the life of any parking-lot party. Head to your favorite ski area with your pals and submit a photo (with a clever caption, of course) showing off your best ski-area tailgate. Bonus points for humor and creativity.
