In Colorado, a Global Search Begins to Find Three People Who Have Never Seen Snow

DENVER, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Colorado's Legendary Winter Season


    Colorado, home to 26 unique ski resort areas and more than 300 inches of annual snowfall, announces Snow at

    With half of the earth's population having never seen snow, the Snow at First Sight campaign speaks to those

who can only imagine a Colorado winter, while reminding frequent visitors what makes the state one of the most

showcase Colorado's offerings and turn three willing participants into Colorado winter aficionados. From January

through March, 2010, the participants will delight in the best winter activities Colorado has to offer, working with

local experts to learn how to ski, snowboard, snowmobile and snowshoe, for example.

    The participants will also dine at some of the state's finest restaurants, mingle at the hottest apres-ski spots, get

pampered at spas and hot springs and enjoy other Colorado vacation pursuits. The public can follow the entire

Snow at First Sight experience via blog and social media channels.

    To participate, potential participants are asked to submit a video to explaining why

experience in Colorado. Contestants are encouraged to use their social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to

spread the word about their entry. Half of the winners will be selected based upon audience voting while the other

five semi-finalists will be chosen by an expert panel in Colorado.

    Ten finalists will be selected from all entries and flown out to Colorado for an audition. Three finalists will be

selected by a panel of industry experts to participate in the program.

    Snow enthusiasts and fans in cold-weather cities can participate by viewing videos and voting for their favorite
