You just never know where Idaho will show up.
Saturday afternoon, January 28th, we were at Bellevue Square in Bellevue, Washington handing out FREE ski packages all throughout Idaho. Working together with Microsoft and Escape Outdoors, guests of the Microsoft Store were given the opportunity to sample Kinect Sports: Season Two—which includes an awesome all-new ski game—and then enter to win prizes.
And what great prizes they were: free lift tickets to Brundage, Schweitzer, Tamarack and Sun Valley—who added a stay at the resort. Also included in each drawing where substantial gift certificates at Escape Outdoors and a copy of Kinect Sports: Season Two for the Xbox.
Winners were drawn every hour and each one took home a collection of items. Of course, none of them went to Bellevue Square that day thinking they’d win anything, so all of them were quite pleased. Such as the winner of the 4pm drawing who’s off to Tamarack and Schweitzer after he outfits himself with new winter gear from Escape Outdoors.
The event was hosted in the back gaming area of the Microsoft Store on their huge screen as well as at Escape Outdoors. Idaho brochures and Travel Guides were on-hand for reading—and free for the taking.
