Julbo Launches "Glen Session" Contest to Kick off 2010-11 Winter Season

Count your ski days and enter to win an all-expense paid backcountry ski trip with freeskier legend Glen Plake

WILLISTON, VT - For over 120 years Julbo continues to set the ski and snowboard industry standard in lens technology with an expanding line of performance optics. This winter season, Julbo wants to send one lucky and dedicated skier or rider on an all-expenses paid backcountry ski session with freeskier legend, Glen Plake.

Starting Monday, Nov. 1 and running through Jan. 19, 2011, Julbo encourages all skier and rider aficionados to count their ski days on the Julbo Blog using Julbo's online Ski Day Counter. The top five skiers or riders with the most documented ski days by Jan. 19, 2011 will win a pair of Julbo Revolution goggles, with Julbo's Zebra photochromic lens.

Taking the dedicated bunch to a higher level, the five finalists will have to create a short video and write a brief statement about why they deserve to win the grand prize. Their submissions will be open for public voting beginning in February. The most popular entry will win the ultimate "Glen Session," an all-expense paid ski trip with Julbo and the man behind the colorful mohawk, Glen Plake, in his homegrown Sierra Mountain romping grounds.

Plake, an international ambassador for Julbo, was recently invited into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame for all his dedication, passion and contribution to the sport of skiing. He has traveled the world on two skis, but provides expertise in his home Sierra Mountains, where he will be a lead tour guide for a true backcountry experience with the "Glen Session" winner in mid-April, 2011.

"Glen is a truly a one of a kind ambassador for the sport of extreme skiing," said Nick Yardley, CEO of Julbo, Inc. "His infectious passion for the sport has changed the lives of so many. We're very excited to give one lucky winner the trip of a lifetime to spend a few days with Glen in the backcountry."

Julbo encourages all dedicated skier and riders to participate in the Glen Session contest. Now you have an excuse to ski every day!
