STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colorado – Skiers and snowboarders have a chance to win a trip for four to Steamboat Springs when they enter the Black Tie Ski Rentals Facebook photo contest. The company is launching the promotion in celebration of its 10-year anniversary. The contest launches Nov. 15 on the Black Tie corporate Facebook site at

“We thought this was a fun way to engage our customers, but also a great way to say ‘thank you’ for making us the largest ski rental delivery company in North America,” said Ian Prichard, co-founder of Black Tie Ski Rentals. “Over the last decade we’ve grown from operating out of a one-car garage to having 13 owner-operated locations that service more than 35 world-class resorts. We thought giving away a trip to Steamboat – where it all started – was a great way to honor our customers who’ve been so loyal to us over the years.”

Photo submissions are due by midnight Dec. 31. To enter, Facebook fans must incorporate an image of a black tie into photos submitted for the contest. To make it easy on fans, the company will post a downloadable image of a black tie on its website and Facebook page. Customers can print the black tie to use in photos that they take for the contest. Fans are encouraged to get creative in their use of the black tie in photos. For example, fans might incorporate a black tie on a birthday cake, dress the family up in ski gear wearing the black ties or take a picture of pets wearing the symbol.

The top 10 photos with the most votes by midnight Dec. 31 will be submitted to a panel of judges who will select the top three winners, which will be announced on Jan. 10.

The grand prize includes three nights lodging, airfare, lift tickets and ski/snowboard rentals. The second place winner receives four pair of goggles and third place wins four pair of ski socks.
