Santa is a dude, hitting up snow covered ski resorts all over the place this winter.  He’s a bit of a showoff though, taking a host of selfies along the way and posting them up online.  Whilst normally if your mate behaved in such a way  you’d soon soon have a word in their ear and tell them that they’re being a bit of a numpty , on this occasion we’ll let it slide.  The reason being for allowing such behaviour is that santa’s slightly self absorbed selfie collection is the key to you winning your own winter escape.  Have you heard of the Snowbombing festival?  Do you wish to partake in said festival? Well read on young sir/madam.

It’s December 2013 (well, close enough) and Crystal ski are pleased to announce the launch of Santa’s Ski Holiday Advent Calendar! The winning prize will be two tickets to incredible looking Snowbombing festival, which is held in Austria, 7th -12th April 2014. The prize includes travel expenses from the UK to the site, accommodation for the duration of the festival (five nights), and ski gear to boot!  None too shabby huh?

To enter all you need to do is guess where Santa is. Each day from December 1st to 24th he’ll post a selfie and those selfie’s appear automatically in the widget below. Using the clues on each photo, as well as clues that can be found on the Crystal Ski website, you simply need to guess where exactly he is.  How simple is that?

Closing date: 24 December 2013

Winners will be announced on 9 January 2014

Full terms and conditions are below, please read them!  Whilst Backpacks and Bunkbeds is helping host this competition, we are not responsible for its terms and conditions or the prize.  Read up to make sure you can enter and are eligible to win.

Aside for those important words to the wise, have fun and best of luck guys!
