That headline sounds like a Tony Robins seminar. Sorry. We are looking for good storytellers, photographers and videographers. Last year was a little slanted to stills—this year we may look more for vids or a good yarn. We also want information that will be used by other backcountry skiers who might want to tour the same area you were at. We need to see a minimum of 100 words, with a photo (jpeg 72 ppi, 1500 pixels max width) and or a video [swf flash file or embedded youtube video]. You must title your post: “COMP – name of you post here” in order to be considered and you can post in any of the touring location forums. If you have an epic adventure you want to submit but are having trouble with the instructions on our site, let us know and we’ll help you out as best we can.
