CMC Rail Jam | CMC Snow Day photo contestShow us how you #CMCSnowDay and enter to win sweet outdoor gear and local prizes.

Leadville students know how to enjoy a powder day; fat-biking the campus trails, hitting features in the backyard terrain park, grooming trails on Colorado ski slopes, or even building a snowman with your friends! February 1st through February 28, the @CMC_Leadville Instagram will be hosting the #CMCSnowDay Adventure Contest. Students are invited to share their best videos and photos from this past winter, for a chance to win cool outdoor gear and prizes. Students are limited to 2 entries per person. It must be original content, meaning a CMC Leadville student must have captured and/ or starred in the content. Entries will be judged based on creativity, quality, and originality.  The top 3 winners will be chosen on March 1st.

There’s more than one way to enjoy a #CMCSnowDay.
