    Want to help a little ski area (Shames) out? Vote for us in a contest.

    Hey mags,
    We've entered our little hill in a contest to get $50K from da man. Mackenzie Investments is running a contest to give $50 big ones ($4,000 US) to the ski community most "invested" in their hill in Canada. We've had a pretty amazing snow year at our hill, but it's been a tough one financially as we had significant expenses getting Shames operational in times of Covid. This involved almost $100K in lodge and rental shop renos, a new wifi system for online ticket purchases, contactless payment etc etc. On top of that one of our snow cats calved to the tune of $100K. So what would have been a pretty good season for us given increased numbers, now is not so great. We've also got some pretty large maintenance bills coming down the pipe. OK, ok I'm done pleading...

    Here's what you can do, if you've a couple of minutes to spare to help a brother (and his ski hill) out. Go to this site:
    https://www.mackenzietoppeak.ca/?fbc...43SA#/findpeak

    Put Shames Mountain in the search function thingee and press the button. Then hit the vote button. That's it, even I figured it out first time.

    Thanks mags. I will show you at least one of my stashes if you come here next season.

    You guys fucking rock. Thank all you so much. And, I'm really serious about the stash talk (and no teamdirt, not the movember one. It's quite pathetic).

    Sometimes doing things on the inter webs feels good.
    Being the dirty whore that I am, it felt even better going back for sloppy seconds.

    I voted too. Never been to Shames. But I am a big fan of the small local hills.
