Thanks to Matador, we have a new opportunity for one of humankind’s greatest pastimes: trying to win free stuff. 

The outdoor equipment brand has teamed up with Banff’s SkiBig3 for a new giveaway, and this one sounds worth the 30 seconds required to sign up. One lucky winner will receive a 3-day ski trip to Banff, Canada, complete with three full-day lift tickets for two people, ski and snowboard rentals, and even transportation from the Calgary airport. 

​Oh, and there’s also the 4 nights in a hotel and two Matador “travel kits.” What’s that, you ask? Basically $1,500 worth of any Matador gear you like (that’s a gift card value of $750 each, applicable to anything in Matador’s online inventory). Choose from travel duffels, daypacks, ultralight gear, travel accessories, and more.

All told, it comes out to $3,600 worth of rewards — and all you need to do is share your name and email address.


It’s certainly an upgrade from Matador’s $1,000 gear giveaway last year

The new “Travel Hard” giveaway is live now through June 16, 2023, and is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Sign up, or learn more now online. No purchase is required to enter or win, though there are multiple ways to score entries.
