Example #openingday images

Tips To Enter: From the first chair of the year at your favorite ski resort, to the “opening day” at an ice-climbing crag, we’re giving creative license to capture the moment where winter starts for you and your activity of choice. Winter running, snowshoeing, cold-weather bike commuting, ice skating, backcountry skiing, and more… all of these unique “opening day” scenarios are valid. Hint: Not required, but bonus points to be awarded for any #openingday image that includes Omni-Heat reflective apparel.

Details On The Prizes: 24 prizes in all, including four gift cards ($250 each) plus 20 Omni-Heat winter hats (men’s and women’s styles available) in total.

Deadline: Final #OpeningDay submissions must be made by December 15, 2013. Good luck!
