Winners of the "Ultimate Mountain Gig" contest announced
The co-winners of the Ultimate Mountain Gig are former Olympic ski racer Kaylin Richardson and ex-British soldier Andy Campbell. Richardson has been a member of the U.S. ski team for ten years and has won four Alpine National Championships and competed in two Olympic games. Campbell served his country in a variety of locations, including Iraq, but was paralyzed from the waist down in a climbing accident in 2004. That hasn't slowed him down one bit however, as he still scuba dives, skis and paraglides all over the world.
Campbell and Richardson were selected for the gig from a pool of 450 applicants. The pair have already gone to work for The Canyons, writing about their experience at the Ultimate Mountain Gig website. Over the next four months or so, they'll be helping to promote the resort by writing blog posts and producing video diaries about their experiences. I'm sure they'll also find plenty of time to hit the slopes and interact with the guests too.
