Want to win a five-day private ski trip? Tourism British Columbia's Great Mountain Giveaway contest offers a grand prize vacation for one of the province's resorts.

The winner of the contest sweepstakes gets a five-day, four-night ski or snowboard vacation to one of British Columbia's resorts. The prize includes accommodations, lift tickets, rentals, and round trip airfare.

But here's the big deal. The prize not only includes you, but also 19 of your friends or family. Your group will also have one day of exclusive access to certain runs and lifts. Yes, that means no lift lines. Some of the prize options vary with certain resorts; check out the options in the official sweepstake rules.

The entry requires choosing one of 13 B.C. resorts : [R17R, Apex], [R364R, Silver Star], [R288R, Mount Washington], [R1093R, Kicking Horse], [R336R, Red Mountain], [R199R, Kimberley], [R499R, Whitewater], [R2804R, Revelstoke], [R312R, Panorama], [R146R, Fernie], [R438R, Sun Peaks], [R50R, Big White], and [R493R, Whistler Blackcomb]. Information on each resort is available here at OnTheSnow.com to make a comparison, along with trail maps, video, and snow conditions.

All entries, which are limited to one per person or e-mail address, must be received by March 1, 2010. The contest is open to Canadian and U.S. residents only, and entries must be submitted online.

Winners will be announced in March. Prizes must be used this spring on specific dates in March or April.
