Sun Peaks, BC – After reviewing photographic entries from around the world, the Sun Peaks jury has selected Brandy Rogers, of Washington State, as the official winner of Snow Bum 2: The Snapshot.

“The contest challenged contestants to submit a photo that demonstrated their passion for winter and the Snow Bum lifestyle. Brandy’s did that without question and was full of fun and creativity,” says Melanie Simmons, Media Relations and Communications Specialist with Tourism Sun Peaks. “The image of Brandy being towed by a dirt bike as she rides her board down sand in a bikini no less is a great shot, and a wonderful testament to all things Snow Bum.”

Brandy’s grand prize includes six nights’ accommodation at Sun Peaks Resort for her and three friends, plus a full day on the slopes with Kevin Hagell of Kaizen Visuals filming an exclusive winter-themed video! Kevin is a highly regarded sport videographer who has worked with the likes of Adidas, Scion and Von Zipper and is also the creator of Sun Peaks’ own winter promotional video. The prize also includes $1000 airfare per person for Brandy and her three friends.

Brandy will be coming to Sun Peaks within the next six weeks to redeem her prize.
