VRBO gives away a whole mountain: Win a vacation home stay complete with a private ski resort

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 17, 2018 – An entire mountain, nary another skier nor snowboarder to break your rhythm or cut the lift line, majestic Utah views. VRBO® — the website where you can rent vacation homes, cabins and condos — is giving one lucky winner and up to 19 of their friends and family an entire ski resort for a day. Win the Mountain Sweepstakes opens today and runs through November 17.

“Vacationers who value privacy already know that VRBO is the place to go for homes all to themselves, so offering a chance to win a whole ski resort experience takes it a big, logical and unforgettable step further,” said Melanie Fish, VRBO’s travel expert. “Talk about having it all, whether that’s the ideal place to get little ones on skis, somewhere to seriously shred without a care or a cozy corner with bottomless hot chocolate, this opportunity is for you.”

The winner and their crew will enjoy a day to themselves at Eagle Point Resort in Beaver, Utah. The prize package comes with private ski instruction, a travel stipend and a three-night stay in a luxurious mountain home close to the resort. With two levels of a wrap-around porch and enough room to accommodate up to 25 people, the home is made for unwinding after a long day on the slopes.

“We reserve days throughout the season for groups seeking the ultimate ski or snowboard experience, where their dream will come true in literally having the entire resort all to themselves — the trails, the lodges, the lifts and hopefully tons of powder too," explained Shane Gadbaw, owner and CEO of Eagle Point Resort. “When VRBO wanted to offer this experience to one of their travelers, we knew we had to say yes. As the market leader in crafting private resort experiences, we are all about catering to those who crave privacy and solitude, so partnering with VRBO, who does the same, was a no-brainer. Our staff looks forward to welcoming the lucky winner and their family or friends and delivering for them a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience."
