UPDATE: WINNER!

We had nearly 100 entries, of which exactly 75% gave the correct answer. But we’ve got just one free ticket to give away, and a random drawing amongst all the correct entries gave us our winner: Congratulations LUKE B. from GREAT BARRINGTON, MA.

SOLUTION!

TAKE THE PRICE IN DOLLARS OF AN ADULT NON-HOLIDAY WEEKDAY LIFT TICKET AT SKI BUTTERNUT

25

SUBTRACT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF DOWNHILL TRAILS AT SKI BUTTERNUT

– 22 = 3

MULTIPLY THAT BY THE NUMBER OF VERTICAL FEET

3 * 1000 = 3000

AND DIVIDE THAT BY THE NUMBER OF TIMES THE LETTER “T” APPEARS IN OUR NAME.

3000 / 3 = 1000

WHAT NUMBER DO YOU GET?

THE ANSWER IS 1000

CONTEST!

Today is WEDS DEC 21, and we’re supposedly just hours away from the winter solstice. But somebody (ahem, Mother Nature) didn’t get the message. Thanks to some very un-winter-like weather, Ski Butternut is closed today. And we know this probably has you in a bummed out mood (we’re bummed too!).

First bit of cheer-you-up news: We’ll reopen tomorrow, and then today will just be but a distant memory.

Second bit of good news: I’M GIVING AWAY A VOUCHER FOR A FREE LIFT TICKET. Well, I’m not just handing it out. You gotta work for it. But not too hard. And you gotta act fast: The contest is TODAY ONLY.

Here are the rules. Solve the trivia question below. You don’t need to have any specialized knowledge or insider information: all of the numbers you need can be found on our website.

Once you think you know the answer, email it to me (richiejay@skibutternut.com). Be sure to use the subject line “DEC GIVEAWAY.” Please include your full name, age, mailing address, and a phone number where you can be reached in the text of the email.

When the entry period is over, I will select from amongst all of the correct answers (if more than one person answers correctly), placing the names in a hat and randomly pulling a single winner.

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, THE TRIVIA QUESTION:

TAKE THE PRICE IN DOLLARS OF AN ADULT NON-HOLIDAY WEEKDAY LIFT TICKET AT SKI BUTTERNUT

SUBTRACT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF DOWNHILL TRAILS AT SKI BUTTERNUT

MULTIPLY THAT BY THE NUMBER OF VERTICAL FEET

AND DIVIDE THAT BY THE NUMBER OF TIMES THE LETTER “T” APPEARS IN OUR NAME.

WHAT NUMBER DO YOU GET?

Hint: No funky decimals or fractions here. These are all nice integers, including the answer.

The rules: Only one entry per person. Minimum age to enter: 14 (kids under 14: tell your parents to enter the contest). Entry period begins as soon as this is posted and ends at 11:59PM EST WED DEC 21, 2011. Emails received after that time will not be considered. Entries must be received by email (answers in the comments on facebook or the blog will not be considered). Winner will be announced on THU DEC 22, 2011. Voucher is good for 1 adult lift ticket, any day this (2011-12) ski season. Voucher has no cash value and cannot be exchanged for any other product.

Good luck!

Be sure to send your answer, along with your name, address, phone, and age, to richiejay@skibutternut.com, with the subject line “DEC GIVEAWAY,” before 11:59PM on WED DEC 21, 2011.
