Valdez, Alaska – December 28, 2013.
Tailgate Alaska is pleased to announce the Tailgate Alaska X Dupraz Ski Design Contest where entries will design the next graphic
for the award winning Dupraz D2 skis.
Introduced in 2012, the Dupraz D2 immediately set the European ski world on fire, winning the ISPO 2012 Product of the Year with its radical shape and deep carving capability. According to ISPO jury member Alfredo Tradati, the D2 ski can be used on piste and on powder, and obtain different performance in powder or when you cross the slopes.
The top three graphics, according to online votes, will move onto a final, on January 26th, 2014, where a panel of Tailgate Alaska and Dupraz staff members will decide which graphic to produce.
On January 29th, we will announce the winner of the Tailgate Alaska X Dupraz Ski Design Contest. The winner of the contest will get one of the limited edition boards and a ticket to Tailgate Alaska.
The contest can be followed on facebook at http://facebook.com/tailgateak Tickets to the seventh annual Tailgate Alaska, March 28- April 6, 2014 are available now online.
