GRAND PRIZE: Aspen / Snowmass Vacation For Two


Ben Mincks / Laramie, WY – University of Wyoming / Steamboat, Winter Park / Mr. Travis Parker

Ben, how does it feel to win the Aspen Vacation?
It feels pretty damn good…!
Who are you bringing and why?
Not too sure yet… Any ladies wanna go?
Biggest thing you ever won?
An Old Milwaukee bar stool from some liquor store.
How’d you celebrate the prize?
Partied for two nights in Denver for my boy Keith Kyhl’s 21st.
Ever ridden in Colorado before?
Yes, sir. I’ve had either the Colorado Pass or the Rocky Mountain Super Pass for the last four years.
I’ve not ridden Aspen though, so I’m looking forward to that!

Last words?
Big thanks to all my friends, family, and of course, TWSnow and Aspen/Snowmass.
I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity.
