Everyone dreams of skiing like Candide.
So with that thought in mind, Quicksilver is offering a once in a lifetime contest that allows users to submit their most creative “Candide-esque” videos in a chance to win $1,000 in addition to spending a day ripping around Verbier with the man himself, Candide Thovex! Where is this whole deal going down? According to the contest website, Quicksilver will be on the hook for the winner’s 5 day trip to Verbier as well as a grab bag of the best gear Quicksilver and Faction have to offer.
Does it get any better?
No it certainly does not. However there are four rounds before a final, grand prize winner is chosen as the lucky soul who gets to spend a day ripping with the Michael Jordan of skiing. That’s right, I said it– Candide is the Michael Jordan of skiing.
