And The Backcountry Purist Winner Is...

Another lucky skier is about to be armed with a backcountry ski gear set up from G3! We partnered with the Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia Association (BLBCA) for their first ever Backcountry Purist contest, and they're pleased to announce that the winner is Julie-Anne Davies. The BLBCA has been seeking the ultimate Backcountry Purist; a skier/snowboarder who will receive a fully guided and catered ski/snowboard four-week purely blissful snow extravaganza to four BLBCA backcountry lodges during the winter of 2013.

“We are thrilled to announce the winner of the 2012 Backcountry Purist as Julie Anne Davies.” said Brad Harrison, BLBCA’s executive director. “Davies’ entry shared a compelling story, was wonderfully creative and demonstrated an absolute passion for the backcountry. All three components of her entry were amazing and the feedback from the online community no doubt supported our decision.” 

The Purist’s prize is valued at more than $20,000, and includes a gear setup from G3 and Arcteryx. While at the four lodges, Davies will send the outside world photos, stories and video depicting the adventures she’ll be immersed in. Look for Davies’ content and adventure-filled media next season on, Facebook and Twitter, and of course G3's Houseblend Blog.

“For those following the adventure next year, who am I? I am a skier and a mountain lover. I’m a photographer, a yurt dweller, a gardener, a traveler, a wife and a PROUD momma of two fabulous little people. I was born and raised, and still live in the beautiful mountain community of Kimberley, BC.” explained Davies as she reflected on becoming BLBCA’s Backcountry Purist. “I need to pause for a moment and catch my breath. I can't believe that the honour of being the Purist is mine!”

Congratulations again Julie-Anne. We're looking forward to see your new G3 gear in action on those hut trips. Enjoy.
