If you’re a frequent skier or boarder to Whitewater Ski Resort, then getting to the hill late can be a bit of a grind.

That’s because being late generally means a long walk to the lodge and chair.

The Whitewater Ski Team has a solution for skiers and boarders missing the alarm-clock-wake-up-call.

The ski team is back hosting the Rockstar Raffle, which not only gives the winner a a front-row parking spot reserved until 12:30 p.m. every single day, but also a free season pass to Whitewater.

“It’s going to be another record breaking year,” says Whitewater Ski Team president Tracy Punchard.

“We broke the record for ticket sales last year,” Punchard added, ”and we want to do so again this year because we have also broken our enrolment record.”

Whitewater Ski Team has more than 100 racers ready to compete on the circuit this season, which means more kids in the area who will benefit from the proceeds of the raffle.

And who doesn’t want to be a rockstar?,” Punchard exclaimed.

Punchard said second prize is just as awesome, with the ticket holder winning a pair of Atomic Automatic 102 skis sized to fit from the Village Ski Hut. 

The third prize winner will enjoy a night’s stay in a deluxe room at any Prestige Hotel. 

Punchard said the Rockstar winner already has a season pass, the winner will receve full refund of the pass.

Tickets are available at the Whitewater Resort offices, at the lodge as of opening weekend, or from one of the many ski team families.

The draw date is Sunday, December 21st and tickets are $10.
