Darth Vader invades Silver Star

Silver Star Mountain Resort is calling all filmmakers and photographers to reveal a side of the resort never seen before, with its 'Through the Eyes Of' photo and video contest.

The contest is seeking submissions on what Silver Star might be like through the eyes of a person’s favourite celebrity, stuffed animal or pet. The more creative, the better.
“With our all-inclusive lift pass including downhill, cross-country, snowshoeing, skating and tubing, visitors to Silver Star end up with so many different views of the ski resort,” says Anne Haight, director of sales and marketing for Silver Star,

“The 'Through the Eyes Of' contest is a great opportunity for contestants to show us what they love most about the resort while winning prizes.”

To kick off the contest, the resort has created a video of its own featuring Darth Vader.
First contestants need to choose their story, choose their character and post their video or photo to #MyMtn on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Then they need to email the submission to [email protected]

Submissions should be fun, creative, and original. First prize includes a $1,000 Silver Star gift card or a 2014/15 adult season pass.

The contest started on January 1, 2014 and ends March 31, 2014.

Monthly prizes for best photos and best videos will be awarded each month and include Silver Star gift cards, Ski Dazzle retail merchandise, lift tickets, and more.
Silver Star was recently named to the Daily Telegraph’s Top 15 ski resorts along with Italy’s ‘Courmayeur;’ France’s ‘Les Gets’, and Austria’s ‘Alpbach’. The Telegraph is one of Britain’s largest national newspapers.
