One winner was chosen from the Oris World Cup promotion with Ski magazine to claim a free weekend trip at the World Cup ski races and a Oris BC3 Advanced Day Date watch.
From a successful turnout of over 5,000 entries, Theresa Joyce was chosen as the winner of the Oris World Cup promotion. Joyce and her husband Paul were treated to a complimentary trip during the first weekend of December 2011 to the Birds of Prey World Cup ski races in Beaver Creek, Colorado. The prize included two nights’ accommodations at the Charter Hotel, weekend lift tickets, VIP access to events such as the Savor the Slopes culinary event featuring top chefs from around the country, cocktails and a chance to socialize with prominent ski industry figures from the U.S. Ski Team. In addition, Joyce received a Oris BC3 Advanced Day Date watch.
The sporty timepiece offers a range of features, including a variety of dials, black DLC plated stainless steel case, a sapphire top, automatic movement and choice of black rubber or leather strap.
“Christmas came early and Paul and I could not have been happier,” Joyce said. “We got to see some great racing, have some great food, and spend time with great people. A special thank you to MyOris!”
The Audi Birds of Prey World Cup races features a number of events, including downhill races, live entertainment, film productions, ice skating, autograph signing and more that can be enjoyed by family and friends.
During the Men’s Downhill Race, skilled racers attempt to be the fastest one down the mountain as they pass through a number of control gates. The hills usually average a 750-meter vertical drop, at the least, and racers tend to exceed speeds over 80 mph.
At The Bird’s Nest, a public tent, hungry and thirsty spectators at the races can enjoy the provided food, beverages, beer garden and live music.
Spectators can also meet and mingle with some of the members of the U.S. Ski Team and even score free autographs during the eventful weekend.
The World Cup calendar also features the Women’s Super G, a one-run event similar to that of a downhill race, but with added frequent turns to challenge the most technical of racers.
Following each event, formal awards were handed out to the victors.
In partnership with Ski Magazine, the luxury watch brand Oris provided a chance for the public to score a free Oris timepiece and weekend trip to the races.
