Shauwn McCauley wins $1,000 in lift tickets from Liftopia

Over the month of November we teamed up with Liftopia to give away $1,000 worth of lift tickets to one lucky reader/fan of Snowboard Magazine. That lucky man happened to be Shawn McCauley from Seattle, WA. We hit him up this past week to get a better idea of who he is and what he plans to do with his grand. Here’s what Shaun had to say:

“I live and work in Seattle, WA, so I have a season pass to both Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie Pass since they’re the closest. The past few seasons I’ve probably been averaging 35-40 days a season, trying to keep that consistency going this season (it’s been epic in Washington if you haven’t heard) while juggling work and other crap.

I grew up learning to shred at Crystal Mountain Resort, WA, and throughout college at Gonzaga Universtiy in Spokane, WA, had seasons passes to Schweitzer Mtn., ID. I also try to get up to Baker when I can as well.

This will definitely com in handy for the trip I just booked to Colorado at the beginning of March. Perhaps I’ll have to make a trip up to Whistler again this year since I won’t have to pay for lifts… oh the possibilities.

Thanks again to you guys at Snowboard Magazine and Liftopia, much love.”

Congrats Shaun. Keep the shred alive!
