The Grand Teton Dream Climb Contest

Have you ever dreamed of climbing to the top of some of the highest peaks in the Grand Tetons?

This year could be your year to realize those dreams.

Marmot has recently announced a contest in which two people will receive a four-day climbing expedition in the Grand Tetons, led by Exum Mountain Guides. All you need to do is submit a two-minute video in which you and another person describe yourselves and explain why you should be chosen for the Grand Prize. If chosen, the person submitting the winning video will be deemed the Winner, and the other person who participated in the winning video will be deemed the Companion. The Winner and Companion will train for, and participate in, the Grand Teton climbing expedition.

Here's what the winning video will win you:

• Four-day Grand Teton climbing expedition for two people led by Exum Mountain Guides.

• Customized training and conditioning program developed for two people together by Mountain Athlete.

• Mountain climbing gear and attire provided by Marmot, including jacket, pants, and a training outfit of short-sleeve shirt and shorts.

• Up to $500 per person towards airfare to and from Jackson, Wyoming.

• Lodging for two at the world famous Alpine House in Jackson, Wyoming.

• Up to $400 towards rental car transportation.
