Los Angelista Giveaway: We Ski & Snowboard for Nintendo Wii

I know many of you living here in the States are getting pounded today with crazy amounts of snow. That's NOT the case here in Los Angeles!

Don't ask me why, but the snow just never seems to want to come down out of the mountains and make friends with our palm trees!

I still sympathize with you though because I grew up in the Midwest. I may not be digging out from the umpteenth blizzard of the winter season these days, but all this snow means it's perfect timing for my latest giveaway: Two copies* of Namco Bandai's We Ski & Snowboard for Nintendo Wii!

Maybe you're too broke to rent skis, buy lift tickets or get that cute snow bunny ski jacket. Yeah, me too! These days I'm all about finding free and low-cost ways to entertain myself and my family.

Well, instead of driving two hours to spend mucho dinero on hot chocolate at the ski resort, all I need to do is whip out my Wii Balance Board and make my own cocoa in my kitchen. And instead of falling on my butt over and over in the snow, all I have to do is step on the board. That's good for me because I've never ever been skiing in my entire life and I would probably spend the entire time wiping out.

Oh another nice thing? There is no worrying that my kids are gonna knock their teeth out or break a leg while trying to do back flips on a snowboard. All they have to do is maneuver on that Balance Board.

What, you think it sounds like I'm depriving my kids and myself of the opportunity of sliding down the side of a real mountain? Trust me, one of these days we'll take the drive out to Big Bear or Mammoth Mountain and spend the ducats to do the whole ski chalet thing. But that day won't be today, so in the meantime we'll just practice our skiing skills with We Ski & Snowboard.

So how can you win?
1) Be a resident of the continental United States.
2) Leave me a comment on this post before 11:59 PM on Thursday, March 5, 2009. You don't have to tell me anything special, like describing how badly you want skier thighs too. Nope, just say whatever like, "Los Angelista, you're SO awesome, I'm gonna buy you Depeche Mode tickets to the Vegas show!"

You want extra entries? Here's how to get them:
1) Link to this contest on your blog and come back and let me know in the comments that you did.
2) Twitter this contest and
come back and let me know in the comments that you did.

Good luck!

*Two copies means two winners, not two copies of the game for one winner!


losangelista--I love your blog! I was so excited when I found out that you have a twitter page. I, too, grew up in the midwest--in Cincinnati--then I moved to Southern Cali in high school. I now reside in Md. with my daughter

I'm starting a blog this month, and I'll definitely be adding you to my blogroll.
I twittered the contest...wish me luck everyone..i think this Wii game will help me lose some of this pregnancy weight in time for summer!! LOL!

I love my wii. I got a free snowboarding game with my wii fit board, but it's not wii snowboarding. It's so much fun.

I think i need to have one of these - being an ex-ski racer and all!

Of course, if I win this, I'd actually need to buy a Wii, but hey, one step at a time.. :)

P.S. I DO love your blog!

Hi Los Angelista's...I do love your wittiness, your hair and your BLOG! My son and I would love to win the We Ski & Snowboard for Nintendo Wii. We (my son and I) just came in from the snow, so I'm going to warm up, but plan to blog about your contest. I will let you know when it's done. Thanks always!

The first - well, only - time I went downhill skiing, I fell getting off the chairlift and took my lovely partner with me. It only got worse from there. :)

Yay for contests!

I am almost ashamed that I clicked out of my reader right to ur blog just so I could enter this contest. Shame on me *slaps hands HAWD*

But here im is! *frantic wave!*
liz! so perfect for me! i was just searching for such a game on amazon.

first, i went and addicted myself to a fit because of your rave review, and second i decided i simply MUST master some winter sport while i live on the east coast - since skiing in chicago amounts to teetering on ice hills in wisconsin. you know how it is!

so amechi and i have been trying to snowboard as much as possible. and what more perfect way to maintain our skills?

either way, let me know if this game is worth trying to dig up some place.

Entering because my boys would really love to play on this one. I just might enjoy taking lots of pictures of a 4 and 6 year old hanging 10 on a virtual snowboard (even though I'm not sure if you hang 10 on snow or not?)
My nephew will love this game... I hope I can win it for his 11th birthday.

I got a Wii not to long ago and then shortly after my cats chewed through the Wii sensor bar wire! Bad bad cats. I've since sold them on Ebay..

Ok, not really but I did just get my replacement sensor bar and am excited about getting on the Wii Fit again and hula-hooping :)

Thanks for the chance!
