  3. The contest begins on Monday, December 14th.
  4. Clues will be announced each day at 6:45am, 9:45am, 12:45pm, and 3:45pm.  At 6:45pm, a review of all the previous clues will be given.

  6. Please do not contact Purgatory Resort or the radio stations for help or to repeat clues.

  10. The prize is as follows:  Four season passes for the 2015-16 season, to be issued to the winner, his/her spouse or partner, and winner’s children.  In the case that the winner does not have a spouse, partner, or children, we will issue a total of four season passes to the winner and three other individuals of winner’s choosing.
