CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - December 23, 2010) - With the ski season officially here, the East Coast's premier skiing and snowboarding destination, Stowe Mountain Resort, is teaming up with social-gaming app SCVNGR this winter to bring a fun new way for skiers and riders to experience the tallest peak in Vermont.

Stowe Mountain Resort is the first ski and mountain resort to join forces with SCVNGR, the game all about going places, doing challenges and earning points. The mountain is bringing game dynamics to the slopes and engaging with skiers and riders by building Stowe-themed challenges on SCVNGR's customizable social game engine for fun and engaging guest loyalty. These quick challenges, like sharing the name of a favorite Stowe trail or sending in a report of ski conditions, will earn players points towards unlocking special Stowe Badges. Players who earn enough points to unlock Stowe Badges on SCVNGR will have the chance to also win prizes being awarded weekly by Stowe, such as lift tickets, Stowe Points Cards and other sweet prizes.

"We're stoked to be teaming up with Stowe Mountain Resort as the first Ski Mountain to leverage social gaming and reward loyal visitors on SCVNGR," said Ashleigh Reisner, City Princess and outdoors enthusiast at SCVNGR. "Our partnership with such an innovative, quality-driven Ski Mountain will serve as an example for others in the industry to follow."

"We're always looking for new ways to integrate cutting-edge technology and enhance our guests' experience," said Jeff Wise, Director of Communications at Stowe Mountain Resort. "From our on-mountain experience to dining to night life, SCVNGR's social game engine provides a perfect way for Stowe to engage our guests with everything the resort has to offer."

Perfect snow conditions and short lift lines aren't the only things that will get skiers and riders running to the slopes this season!
