An Entry must be received during the Competition Period in order to be eligible. Contestants may submit one Entry per 24 hour period. If a Contestant submits more than one Entry per 24 hour period (being a period of 24 hours that commences with submission of the entry) only the first Entry will be eligible.
All Entries that are incomplete, illegible, damaged, irregular, have been submitted through illicit means, or do not conform to or satisfy any condition of these Official Rules may be disqualified by Whistler Blackcomb. Whistler Blackcomb takes no responsibility for lost, stolen, delayed, damaged, misdirected, late or destroyed entries, or for typographical, production or other errors.

RULES: The Competition will be run in accordance with these Official Rules (the “Rules”). Contestants must comply with the Rules, and will be deemed to have received and understood the Rules by submitting an Entry and participating in the Competition. Whistler Blackcomb may, at any time and solely within their discretion, cancel, terminate, suspend and/or amend the Competition and the Rules. The terms of the Competition, as set out in the Rules, are not subject to amendment or counter-offer, except as set out herein. Whistler Blackcomb’s decisions with respect to the Competition are final and binding. If any provisions of the Rules are held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, all remaining provisions hereof will remain in full force and effect.
WINNER DETERMINATION: The first Contestant to submit an Entry correctly identifying the location within Whistler Mountain Bike Park (the “Location”), as determined by Whistler Blackcomb, of the picture presented on the Competition website found at thegoldennug.ca will be the contest winner (the “Winner”) and receive an email and/or pop-up notification identifying them as such. Should no Contestant submit an Entry correctly identifying the Location during the Competition Period, the Winner will be the Contestant who submitted an Entry which identifies a location closest to the Location. If multiple Entries identify the same or different locations that are equidistantly closest to the Location, the Contestant who submitted the Entry prior in time will be the Winner. Any tie will be resolved by a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question.
PRIZE:Subject to the conditions set out below, the Winner will receive a 2019 Whistler Mountain Bike Park Unlimited Pass (retail value between $710-830 CAD) (the “Prize”). The winning Entry and details of the Winner may be shared through Whistler Blackcomb social media channels. The Prize is not transferable, not exchangeable, and not refundable. It must be accepted by the Winner as awarded.
ODDS:The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received during the Competition Period and the accuracy of the locations submitted in each Entry.
CONDITIONS OF WINNING: Before being publicly declared the official Winner and entitled to the Prize, the Winner will be required to sign and return to Whistler Blackcomb within the period indicated a declaration and release form: confirming compliance with the Rules and acceptance of the applicable Prize as offered; acknowledging the non-responsibility of Whistler Blackcomb and their respective employees, directors, officers, representatives and agents with respect to liability, damage, injuries, accident, loss or misfortune relating to (i) participation in the Competition or any related activity, and/or (ii) acceptance, possession, use or misuse of the applicable Prize or any component thereof, to the extent permitted by law; and acknowledging the right of Whistler Blackcomb’s and their respective employees, directors, officers, representatives and agents to collect and publish or broadcast the Winner’s likeness, name, address, voice and statements made in relation to the Competition in any publicity, promotion or advertisement carried out by Whistler Blackcomb or its authorized agents worldwide without further notice or compensation, other than the Prize offered.
In the event that the Winner is not eligible to claim the Prize, or is unwilling or unable to comply with the Rules, or any notification identifying a Contestant as the Winner is returned as undeliverable, his/her Entry will be disqualified and an additional Entry will be chosen from remaining eligible Entries received during the Competition Period (as applicable) until such time that a new Winner is found and the Prize has been successfully awarded and claimed.
The Winner is solely responsible for the reporting and payment of any applicable taxes on or associated with the acceptance and use of the Prize.
