If you like extreme winter sports and extreme-weather vehicles, Jeep has launched a contest that could be just your speed. From now through January 19, Jeep is hosting a sweepstakes that could send you to the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado and give you a shot at winning a brand-new 2012 Jeep Wrangler Arctic Edition.
The Winter X Games will be held from January 26 - 29, bringing hardcore skiing and snowboarding to ESPN viewers across the country. A handful of lucky Jeep fans will win trips to the games, and while there, they'll have the chance to participate in the Jeep Arctic Yeti Dig -- a snow-digging spree from which one will person drive away in that new Jeep Wrangler valued at $45,000. (Missed our overview of the Arctic Edition? Check it out here.)
The sweepstakes is being carried out in two phases, the first of which is the most important and ends at 11:59 ET on January 3. There are three ways to enter:
Facebook: Visit the "Arctic Yeti Dig" tab of Jeep's Facebook page. Click the "enter" button, approve the app, and you'll be invited to play a "Yeti Dig" game. It's kind of like a scratch-and-win, where you can score one, two, or three sweepstakes entries in a single go. You can double your entries for the day by sharing the app with friends. You can visit the app once each day for more entries.
Twitter: Follow @Jeep. When prompted, tweet back to the brand, including the "@Jeep" handle and the #yetidig hashtag. You'll earn one sweepstakes entry per day on Twitter.
Jeep Blog: Visit this entry on the Jeep blog and post a comment, including your full name and email addy. You will only receive one entry via the Jeep blog for the entirety of the contest.
On January 4, six winners will be chosen from all entries made to date. According to the official rules, one additional winner will be selected from non-winning entries and additional entries submitted before 11:59pm ET on January 19. Jeep will send those seven folks -- and their plus-ones -- to the 2012 Winter X Games, and on January 27, they'll each have the chance to dig in the snow for a hidden Yeti game piece. The one who finds it makes off in the Wrangler Arctic.
Obviously, your odds are better if you enter before January 3. Get digging, and good luck!
