PITTSBURGH, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DICK'S Sporting Goods (NYSE: DKS), the largest U.S. based full-line sporting goods retailer, today announced the details of its first-ever "Get Winter Ready" consumer promotion.
As part of the program's sweepstakes, DICK'S has partnered with The North Face and Columbia Sportswear to give away two one-of-kind prize packages – one that includes a chance to join professional skier Tom Wallisch at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colo., and the other a VIP experience at the 2013 FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup in Park City, Utah. Additionally, DICK'S is offering five exclusive "Adventures of a Lifetime" packages for purchase that include unique gifts and one-of-a-kind experiences sponsored by Burton/MINI Cooper, KOPPEN, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear and Spyder/Audi.
From now through Dec. 1, consumers can enter for a chance to win one of the prize packages by visiting www.GetWinterReady.com and competing in an interactive online game. Participants are transported online to a cabin in the mountains where four young adventure seekers are waking up. Through the eyes of a character, users pan the room to find hidden clothing and other items to prepare for the adventure of the day. The faster the adventure is completed, the greater the number of entries users earn towards the chance of winning one of the two sweepstakes packages.
"We are thrilled to partner with this great lineup of top outdoor brands to offer our customers these amazing opportunities to win or purchase an 'Adventure of a Lifetime' this winter," said Lauren Hobart, Chief Marketing Officer at DICK'S Sporting Goods. "We encourage customers to play the state-of-the-art 'Get Winter Ready' online game for a chance to win an incredible experience."

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
