New Belgium’s Scavenger Hunt Series Now Underway
Come One, Come All to Experience a Day of Downhill, New Belgium Style
New Belgium Brewing’s annual Scavenger Hunt Series is back. The costume-wearing, chicken-chasing, riddle-reading series provides a day of downhill like no other, while raising money for local nonprofit organizations at every turn.
“A day on the slopes is always a good day, but add in a costume, some scavenging and a post-hunt party, and it quickly becomes a day you’d be foolish to miss,” says Shawn Hines with New Belgium Brewing.
Groups of one to four people can participate in the hunt. Participants are tasked with searching the mountain for moving and stationary clues that focus on New Belgium beer and culture, sustainability, the host ski resort and the benefiting nonprofit. The answers vary from easy to difficult and the team to answer all the clues first is crowned that mountain’s 2013 winner. It costs $10 per person to enter the scavenger hunt, plus the cost of your lift ticket.
After each scavenger hunt, a post-party celebration will be held with prizes and top honors given out. The celebration will also include the chance to win a pair of Rocky Mountain Underground custom-made Fat Tire skis.
New Belgium created the Scavenger Hunt Series seven years ago. For more information, check out www.newbelgium.com/events/scavenger-hunt.aspx and a video on the Series at www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2BQyIRjTCY&feature=youtu.be.
