JTreeRockLife Instagram Contest: Share Rock Climbing Pics to Win!

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Win Tip-Numbing Climbing Chalk and a Dopp Kit from Joshua Tree Skin Care!


What climber couldn’t use some free organic skin salve for their gnarly knuckles, scrapes and sunburns? And don’t act like your hands are too tough for scented, soothing chalk. That’s like saying you’re too macho to kiss your own mama in public.
Nobody is too tough for Joshua Tree Skin Care products.


How to Enter

Share rock climbing photos on Instagram with the hashtag #JTreeRockLife and tag @tahoemountainsports, @jtreelife and one (1) or more of your climbing buddies.


Tahoe Mountain Sports will pick a winner on August 13 and notify them by leaving comment on Instagram. Winner will be asked to provide shipping information via email.

Winning photo based on cool factor (creativity/relevance), not necessarily the highest quality image or number of likes. Let’s see what you’ve got! Anyone who climbs and can take a photo (or have their friend take one) is encouraged to enter.

Chalk (100 g) contains naturally soothing sources of menthol. Dopp Kit includes Organic Skin Salve (1.7 oz), Sunscreen (.35 oz) and Lip Balm (SPF 15, flavor: Mountain Mint). Must be 13+ years to enter. Winner pays shipping outside continental U.S.

#TahoeBikeLOVE Instagram Photo Contest – Win ZOIC Bike Clothing!

Thursday, May 29th, 2014




Contest ends June 21 at midnight PST.

Do you love biking? Want to win $150 in free ZOIC bike clothing? Maybe you just like riding your bike and you have some cool pictures to share. Either way, you can win! Here’s how:

- Between now and June 21, share photos from your biking adventures on Instagram

- Use the hashtag #tahoebikelove and tag @TahoeMountainSports and @ZOICclothing

- Share your photo and ask your friends to LIKE it

- Photo with the most likes by midnight on June 21 wins! (Count begins when you submit the photo, not when you first uploaded it to Instagram.)

It really is that easy. The options for road biking and mountain biking in Lake Tahoe are seemingly endless, so you must have a new (or old) photo somewhere on your phone or computer. It could be you or a friend. Action-packed or simply a pretty picture. You don’t have to be “catching air” in the photo, or doing anything “impressive” at all. All you have to do is show us your #TahoeBikeLOVE!










Share as many photos as you like; entering multiple times can greatly increase your chances.  Winner will be notified via Instagram, so watch for comments from @TahoeMountainSports after the contest has ended. Winner will be instructed to send an email with shipping information from a valid email address. Must be 13 or older to participate. Winner pays shipping outside continental U.S.


Here are just four of the great options you’ll have when you style yourself out in new ZOIC bike clothing:
