Cook Some Chili, Win Some Skis

Ski Haus will be hosting our first Annual Chili Cook-off, Pie Bake-off during our 47th Annual Super Sale. By coming in with your best Chili offering you have a chance to go home with a pair of Rossignol or Armada Skis. If you have an amazing Pie recipe you are dying to share with the world, you could take home a pair of Nordica Boots.

The event will take place on Saturday, October 8th. Contestants need to be at Ski Haus at 3pm with their Chili or Pie ready for judging. We request you bring at least 1 gallon of chili or an 8 inch pie. If you bring more, more people will be able to enjoy! We will provide power, but you must provide a way to keep your chili warm. You must also be able to stick around till 5:30 for winner announcement.

Register for one of the three categories by calling the Ski Haus 970 879 0385, spots are limited, first come, first serve. Ski Haus employees are not eligible to enter (good for entrants because Rod makes a mean Green Chili).

Categories / Prizes:

Red Chili / Any Rossignol Ski on our wall

Green Chili / Any Armada Ski on our wall

Pie / Any Nordica Boot on our wall

Now get in your kitchen and cook up some new skis!

    Can non-locals join the contest?

    • Murray Selleck says:

      Hi Cat,
      Absolutely! You don’t have to live here – you only have to be able to attend to bring your chili or pie and I believe the only thing we’re asking on the photo contest is that the image you submit has been taken in Routt County (Steamboat’s home county). Does that help? Can you enter? Write back or call with any questions. Murray

  • Sarah Katherman says:

    Can I enter more than one category?

    • Murray Selleck says:

      Hi Sarah,
      Yes you can enter in both the green and red chili contest, the pie contest, and our photo contest. We hope you have fun with it and enter whichever categories you like. For the food side of things the more chili or the more pie you bring the more chances our customers get to taste and vote for your entry. It should be really fun! Write back with any questions. Thanks, Murray

  • Jamie Nichols says:

    Is there a fee to enter?

    • Murray Selleck says:

      No fee to enter. Just bring us your best! For chili we ask for at least a gallon or so for tasting but the more you bring the more tastes you can offer and the more votes you’ll receive. Customers at the sale will be judging the chili and pie. Our customers will register to receive a ticket (one vote per customer). We’ll also have a donation jar there to benefit the our local animal shelter. (Ski Haus will match dollar for dollar the donations we collect). I know this is more information than you asked for but there you go… Hope you enter and good luck! Murray

    What was the name of the band that played? They were amazing!!!

    • Murray Selleck says:

      Hi Sara,
      Sorry it took so long to respond. I was lucky enough to take a couple weeks off from work and well… enough excuses. The band is Buffalo Commons Trio. I believe most of those guys play for Old Town Pickers, too. But when it is only the three of them they go by Buffalo Commons. Glad you enjoyed them. I wish I could have listened to them longer. Oh well, next time! Thanks for coming to our sale… Murray
