Instagram Challenge: #ToughSnowSports

Grab your snow gear, because this week’s @Columbia1938 Instagram challenge is dedicated to getting outside, hitting the slopes, and shredding some pow! Your photos will be judged by our friends, the U.S. Ski Team.

This challenge is dedicated to experiencing the joy of being outside in the winter season, when the snow is fresh and hot chocolate is flowing.


Our friends at the U.S. Ski Team are definitely experts when it comes to hitting the slopes. They provide leadership and direction for tens of thousands of young skiers and snowboarders, encouraging and supporting them in achieving excellence.

Whether you are shredding that pow, cross-country skiing through a valley, or snowshoeing through frosted forests, we want to see your epic snow adventure shots!
