To get you more excited, here’s a little more info on the Ice Sports University Weekend:
Nestled in between the Green and White Mountains above the Connecticut River, Lake Morey Resort is more than 100 years old with third generation family ownership. During its inaugural ISU Weekend, guests of all ages and athletic abilities can learn to curl, Nordic skate, play pond hockey, ice fish, snowshoe and Nordic ski. With its own 600-acre lake providing the icy playground for the weekend’s festivities, the resort will have instructors on-hand giving one-hour lessons on Saturday morning and afternoon, culminating with a friendly competition from 3 pm to 4 pm for those who wish to try their new skills in action. Prizes and participation “diplomas” will be awarded during a fun Graduation Ceremony on Sunday morning.
Throughout the weekend, the resort’s complimentary 120-seat indoor movie theater will be streaming classic Olympic and winter-sports-themed movies, and a variety of other indoor activities are available for “ice widows and widowers,” from swimming and table tennis, to massages and other treatments in the resort’s Waters Spa. On Friday and Saturday evening, guests can enjoy live entertainment in the Steamboat Lounge, and the Lake Morey Beer Master will offer a variety of specialty brews on tap.

The contest will run one week, and it’s last-minute!
With the ISU Weekend—and so the dates the prize must be redeemed—just two weekends away, the circumstances around this contest are unique. Unlike most JohnnyJet.com contests, this one will run from Wednesday, January 8th for one week through midnight PST on
Tuesday, January 14, 2014. Travel arrangements must be confirmed by that Friday, January 17, so make sure to think about who you might take as soon as you enter!
The fine print:
All official rules apply. Also, the total value of the prize package is $858 and it can only be used during ISU Weekend, January 24th, 25th and 26th. Prize bookings must must be made by Friday, January 17th. During booking, the winner will choose three activities in which to participate during scheduled workshops. Choices include curling, Nordic skating, pond hockey, ice fishing, snowshoeing and Nordic skiing.
Good luck, and go USA at Sochi 2014!
