Mountain Gear Teams With Marmot, KSPS Spokane and the National Park Service

The Leading Outdoor Gear Retailer Is Teaming With Marmot and KSPS Spokane to Give Families a Chance to Experience Their National Parks

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2010) - Mountain Gear, KSPS, Marmot and the National Park Service have all teamed up to bring inland northwest families a chance to win a camping trip to Glacier National Park AND the gear to make it happen. The National Park Sweepstakes grew from the popularity of the recent Ken Burns series, The National Parks: America's Best Idea. Mountain Gear and KSPS promoted the series with local events including travelogues showcasing individual national parks, instructional talks by rangers and outdoorsmen, and tips on packing, camping, outdoor cooking and more.

Entering the contest is easy. Contestants simply fill out an entry form online at or at Mountain Gear's Spokane store located at 2002 N Division. The grand prize gear package from Marmot includes a Den four-person tent, four EcoPro sleeping bags, four Eiger 35 backpacks, four Precip jackets and pants, a $100 gas voucher, park entrance fee and two nights of camping. Winners for the Grand Prize and other Marmot and Mountain Gear prizes will be selected on or around April 15, 2010.
