n31601254_31049873_2628540Claire Smallwood was the clear winner of the 2009 Goggle Tan competition.  No competitor came close to Smallwood’s funny looking face.  More like I did not even come close to Claire.  Claire looked like she had goggles on even when she did not.  The bottom half of the face was very dark while the top half looked like it had not seen the sun in five months, oh wait it didnt!

The contest began in November and ended in the end of April.  Claire logged 114 days this winter.  Claire is an Alta hound, and skied in any conditions.  She ripped up the pow, and soaked up the sun.  Congrats Claire!!!

Claire wants to thank her sponsors PM Gear, Hot Chillys, Alta, FlyLow Gear, and  “Sometimes underdogs really do come out on top. Everyone thought Lindsey was going to win and I felt the pressure to really step it up.”
