Ski Utah and Live Like Sam Partner for the Forever Grateful Giveaway

Celebrate your love for skiing and snowboarding through positive messages of gratitude on social media, and enter for a chance to win amazing prizes.

Salt Lake City, UT (October 10, 2019) — Ski Utah is proud to announce that they have partnered with Live Like Sam and to spread positivity and joy with the Forever Grateful Giveaway.

Sam Jackenthal was a U.S. Junior National Ski Champion, an internationally-ranked freestyle skier and competitive inline rollerblader. More than this, he was an exceptionally kind, giving and fun-loving kid who valued compassion and teamwork over competition. Four years ago, the world lost Sam to a tragic skiing accident in Australia; but while Sam may no longer be with us physically, his spirit has left a tremendous impact on all of those he left behind.

Sam loved the mountains and was happiest with a pair of skis on his feet. Likewise, the joy skiing and snowboarding bring to all of us can't be overstated. That is why Live Like Sam and Ski Utah have joined together to spread some positivity and joy with the Forever Grateful Giveaway.

What is the Forever Grateful Giveaway? It’s simple! We want to spread our love of skiing and snowboarding through positive messages of gratitude on social media. Three skiers and snowboarders who demonstrate their gratitude will receive awesome prize packs from Live Like Sam and Ski Utah, with the first place prize including four lift tickets to Utah resorts!
