VAIL, Colo. – May 30, 2012 – Colorado’s beautifully diverse landscape gives outdoor enthusiasts countless reasons to enjoy nature’s playground all year round. Inspired by the Colorado Lottery and Colorado Tourism Office’s newly released “Hidden Gems of Colorado” scratch game and Second-Chance drawing, the Vail Cascade Resort offering Vail Colorado condominiums, launched its Save & Splurge Summer Sweepstakes. This free scratch game gives Coloradans a chance to win a $10, $25 or $50 summer resort cash on a two-night stay and receive one entry for the grand prize three-night ski getaway to Vail. No advance purchase is required and tickets can be requested online now through Aug. 31.

Millions of people play the Colorado Lottery and odds of winning a coveted prize are 1 in 4.28 million. Non-winners can then go online to try their luck at a Second-Chance win. While the odds of winning Second-Chance dramatically increases, in the end there is only one winner leaving many participants craving a win. Enter Vail Cascade Resort’s Save & Splurge Summer Sweepstakes. With this game, every participant is guaranteed to win $10, $25 or $50 resort cash to use during their summer stay or towards their Vail vacation packages at the Vail Cascade Resort.

In stride with the “Hidden Gems of Colorado” concept to promote in-state travel and exploration, Save & Splurge doles out cash incentives to put Vail Colorado at the top of this summer’s to-do list. Ranked as one of the world’s best ski resorts, Vail beckons travelers in the summer with its sophisticated arts and cultural scene, adventurous landscape and health and wellness experiences.
