How do you survive winter in Maine? Do you embrace it? Or escape it?

If you're an escaper then you probably hate winter. You want to leave during the coldest months of Maine to go somewhere warm (or pampered where you can let your mind wander to warmer destinations).

Or maybe you're an embracer. You know, you love winter. You want to spend every moment outside. When there's a blizzard, there you are, thriving in it.

Well, we’ve teamed up with Maine Spirits on a giveaway designed to celebrate your survival instincts.

One “embracer” will be drawn to win a $500 gift card to Arlberg Ski Shop, plus a pair of ski passes to each of the following mountains: Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Shawnee Peak, and Mt. Abram.

One “escaper” will be drawn to win a two-night stay at the AC Hotel Portland Downtown Waterfront with breakfast for two at the AC Kitchen, a $50 gift card to the AC Lounge and a $100 gift card to Nine Stones Spa.

Not bad huh?

All you have to do for your shot at these sweet prizes is enter the contest HERE. On the contest page make sure you click on the "Embrace or Escape" multiplier and tell us which one you are, and that will put you in the running for the respective prize.

Just enter Embracer or Escaper! It's that easy.

But hurry, because the contest ends online on February 21. This is a multi-market contest.
