2018 Rib Mountain snowmelt contest

Spring skiing continued into early May on Granite Peak. That means a lot of people predicted some dates in the snowmelt contest that were a lot later than normal.

Will it be a record late melt this year? The latest ever was July 7th, back in 2014. The entry period is over, and now you can check back here throughout May and June (maybe July?) to see how fast the snow is melting with updated pictures.

Here are the prizes up for grabs. Good luck to everyone who entered.

* 1st place: $250 R-store gift card plus 52 basic car wash coupons.

* 2nd place: $150 R-store gift card

* 3rd place: $100 R-store gift card

* 4th place: $50 R-store gift card

* 5th place: $25 R-store gift card

All other people who pick the correct date but are not drawn in the top 5 will receive a basic car wash coupon from the R-stores.
