(Mississauga, Ontario) – CertainTeed is pleased to announce “Hit the Slopes with Alex”, an exciting new contest with Alex Bilodeau, three-time Olympian. Two lucky winners plus one guest each will join Alex for a private ski day and lunch at the Mont Saint-Sauveur ski resort in Quebec this winter.

“CertainTeed is proud to partner with such a respected and accomplished athlete,” says Marlon Thompson, marketing product manager for CertainTeed Insulation. “Alex has been instrumental in helping us spread the word to homeowners about the importance of keeping a home properly insulated, especially during the long Canadian winter season.”

The contest is open to residents of Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and through Rona locations in the three provinces. To enter online, visit sustainableinsulation.ca.

The “Hit the Slopes with Alex” contest runs from September to November, with winners selected in December. The ski day will be scheduled in early 2017.

Alex Bilodeau is a retired Canadian freestyle skier from Montreal, Quebec. He has the honorable distinction as the first Canadian ever to win a gold medal on home soil, finishing first in the men’s mogul event at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. He won again at the 2014 games in Sochi. The three-time Olympian has also appeared on 48 World Cup podiums, 19 times as the gold medal winner.
