Describe the objective of the promotion.
Our challenge was to turn a sponsorship programme between an energy company and the Swedish and International Skiing Federation into something that was really useful to ordinary skiers.

The objective was to connect with these skiers and make as many of them as possible both download the application but more importantly use it in order to track, challenge and compete to become King of The Slope.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
The core item was a smartphone application called King of the Slope. We designed a campaign to drive awareness and interest and to provoke skiers to challenge or to take on the challenge to become the King of The Slope.

We used TVC and print to drive awareness and downloads, tactical initiatives to drive the competitive element (e.g. stickers in taxi cars at ski resorts). We partnered with famous skiers and used their blogs as platforms and we used on site activities, like the digital score board, to celebrate the ones who became the King of the Slope.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Our starting point was built on a genuine insight that skiers gladly brag about who skied the most, fastest or 'baddest'. These feuds were previously settled during loud discussions and the outcome often coloured by subjectivity. To resolve this we developed a mobile application that made it possible to track your runs, challenge your friends and compete for daily King of the Slope titles on ski resorts worldwide.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The application quickly became the most popular downloaded application in its category. During the ski season 2011 – 2012, more than 100,000 skiers have downloaded the app. Tens of thousands of challenges between friends have been created and only calculated from the skiers who shared their data on Facebook, over 200m vertical drop metres have been accumulated (that´s the same distance as from the earth to the moon and back, 256 times!).
