2023-24 Neck Gaiter Design Contest Winner
During the summer of 2023, Diamond Peak put out a call to our enormously talented pool of fans and followers, looking for design ideas for our 2023-24 ski season neck gaiters. When all the submissions were in and the voting was tallied, our judges loved a design by local watercolorist Meg Wilson (pictured wearing her design) she nicknamed “color blocks.”
We asked Meg a few questions about her design:
What inspired you to enter our neck gaiter design contest? And how did your inspiration translate into the winning design that was chosen?
I saw the Diamond Peak neck gaiter contest on social media. I guessed other entries would be digital art, and with so much in our lives being technology driven, I thought it would be fun to enter a hand-painted piece.
For the color blocks design: Lake Tahoe is such a colorful place with the blue/aqua lake, wild flowers in the summer and the multicolored sunsets. I wanted to reflect all those colors in my painting. The blue square on the bottom has a hint of pine trees.
How long have you been painting for? And how did you get into your art?
I’ve been painting on and off for many years but have recently gotten back into painting regularly.
I was a theater major in college and have always been artistic in one way or another. I’ve really enjoyed getting back into painting and drawing – it’s become my passion!
How long have you been skiing/snowboarding at Diamond Peak?
My family and I have been skiing at DP since 2016.
Favorite run at Diamond Peak?
On a bluebird day the view from Crystal Ridge is stunning and unbeatable. With lots of snow Luggi’s is super fun!
