Pontiac Announces W'ldeTrac00 Grand Prix Promotion at Local Ski Resorts PONTIAC, MI - Pontiac has launched its WideTrack Grand Prix Winterfest Promotion in an ongoing ski resort sponsor- ship taking place at Nevada's Mount Rose lodge on March 2. Main sponsors include the Grand Prix, Dannon and Boost. WideTrack Grand Prix displays are at the base of each moun- tain near the highest traffic ski lift and include catalogs, busi- ness reply cards, videos and a car display. Prospective cus- tomers also may receive more information from on-site prod- uct specialists. To build excitement around the display, ski- ers can race miniature Grand Prixs against the clock and win prizes. Grand Prix assistant brand manager Jim Vurpillat said, "This sponsorship furthers our goal of raising awareness and increasing desire for the all-new Grand thix. It extends the WideTrack message outside the home and hits our active target where they play, while the locations of the vents match areas of opportunity for Grand Prix." Pontiac drives home the message that wider really is bet- mr. Grand Prix designers pushed tbe wbeels deeper into the comers to give the car a distinctive Pontiac Wkle Track look while improving road stability and control and increasing interior space. Pontiac uses sporting quitane.nt examples to illustrate that "Wider is Better" in its print campaigns - wider tennis rackets, bigger golf club sweet spots - not to mention new wider parabolic skis. Pontiac owners have very active life-styks. Grand Prix target buyers are well represented in the skiing population. Grand Prix brand partner and vice president of DMB&B, Pontiac's advertising agency, Brian Dtwoehea- said, "this is an extension of our 'Wider is Better' strategy for the brand. The new boom in skiing is led by the development of the wider ski and its benefit of improved control and turning ability, which matches the benefits of the WideTrack Grand Prix exactly." Pontiac will be visiting 23 ski resorts on weekends and in addition will have on-site signage and other materials through- out more than 100 U.S. ski resorts. The promotion ends in California on March 9. Upcoming Pontiac Grand Prix Winterfest 1997 resort event sites: February 15 - Deer Valley, UT; February 16 - Brighton, UT; February 22 - Snow Valley, CA; February 23 - Bear Mt., CA March 1 - Northstar. CA; March 2 - Mt. Rose, NV; March 8 : SugarBowt, CA; March 9 - Heavenly, CA Variety of trips planned by Sierra Nevada Trail Packers Not many would argue with the fact that the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains offer a spec- tacular environment for summer vacations. Their majesty, however, can be intimidating for people more familiar with concrete and car horns than canyons and cottonwoods. The solution is to take an expertly guided trip on horseback to find nature's finest displays with Frontier Pack Train, based out of June Lake, CA. The month of May features pack trips focus- ing on the untamed, wild mustang. Each day par- ticipants will study the free roaming horses by riding out to the Pizona Area on the Inyo Na-" tionai Forest. Wild mustangs are a source of con, troversy in many western states. While on this trip, discussions about the political evolution of the horse and its interaction with otber animals and plant life in tbe range environment will be held. One guest speaker during this month is Dr. Robert M. Miller, a nationally known lecturer and author on equine behavior. The practicing veterinarian is best known for his workon cre- ating trust between humans and horses. The four- day pack experience with Dr. Miller is May 17- 20. Cost is $450, which includes food and camp- ing equipment. Additional wild mustang trips, dates and prices are May 10-12 (Mother's Day Special), offered for $250; May 24-27, $450; May 31-June 3, $350; June 7-10, $450. Other Frontier Pack Train summer trips offer golden trout fly fishing, horse.drives, natural his- tory trips, backpacker specials and deer hunting base camp trips. The pack station's owners, Dave & Kent Dohnel have over 30 combined years of experience packing in the Sierra and personally attend to the safety and hospitality of each trip. Riders of all abilities, beginner to expert, will be matched with appropriate, well-mannered horses. Reservations for all trips must be final- A "l  IPt ized 30 days in advance. Interested vacation UifllOOr ISrlelS planners can call Dave Dohnel at (619)873-7971.'
