A 32-year-old Whitefish man is in the running to be named the "Ultimate Ski Bum," a title that comes with a prize package worth $30,000.

Craig Moore recently became one of 10 finalists for the title that's being sponsored by the Kootenay Rockies tourism board in British Columbia.

Moore has skied at least one day every month for the last four years and beat out about 300 other wanna-be ski bums through online voting.

His next step is to submit a 90-second video showing him at his ski-bum best and why he deserves the title. A winner will be announced Dec. 14.

The winner receives a pack of eight season passes to ski areas in British Columbia, along with helicopter trips, lodging, gas and a rental car for three months.
