WIN a £500 voucher with DOWNHILL

To celebrate the release of DOWNHILL in cinemas from 28th February, we are partnering with the film to offer the chance to win £500 of Blacks vouchers.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell star in this biting dark comedy. Things go off-piste for a married couple on a family vacation in the Alps. An avalanche leads to some drastic decisions with uncomfortable consequences. 

We are delighted to partner with the film, especially as here at Blacks we agree that adventure helps you find out who you really are. A voucher for £500 will help you gear up and avert your own outdoors disaster.

To enter just find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and answer an all-important question:

What’s the one thing that YOU would want to save in an avalanche?


Downhill opens in cinemas nationwide from Friday 28th February.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
