PITTSBURGH, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --DICK'S Sporting Goods(NYSE: DKS),
the largest U.S. based full-line sporting goods retailer, today announced the
details of its first-ever "Get Winter Ready" consumer promotion.

As part of the program's sweepstakes, DICK'S has partnered with The North Face
and Columbia Sportswear to give away two one-of-kind prize packages – one that
includes a chance to join professional skier Tom Wallisch at the Winter X
Games in Aspen, Colo., and the other a VIP experience at the 2013 FIS
Freestyle Ski World Cup in Park City, Utah. Additionally, DICK'S is offering
five exclusive "Adventures of a Lifetime" packages for purchase that include
unique gifts and one-of-a-kind experiences sponsored by Burton/MINI Cooper,
KOPPEN, Marmot, Mountain Hardwear and Spyder/Audi.

From now through Dec. 1, consumers can enter for a chance to win one of the
prize packages by visiting www.GetWinterReady.com and competing in an
interactive online game. Participants are transported online to a cabin in the
mountainswhere four young adventure seekers are waking up. Through the eyes
of a character, users pan the room to find hidden clothing and other items to
prepare for the adventure of the day. The faster the adventure is completed,
the greater the number of entries users earn towards the chance of winning one
of the two sweepstakes packages.

"We are thrilled to partner with this great lineup of top outdoor brands to
offer our customers these amazing opportunities to win or purchase an
'Adventure of a Lifetime' this winter," said Lauren Hobart, Chief Marketing
