Vote for Nelson as top ski town

The USA Today poll runs until Nov. 20

Nelson is one of 20 communities being considered as the best North American ski town in a USA Today poll.

The top-10 towns can be voted for online at www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-ski-town/. Voting ends at 9 a.m. on Nov. 20, with the results announced on Nov. 24.

Nelson is described in the pool as a place where, “rugged adventurers rub elbows with hippies and bohemians in its excellent cafes, bars and galleries centred around pedestrian-friendly Baker Street.”

Revelstoke and Whistler are the only other Canadian communities listed in the vote.
