Whitewater Resort is one of the competitors in Powder Magazine's third annual Ski Town Throwdown.

Whitewater battling Mount Washington for Ski Town Throwdown

Currently Nelson trails Vancouver Island resort while Red Mountain maintains a lead over Alaska's Eaglecrest.

Both Whitewater Ski resort and Red Mountain are competing in this year’s third annual Ski Town Throwdown competition, and are currently facing off against Mount Washington on Vancouver Island and Eaglecrest in Alaska for the honour of being named the top ski spot.

As of Monday afternoon, Whitewater was falling behind by approximately 2,000 votes, while Red Mountain maintained a lead of approximately 300 votes over Alaska’s Eaglecrest resort, with both of them nearing 11,000. Voting began on Monday morning.

Earlier in the competition, Whitewater outlasted Girdwood, Alaska while Red Mountain ousted Whistler/Blackcomb.

Last year Whitewater was eliminated in the second round of the contest by only 20 votes. Previously Whitewater and Red Mountain competed together, winning the grand prize in 2012.

Every year Powder Magazine seeds the top 28 places to ski. They take into consideration snowfall, lift ticket prices, skier visits, night skiing acreage and vote totals from previous competitions, among other things.
