Rossland/Red Mountain was eliminated from the Ski Town Throwdown after three rounds.

Rossland bumped out of Ski Town Throwdown

Rossland made it to Round 3 before Eaglecrest Ski Area in Alaska knocked them from the competition.

Rossland was eliminated from Powder Magazine‘s Ski Town Throwdown after its third round in the online voting competition.

Nelson and Rossland were paired together in last year’s contest when the duo won every round and earned the title of Best Ski Town in North America.

This year the defending champions were split apart and more towns were added to the competition.

Nelson was defeated in Round 2 by Revelstoke, while Rossland made it to Round 3 before Eaglecrest Ski Area in Alaska knocked them from the competition.

Voting for Round 4 is now open, with Revelstoke — the only Canadian ski hill left in the competition — taking on Eaglecrest. The winner will become the champion of the “Great White North” division and go on to compete in semi-finals and possibly finals.
