Rossland/Nelson onto next round in Ski Town Throw Down

In a two day competition to collect the most Facebook votes, the local hills beat Maine's Sugaloaf ski hill 1,309 to 1,028.

Rossland/Nelson are part of Powder magazine's contest to find the best ski town in North America.

Rossland/Nelson made it past the first round of voting in Powder magazine’s online contest to find the best ski town in North America.

In a two day competition to collect the most Facebook votes, the local hills beat Maine’s Sugaloaf ski hill 1,309 to 1,028.

Voters favouring Rossland/Nelson offered up many reasons for their choice in the comment section.

Peggy Aitken of Nelson wrote, “The best powder and new tracks every run, all 20 minutes from out the door to on the hill!”

Dan Soukeroff of Nelson added, “Whitewater has great snow and Red has the best lift attendants and customer service.”

Peter Fullerton of Rossland said, “They call us ‘Steep and Deep’ for a reason…”

Rossland/Nelson will take on either Whitefish or Whistler on November 28-29.
