Voting opened today for Nelson’s third round of competition in the Ski Town Throwdown.

Organized by Powder magazine, the throwdown pits two ski towns against each other in a challenge to collect the most votes on Facebook in a two day period. The ski town with the most votes moves onto the next round, bringing it one step closer to being named the best ski town in North America.

In Round 1, Rossland/Nelson (our two local ski hills have been grouped together for the purpose of the competition) beat Maine’s Sugaloaf ski hill 1,309 to 1,028.

Then, in Round 2, the local hills outpaced Montana’s Whitefish mountain 3,491 to 3,176.

Rossland/Nelson is now up against Colorodo’s Crested Butte. A win in this round would advance the local hills into the semi-finals, which take place on December 17 and 18.

Besides Rossland/Nelson, the only other BC hill still in the competition is Fernie. Round 3 voting for Fernie will also open Wednesday.

To cast your ballot for your favourite ski town, go to facebook.com/powdermag when voting opens and click “Rossland/Nelson v. Crested Butte” in the page banner.

Voting will only open for two days — Wednesday and Thursday — and you can only vote once per IP address, per 24 hour period (but if you get your first vote in early, you might be able to squeeze in a second one).
