Rossland/Nelson take top spot for North American ski towns

Rossland, along with Nelson, were chosen by way of Facebook vote, as the top ski town in North America.

Rossland, along with Nelson, were chosen by way of Facebook vote, as the top ski town in North America.

The contest, put on by Powder Magazine pitted 32 towns and areas against each other in a March Madness style bracket.

Then Facebook users were let loose to vote on their favorite ski town.

The Rossland/Nelson combo were the only representative of the West Kootenay, and by the final round, they were representing all of Canada in Powder Magazine’s Ski Town Throwdown competition.

The Red Mountain/Whitewater duo ousted Sugarloaf, Maine, Whitefish, Montana and Crested Butte, Colorado and Sandpoint, Idaho, and outlasted  the likes of Whistler and Fernie.

Rossland/Nelson finally took down Bozeman, Montana and it’s three nearby resorts of Bridger Bowl, Moonlight Basin and Big Sky Resort.

It was also slight consolation for Fernie, which lost in the final four to Bozeman.

The results are up on both Powder’s Facebook page and at www.powdermag.com.
