Get your vote in for Rossland ski magazine contest

Time is running out to vote for Rossland in a Powder magazine contest.

Time is running out to vote for Rossland in a Powder magazine contest. The contest is the Ski Town Throwdown, a March Madness bracket-style tournament where Powder Facebook followers vote on their favorite places to ski. The vote goes until today (Nov. 1) at midnight for the 1-seed Rossland/Nelson versus 8-seed Sugarloaf. The winner advances to the Sweet 16.

With the Red Mountain expansion underway, the extra terrain could add some extra momentum for Rossland and Nelson.

“I think quintessentially Rossland is one of the best ski towns in Canada if not North America,” said Rossland Chamber of Commerce’s Renee Clark, told the Trail Times earlier this week.

“The whole expansion thing is creating a bit of a buzz. I’m getting more and more phone calls on my end about people wanting to move here, people wanting to open business in our area, so anything that happens up at Red is a great thing for our community and area.”

If Rossland/Nelson goes on (votes are close at press time), it will face Whitefish, Mt. or Whistler, B.C. in the round of 16.

The winner of the throwdown will be decided after Dec. 20. To vote, go to facebook.com/powdermagazine.
