Voting in the Elite 8 Ski Town Throwdown competition ended at 11 p.m. Thursday and Juneau’s Eaglecrest Ski Area beat Revelstoke Mountain Resort by 73 votes.

Eaglecrest had 5,609 votes and Revelstoke had 5,536 votes.

Eaglecrest is now the Great White North champion and goes on to the Final Four.

Eaglecrest on Tuesday beat Red Mountain Ski Resort by more than 200 votes in the Sweet 16 round of Powder Magazine contest.  In the first two rounds, Eaglecrest knocked out two other large British Columbia ski resorts, Whistler/Blackcomb and Mt. Washington.

Eaglecrest Marketing Director Jeffra Clough says the Powder Magazine contest has two more rounds.

“Voting for the Final 4 round will be December 2nd and 3rd and Eaglecrest will be up against the Big East champion, which will be either Mt. Bohemia, Michigan, or Mad River Glen, Vermont,” Clough says.
