The final round — Eaglecrest vs Crested Butte

Skiers and boarders line up for a ride on Porcupine chairlift on Saturday. Only the beginning area opened this weekend. The rest of the mountain needs more snow.

Juneau’s Eaglecrest is poised to be the most popular ski area in North America – at least according to the thousands of people who have voted in Powder Magazine’s Ski Town Throwdown.

Now the small city-owned area is up against the destination resort of Crested Butte, Colorado.  This is the final round in the contest, which started in October.

Beginning today, you can vote once every 24 hours through Friday on Powder Magazine’s Facebook page.  Voting ends at 4 p.m. Alaska time on Friday.
