Only two days left in Ski Town Throwdown

The polls are still open in the Ski Town Throwdown contest between Eaglecrest and Crested Butte Mountain Resort.

Juneau’s small city-owned ski area has lagged behind the large Colorado resort most of the week, but you can vote once every 24 hours until 4 p.m. Alaska time on Friday.

The Powder Magazine contest started with 64 North American areas in four geographic regions.

Managing Editor John Davies describes the final round as a “dog fight.”

“Both Crested Butte and Eaglecrest have shown that they’re in this to win it,” he says. “My bet is that it’s going to come down to the wire.  I think we’re going to be glued to the Facebook ticker, watching the votes come in until late Friday night, when this thing ends.”

And that’s how you vote – on the Powder Magazine Facebook page.
