Vote Fernie as best ski town in North America

Fernie is entering round two in the Powder Magazine Ski Town Throwdown competition next week, after beating Mammoth in the first round.

The online competition will name the best ski town in North America based on a series of online votes that pit one ski town against another.

In Round 1, Fernie smashed Mammoth in California, picking up 1,188 votes compared to 571.

Fernie now advances to the next round against Mad River Glen and Sugarbush in Vermont, pitting Canada’s west against America’s east. In the first round, Mad River Glen and Sugarbush defeated Ogden in Utah.

The competition that started with 32 ski hills is down to 16 battling for the title.
