- 2015 Federal Election
Fernie named in the top four ski resort towns - on to the semi finals!
Fernie is one of the top four ski towns in North America, according to Powder Magazine’s Ski Town Throwdown online competition.
After two days of voting, Fernie beat Jackson/Teton Valley, Wyoming, and will now move on to the semi finals against Bozeman, Montana.
In a close race, Fernie just beat the American town, home to the huge Jackson Hole resort, by 1,556 votes to 1,349.
The next battle against Bozeman, home of Big Sky resort, is set for December 17 and 18.
Fernie has had a huge support during the competition, and blew away two Vermont towns in the last round before Jackson/Teton Valley.
Only two BC ski towns remain in the competition — Fernie and Rossland/Nelson. Whistler lost in the first round, and Revelstoke was edged out by just 40 votes in its Round 2 face-off against Salt Lake.
