Ski Town Throwdown – Fernie versus North America

Fernie is in the running to be named the best ski town in North America.

Fernie is in the running to be named the best ski town in North America. Powder Magazine is holding their first ever Ski Town Throwdown and Fernie made the cut to compete against 15 other locations to claim the title.

Powder will unveil a 16 town bracket in their November issue, which will eventually give readers the chance to determine the best ski town in North America. The matchups will pit locations against one another on Facebook over a two day period. The ski town that collects the most fan votes will win the matchup and move forward in the bracket.

“We have so much spirit in Fernie and so much powder pride. Let’s share that passion for powder and let’s kick those people back down in this throwdown, because the glory is on the line,” remarked, Mott Mosteller, ski blogger Powder Matt and longtime Fernie skier. “I’m so proud of the power of this community. Every year I go through and do different things with the community, and reflecting on the fiftieth [anniversary] last year, and all the great things, and meeting all the wonderful people that were part of that event. I think this is a perfect example, because we have so many people that we can get fired up and get on this thing, and let’s do it!”

The bracket contest will begin on October 29 and run until December 21. Fernie’s first round opponent is Mammoth, California taking place on November 14 through 16. The winner will move on to face the winner of Ogden versus Mad River Glen on November 28, with regional finals, semifinals, and the final matchup happening in December.
