Mount Washington Alpine Resort is through to the Final Four in Powder Magazine’s 2014 Ski Town Throwdown.
It was close voting in the Elite Eight round on Nov. 3-4, with “Washy” winning 2,787 to 2,536 over Red Mountain (Rossland).
But there is no time to celebrate, as voting in the next round (Nov. 5-6) got underway Wednesday and wraps up at 5 p.m. today. “We are the only Canadian resort left in the (32-resort) competition,” an elated Brent Curtain said after the votes had been tallied on Tuesday.
The Mount Washington spokesperson noted voter turnout was lower than previous rounds due to a new login voting procedure. “Regardless, we still had amazing support from the Comox Valley and had the highest voter turnout of all the ski communities in the Elite Eight,” Curtain said.
