Vote for Mount Washington in Ski Town Throwdown

Islanders will have 24 hours on Oct. 29 to vote for local resort through Facebook

Vote for Washy on Oct. 29!

Mount Washington Alpine Resort is part of Powder Magazine’s 2014 Ski Town Throwdown this season and the public plays a huge part in the competition. “The Throwdown is a huge social media event which places us in a tournament style competition with other mountains/ski towns across North America,” explains Mount Washington spokesperson Brent Curtain.

“In the first round, we’re up against Kicking Horse Resort in Golden, B.C. In a nutshell, we need Islanders to vote for us through the Powder Magazine Facebook site on Oct. 29.

“Voting in the first round lasts for 24 hours so we’re trying to solicit as many votes as possible to beat the number of votes achieved by Kicking Horse in that time period. If we defeat Kicking Horse and move on to round two, we will likely meet Whistler/Blackcomb,” Curtain said.

“This competition doesn’t just pit mountain against mountain, it pits community against community. We’re talking Vancouver Island vs. Golden, B.C.! This event draws a great deal of exposure to the communities that advance….and the entire Island is our community.”

Voting is done through Facebook and voters must like the Powder Magazine page at facebook.com/powdermag and vote through that site on Oct. 29. “First round voting lasts for 24 hours only, so vote for Mount Washington on the 29th!” Curtain said.
