The final vote count in the Powder Magazine Ski Town Throwdown was 5

Revelstoke falls to Eaglecrest in Ski Town Throwdown quarter-finals

Eaglecrest, Alaska, defeats Revelstoke 5,609-5,536 in quarter-finals of Ski Town Throwdown.

Revelstoke is out of the Powder Magazine Ski Town Throwdown, falling in an epic battle to the underdog Eaglecrest Ski Area near Juneau, Alaska.

Eaglecrest was victorious in the quarterfinal battle 5,609–5,536, in a two-day voting war that came down to the final hours.

For much of the two days, Eaglecrest appeared to be coasting to a comfortable win as it held about a 300 vote lead that the number-one seed Revelstoke seemed unable to surmount.

However, as the clock got closer to midnight on Thursday, Revelstoke mounted a surge and took the lead. With momentum seemingly on Revelstoke’s side, Eaglecrest supporters got online and pushed their resort back into the lead.

They wound up with a 73 vote win and victory in the Great White North division.

Eaglecrest is the Cinderalla team in the contest, having upset Whistler in the first round and now toppling Revelstoke to make the semi-finals.

The RMR PR team was gracious in defeat.

“What a run to the finish line that was!” they posted on Facebook Friday morning. “Amazing job everyone to keep the race as close as it was in the final hours!! Kudos to Eaglecrest Ski Area, taking the #greatwhitenorth title to the final 4 in Powder Magazine’s #skitownthrowdown….see you next year.”

Now we can get back to what really matters – preparing for opening day next Saturday, Nov. 30.
