Revelstoke Mountain Resort is neck-and-neck with Whitewater in the second round of Powder Magazine‘s Ski Town Throwdown.

The contest, in it’s second year, pits different ski resorts against each other in an online voting contest to determine North America’s top ski resort.

Whitewater teamed with Red Mountain to win the last year’s inaugural edition of the Ski Town Throwdown. Last year, Nelson’s mayor John Dooley went door-to-door to solicit votes for their resort.

This year, Revelstoke entered the competition ranked in first place. It defeated Cypress Mountain in round one.

As of this posting at 11:30 a.m., Revelstoke was up 471–457.

Voting runs on Facebook until 11 p.m. tonight, Oct. 31. Click here to cast your vote.
