With an early opening day on Saturday, some great snow for the start of the season, we cap it off with winning Powder Magazine's ski town throwdown!
The magazine writes: "Congratulations to Steamboat, Colorado, for taking the win in the Ski Town Throwdown IV. With more than 45,000 votes in the final round, Steamboat, the 8-seed out of the Rocky Mountain West, narrowly beat Red Mountain, in British Columbia, the 3-seed out of the Great White North, for the championship. During the past month of competition, the Colorado ski town, set to open Thanksgiving Day, beat out a number of worthy opponents; first toppling last year’s winner, Crested Butte; followed by Sun Valley, Idaho, in the Sweet 16; Jackson, Wyoming in the ELite 8; and the top qualifier from the East, Mount Bohemia, Michigan, in the Final Four.
“Steamboat is known as Ski Town, USA, so we love the Ski Town Throwdown and are really excited to take home the win this year,” said Steamboat spokesperson Nicole Miller. “Our staff, locals and fans get involved in voting for Steamboat and promoting Throwdown every year. We owe this win to them.”
Tune your skis and boards, stretch your legs and prepare for fun!
