by Kirsten Armleder

The polls are open and it’s time to cast your votes in the 4th annual SledTown ShowDown. You can head over to the main contest page or vote by provincial bracket:

Round 1 runs October 10 to 22, 2017.

New to the contest? This is how it works: we start with 16 destinations from each Western province in Canada. Each week, our readers vote for their favourites and the destinations get whittled down. By the sixth week or Round 4, we’ll have our provincial winners, which will go head-to-head until only one town remains to be crowned the 2018 SledTown ShowDown Champion of Western Canada.

Past winners include:

What does the winner get? A shiny SledTown trophy, bragging rights, feature articles and advertising in SnoRiders magazine. Plus, it is a chance to raise positive awareness of snowmobiling and to recognize local clubs for all their hard work.

Social media plays a big role in this contest so be sure to hit “share” after you vote to let your friends know about the contest. You can also follow SnoRiders on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for quick updates during the contest. Feel free to tag us in photos and use the #sledtownshowdown to promote your favourite town.
