We’re down to the Elite 8 in the 2019 SledTown ShowDown contest. The provincial finals will determine who wears the crown of provincial supremacy in 2019. Which SledTown is the best in each western province? You decide!

Here are a few of the highlights from Round 3:

  • B.C.’s showdown is set to be a doozy. Both Sicamous and Tumbler Ridge each racked up north of 2,200 votes! This is going to be a tight race until the final day.
  • Alberta’s SledTowns of Fox Creek and Edson ran away with their Round 3 victories, racking up over 70% of the votes in each of their respective battles. Round 4 promises to be a closely contested contest.
  • In two more landslide victories, Carrot River/Arborfield and Hudson Bay tallied over 65% of the votes in their Round 3 matchups. Which community will be crowned king of all Saskatchewan? It’ll likely be a nailbiter throughout.
  • Both of Manitoba’s Round 3 results were seesaw encounters that saw record-breaking numbers. Thompson edged Lac du Bonnet 2,438 votes to 2,163. The duel between Powerview-Pine Falls and Flin Flon garnered an unprecedented total of over 8,000 votes! Flin Flon emerged victorious, securing 52%. Can Round 4 possibly surpass these numbers?

The polls are open and it’s time to cast your votes in the 5th annual SledTown ShowDown. You can head over to the main contest page or vote by provincial bracket once a day until the current round closes:
