Truckee, Calif. (November 7, 2012) – The great debate for best ski town in North America will be taken to Facebook by POWDER Magazine this ski season with their inaugural Ski Town Throwdown. The Town of Truckee sent out a release today asking residents and devoted winter visitors to take the opportunity to cast their votes and bring the much-deserved honor of best ski town to beloved Truckee, Calif.
