Some comments on the contest page:
This is difficult because I love Bellingham — it’s where I went to college, but it’s NOT a ski town! That’s why I voted for the BOAT!

Life in the boat is nothing less than amazing! The powder is epic, the terrain is like no other resort and the lift lines are short. Plus, the town is a blast! The people are friendly and the night life is a blast.
— Heather Biewick
Steamboat; Come for the Skiing and stay for the people.
— Ron Contarino
Thanks, Ron. We appreciate it.
