Ladies and gentlemen, the best Internet contest in skiing ever known to humanity is back for its fourth year. The Ski Town Throwdown returns with 32 finalists divided into four regions across the country: the Far West, Great White North, Rocky Mountain West, and Big East. We used a complicated and inexplicable math equation known as P5 (P-Pentupled), which factors vertical, snowfall, lift ticket price, sex ratios, and vote totals from previous Ski Town Throwdowns to seed each region. Extra style points were awarded to resorts with high populations of skiers wearing jeans. Each round will be decided by a popular vote.
