RULES:    You may vote once per IP Address/WiFi Connection (I.E. You can vote once at home, work, and on your Phone if it is not connected to the WiFi of a location used … sorry guys, only way we can keep voting fair for all the businesses nominated). You may vote for as many nominees in each category as you like. To access individual categories under each heading, use the arrows at the top of the voting box.

HOW WE PICK THEM: Nominees are selected on the basis of public nominations and the experiences of Live the SnoCo Life’s nominee board. To be included as an official nominee, at least one person on the Live the SnoCo Life nominee board must have visited the location/tried the product at least one and be able to verify quality and fitness for the category.
