SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Participants have one more hour to decide if the Travelocity Roaming Gnome should visit Tahoe or Utah this winter.

The gnome began hosting a voting contest last week on his Facebook page and asks fans to choose between Utah and Tahoe. Voting ends today at 9 a.m.

The winning destination will be revealed today, and the Roaming Gnome will immediately travel to that location to visit friends and locals, pose for pictures and participate in some of the most popular activities and happenings the area has to offer, showing followers what they could also experience on their own ski adventure.

Utah v. Lake Tahoe is the second pair of rival ski destinations. The first contest was between Whistler, Canada and Banff, Canada. Banff won.
