It was a close and heated battle, but at 10:58 a.m. (MST) the Gnome announced he was headed to Utah!!

Travelocity Gnome (gnome)

Of 285,482 votes, 142,709 (49.98%) of them went to Tahoe and 142,773 (50.01%) to Utah. Ski Utah wants to thank all of its fans who have tirelessly devoted their efforts to voting. There is no way we could have won this close competition without every single vote. We anticipate the gnome will arrive in Utah this Thursday evening for a whirlwind trip around the state. Looks like he might get some fresh snow during his stay as well. Where do you think the gnome should go on his Utah trip?
