THOMPSONVILLE, MI - OnTheSnow, the most visited ski and snowboard-related website has recently awarded Crystal Mountain its 2013 Visitors' Choice Award for Best Terrain in the Midwest. The awards are considered to be the most comprehensive user-generated ski resort awards in the world.

Awards are presented for both overall and regional winners. By receiving this award, Crystal Mountain had the highest average score in its category, as voted on by visitors to OnTheSnow.com.

"We are extremely excited to receive this award," said Crystal Mountain's Chris MacInnes. "Our focus has always been to provide the best experience to our guests, both on the hill and off.
