Honouring ski resorts across North America, Liftopia — the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and mountain activities — announced the 2017-18 Best in Snow Awards.. The awards bring uber-local, relevant and must-know intel to beginning skiers as well as ski and snowboard aficionados. Unlike other ski awards, the Best in Snow Awards is the only ranking that calculates survey feedback from thousands of skiers and snowboarders and incorporates the largest dataset in the industry to determine the ski areas consumers are most passionate about. Winners are ranked and divided among seven categories for regions including the Northeast, West Coast, High West, Southeast and Midwest.

Stony Mountain Ski Area is thrilled to have been awarded a Best in Snow Award for Best Value.  “Liftopia surveyed our customers and noted how passionate they are about our ski area and services and they appreciate the value they get, ” said Camryn Dewar co-owner and snowschool director “It is a great accolade as we celebrate our 50th Season.”

“Skiers are by nature adventurous and today’s travelers are looking for the new, the interesting, the unknown areas to vacation. By measuring customers passion for their favorite areas, The Best in Snow Awards give consumers an opportunity to see which ski areas may become their next new favourite. Our method ensures a level playing field for ski areas of all sizes and brings skiers lesser known ski areas in addition to the larger ones we already know and love,” said Evan Reece, co-founder and CEO of Liftopia.
