Kings of the Hill 2005

No. 1 in the East: Tremblant, Que.
No. 1 in the Midwest: Crystal Mountain, Mich.
Check out the Top 10 Lists for each category, the Top Midwest resorts and how your favorite resort scored in each category.

Lutsen, Minn.: Rank 1 West of Lake Michigan, 1998


Lutsen may be the best New England-like ski resort outside of New England. In fact, it's been dubbed the "Killington of the Midwest."

2003 Number 7 Resort in the Midwest: Lutsen Mountains, Minn.


Lutsen is huge, triple the size of most other Midwest resorts. With 390 acres of skiable terrain, it's probably the best "pure" ski resort in the Great Lakes region. Boasting the finest fall-line skiing between Denver and Albany, it's charming, distinctive and unique for the Midwest.

2002 Number 4 Resort in the Midwest: Shanty Creek, Mich.


With three villages, a variety of lodging, gourmet restaurants, two ski peaks, 46 ski runs, 11 lifts and its own transit system, Shanty Creek is more "full service" than most Midwest resorts.

2002 Number 7 Resort in the Midwest: Boyne Mountain, Mich.


Boyne Mountain was No. 1 in the Midwest for many years, but don't feel sorry for the legendary resort, which dropped to No. 7 this year.
