Visitors to OnTheSnow.com have chosen Peek‘n Peak in Western New York as their "Favorite Family-Friendly Resort" in the Northeast. The data period for voting was January 2011 when a Nielsen audit showed 3.4 million unique browsers logged in to the world's most visited Web platform.

The ski resort with the top average score (on a scale of 1 to 5) in each category, and a minimum number of entries, receives the award. Visitors then ranked them in five categories: Overall Favorite, Best Nightlife, Most Family-Friendly, Best Downhill Terrain, and Best Terrain Park.

"Peek'n Peak is a worthwhile destination, especially for families. My family has been coming here for years. I love watching my children here and one day would like to see my grandchildren here."
Another wrote: "We have been to ski resorts on the west coast and can honestly say that Peek‘n Peak is a much better experience. I would recommend it to anyone with children."
