PeacePads™ Now Available for Purchase at Crystal Mountain


CrystalMountain2Just steps away from the snow-covered slopes, LiveKühn® PeacePads™ have an amazing new view. Their display area on the shop wall faces a window to the sparkling midday snow, the sunset over the mountain, and the nights under the lights. Skiers speed down a racecourse, snowboarders catch air in the terrain park. A child completes the first run ever down the mountain with a giant smile, and a family continues their snowy mountain tradition. Just steps away, a beautifully lit outdoor ice rink welcomes young and old. The window opposite to the display of PeacePads is a window to a world of snow and ice.

Consistently rated one of the top resorts in the region for its snow and a destination for families (Best Terrain in the Midwest-OnTheSnow, Best Ski Resort-Michigan Travel and Vacation Magazine, Best Spa for Ski & Snow-Spafinder Readers' Choice Awards), Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, Mich., is the place where many first experience the joy of the snow or ice – a joy that lasts a lifetime. LiveKühn is proud to now have our HIPeace™ and TailbonePeace™ pads available for purchase in the Mountain Sports shop. We can't wait to be a part of the discovery of their sport and journey of aspiring athletes, encouraging them to "Be Bold™" in their sport and life.

Congrats to LiveKühn Contest Winner Katrina Messner


LiveKühn congratulates Katrina Messner, the winner of our "Are You Kühn?" Contest. Katrina's photo received the most likes on the LiveKühn Facebook page, so she will receive a free set of our revolutionary PeacePads™!

Katrina's mother, Sherry Messner, wrote this in her submission of Katrina's photo: "This is my daughter Katrina Messner, with her skating coach, getting ready to skate in her very first ice skating show. It was 20 degrees outside and she only had been skating for 3 months. She is very shy, but she faced her fears and went out there and skated her first program ever in front of all those people. She is living and skating BOLD!"

Congratulations, Katrina!
