Boyne Resorts Ready for Snow Season

from the Boyne website and other sources

Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands winter resorts are celebrating 60 years of providing snow fun to Michigan. Located in the Petoskey Bay area, Boyne has been an innovative force in the ski industry.

Boyne was a pioneer site for the making of artificial snow (Boyne Snowmaker patented 1974), and this year they continue that tradition with the introduction of Boyne Low E Fan Guns. These snow guns will make more snow of a higher quality with lower moisture content, while using less energy.

The Meadows Chairlift has been replaced with a higher speed, fixed grip, conveyor load lift. This lift not only travels faster than the original, it’s easier to load thanks to a conveyor belt system giving riders a seamless transition from snow to seat. This is the only lift of its kind in Michigan.

At Boyne Mountain the Glade Ski/Ride Run has been expanded. At the Highlands there will be lighting on over two miles of snowshoe trail on Fridays, Saturdays, and holidays. Ski/Ride Terrain there has been expanded as well.
