HARBOR SPRINGS: Michigan’s largest ski resort, Boyne Highlands, is offering new experiences for the 2016/17 winter season including nighttime cross country skiing and snowshoe dinners, as well as an expanded Tubing Park, Rossignol snowboard demos, and a new program director for the resort’s children ski instruction and coaching program.
On The Trails and Slopes
Enjoy solitude on the trails with the glow of oil lanterns and moonlight to illuminate your path along a mile-long cross country ski trail lit each Friday and Saturday evening. Trail passes are $10 after 4 p.m., and free for ages eight and under. The Tyler’s Tango glade, which has been expanded to triple its original size, has also added an additional access point located skiers right of Amy’s chairlift. Ten Boyne Low-E fan guns are being relocated to key tower positions maximizing snowmaking efficiencies.
Guests can delight in three new enchanted snowshoe expeditions this winter, each culminating with a gourmet three-course dinner. The events are scheduled for Jan. 6, 2017; Feb. 3, 2017; and March 3, 2017. For complete details, including menus, visit boynehighlands.com.
Boyne Highlands’ Tubing Park is being expanding with additional lanes this winter and also being moved closer to the Camelot lift. Reconfiguring the park will allow this popular attraction to open earlier in the season. The Tubing Park is open to adults and children ages five and above, with one-hour, two-hour and all day tickets available.
New Rossignol Demos
Daily snowboard demos are available for the first time this winter through Boyne Country Sports at Boyne Highlands. Demos allow those interested in a new equipment purchase the opportunity to try before you buy. Boyne Highlands also offers a full line of skis to demo including those from Rossignol, Volkl, Dynastar, and Blizzard.
New Program Director for Boyne Flyers and Team Elite
