At Boyne Highlands Resort and Boyne Mountain Resort, Michigan’s two largest ski areas with a combined 850 skiable acres, 115 trails and 12 terrain parks, the 2012-13 season boasts numerous improvements including new groomers and snow guns, an extensive hotel renovation, a fleet of cutting-edge rental skis and terrain park enhancements. The Midwest’s best snow is not just a pledge, it’s a guarantee. This season, Boyne Mountain adds another 20 Boyne Low-E snow guns to its snowmaking arsenal. The Low-E guns feature proprietary technology exclusive to Boyne Resorts that maximizes snow output, especially at marginal temperatures, with less compressed air. The snow guns create a lighter, more natural snow and are up to 40% more efficient than standard models. Boyne Mountain’s Clock Tower Lodge, situated at the base of the slopes with convenient ski-in/ski-out accommodations, has recently undergone an extensive renovation. The modernization includes a complete remodel of the hotel rooms and suites including new lighting, décor and fixtures throughout, as well as fresh paint, and redesigned and upgraded bathrooms. The new décor carries out and accentuates the resort’s Swiss-Austrian theme. Boyne Mountain has purchased 400 new pairs of Head Link skis to be available for guest use from equipment rental. The progressive skis feature MultiRadius and MultiCamber construction and are shaped with an early rise in tip and tail making it easier for skiers to initiate and hold through turns. Boyne Mountain is moving all terrain park features from North Boyne and expanding the Meadows area to become the largest park at the resort. Additional lighting is being added to the Meadows Park and new features are expected to enhance the riding within all four of the resort’s terrain parks. Boyne Mountain also intends to use the additional Boyne Low-E snow guns to deliver the fire power needed to open the Meadows Park as early in the season as possible.
