The snow may be disappearing fast on Northern Michigan’s ski slopes, but the folks at Boyne are enticing winter sports enthusiasts to keep those skis and snowboards out just a little while longer.  How?  A not-to-be-missed offer to ski the rest of the 2009-2010 season for free with the purchase of a 2010-2011 Boyne Pass—good at Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs and Boyne Mountain in Boyne Falls.

The passes can be purchased in a three-payment plan, and are good for summer rides up the chairlift—a must for scenic views, steep hikes and stellar mountain biking—as well as the traditional cadre of bonuses like lodging, retail, and Avalanche Bay water park discounts.

Passes are good for Boyne’s 114 combined runs, seven terrain parks, two half-pipes, one super-pipe and skier and boarder cross courses.  For more information, visit
