Park Enhancements

This season, a new Pistenbully ParkPro will be shaping Boyne Highlands Resort’s four terrain parks. The ParkPro is precisely tailored to the needs of park builders in allowing for exceptional experiences for skiers and riders. The resort is also planning a major modification to its halfpipe, the only halfpipe in Michigan and one of just three in the Midwest, which will enable it to open earlier in the season. The MacGully Terrain Park will become the signature park this season. Challenger will offer medium park progression, and Funland will see more features and increased acreage as the smaller, progression park.
