Boyne Highlands Resort

Boyne Highlands is a mid-Western skiing icon, offering a wide variety of lifts and slopes, as well as full resort accommodations, numerous festivals and continuous night-life. Adventures include heading up to a mountain ski lodge for a picnic lunch, cross-country skiing, tubing, zip lines and more.

Night life often begins at the Zoo Bar with live bands when the slopes close. At the lodge, the Slopeside often hosts bands and sports tv. Resort visitors would well consider a visit to the spa or hot tubs.

A lesser known secret is Boyne Highlands often hosts the end-of-season snow boarding party, the last weekend after the season ends, with Spring skiing and amazing tricksters.

In summer, the Boyne Highlands resort offers golf, mountain biking, zip lines, horse back riding and a full spa.
