We have a group of guys who take an annual trip skiing for over a decade now. Boyne Highlands, Boyne Mountain and Nubs Nob are the only places in Michigan we'll stay anymore. Alpine Village 4-bedroom condos in the Highlands are big, roomy, and can accommodate a large group or a couple of families sharing. Most owners have decked out the condos to pack in the guests. Purchase the ski package and you can get discounted lift tickets plus hot buffet breakfast in the lodge. Our condo was missing a DVD player and the front desk delivered one to our door.
However, not all Alpine Condos are an easy ski-in/ski-out so beware. Ask for a condo south of the parking lot along Lois Lane, not North Peak Pass. Trust me, you do not want to ski over the parking lot to get to your condo, especially after night skiing ends at 9:00pm.
