“Nice Ski Area!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a nice alternative to going out West to ski. The runs are well groomed and the staff is very friendly. There is a nice variety of Green, Blue, and Black runs.

“Just o.k.”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Like the title says, "just o.k.". This was our 5th visit to Boyne Mountain in the past 8 years. Nothing seems to improve from year to year. The best part of the resort is the outdoor pool and hot tub at the clock tower.
The runs were in fair shape at best. We went on a Wednesday and there was really no one there from 10:00 until 3:00 p.m., the runs looked like they had been ran over by a train all day. Where were the groomers? Most likely, the Boyne resorts focus on the weekend money. I guess the weekday money is not worth the effort.
The staff were very friendly and the food was good.

“Too pricy, bad attitudes”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Priced like they are in Colorado, but these are Michigan hills. Employees almost seem upset that you are there -- like you are bothering them. Long lines everywhere. Good hills for Michigan, but bad most everything else.

“One of the two best choices in lower Michigan”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Let's face it, ski resorts come with some ups and downs (pun intended) but the main thing to consider is the skiing. Michigan is not really endowed with mountains but we have some decent hill and Boyne Mountain is almost as good as it gets. Since it's only about 500' vertical getting to the top as fast as possible becomes important to how much actual skiing you are going to have. Boyne has a high speed 6 person express chair and 5 person hybrid express chair along with many standard chairs to get you to the top. Even on busy weekends lift lines are pretty short. Snow conditions are usually pretty good since they have great snow making capability and set in the middle of a lake effect snow belt from Lake Michigan. Shop for deals on any day except Saturday which is pretty much full rate. 10 gallons or more of fuel at Shell stations gets you a two for one coupon.
