Tennille Gibson I’m thinking which which, noggin pub, and Duffy’s look pretty decent

Go Petoskey

Mira Miroslava all the more reason to go up north

Seems several have 3 course meals but a beverage is counting as one of the courses.. Should all be 1 appetizer, one main course and one desert..

Yummmmmm 😊

Why aren't you open tomorrow?

Why aren't the lifts opening earlier than noon? Football starts at 1!

Disappointed about the 6-1. I had taken the day off to bring the kids.

Thank You Boyne for making the difficult business decision to stay closed a bit longer to build your base and ultimately improve the safety of the hill and your potential to stay open during the busy holiday time. What a tough spot to be in. Thanks for doing your best!

You should pick another date in the new year. We look forward to this event each year. It would be a shame to cancel it completely.

Or you could move it to January? Why cancel the whole thing... That's stupid

Keep making snow or we will have to cancel our vacation! 🙁

Your website still shows the 6 for 1 is a go. I assume your facebook page has the correct info?

Patience 😍

So jealous!!! I wanna 🎿 ski

Good call. Pile it up.

Woohoo! See you tomorrow!

Sunday meet up? Amber Johnston
