The Best of Both Seasons

NOTE: April’s been fooling us – with 48″ of unseasonable snow this month, the golf courses just aren’t quite ready for play.

With that being the case – we’re moving the Hemlock Open to May 5. If you registered and can no longer participate, please contact Dan Turcott at 231-439-4016.

<>

The Hemlock Open is a two person team competition. It consists of two runs of slalom in a dual format on North Boyne in the morning. In the afternoon, enjoy a two man scramble. Each team member’s best run is added together with their team golf score to determine the total team score.

Ski and Golf – In The Same Day

If you aren’t quite ready to put your race skis away but you have thought about dusting off the clubs, then the Hemlock Open is for you.

Comments Off on Boyne Mountain – Dirty Dog Dash – June 2, 2018


Getting your butt kicked never felt so good!

The 9th annual Dirty Dog Dash will leave you feeling dirty, tired, and fulfilled. The race route will cover 5 km of mountainous terrain with a bunch of obstacles thrown in along the way.  We’ll have live music to keep the party rolling long after the leftover mud from your personal conquest has dried.

In addition to the prizes awarded to the top finishers in each division, we’ll crown winners for best costumes (Goofiest Dogs), team spirit (Spirit of the Dog), the “Dirtiest Dog,” and more!

  • Saturday, June 2, 2018
  • Participants who complete the challenge will receive a complimentary beer (21+), an event t-shirt, and survivor dog tag

It’s Time to Get Down and Dirty!

The competition is tough – so get ready to race hard, then party harder! We’ll be throwing in a huge bash after the race, so you’ll leave with memories that will last a lifetime, and sore muscles that should only last a day or two. Here’s how it’ll go down:

Friday

  • 6 – 9:30pm: On site registration, bib pick up, waiver signing – Snowflake Lounge

Saturday

  • 8:30 – 10:15am: On site registration, bib pick up, waiver signing – Mountain Express Lawn
  • 11am: First wave, each successive wave estimated to start every 20 minutes
  • 11:30am – 3:30pm: Event Food and Beverage open featuring Michelob Ultra and assorted craft beer from Austin Brothers
  • noon – 4pm: Live music from the Chris Calleja Band

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!

Good call. Pile it up.

Looky John LaFave

Sunday meet up? Amber Johnston

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

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

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

Woohoo! See you tomorrow!

Why aren't you open tomorrow?

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! 🙁

Patience 😍

So jealous!!! I wanna 🎿 ski

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.

Forty Acres Tavern – Boyne Mountain

Comments Off on Forty Acres Tavern – Boyne Mountain

A taste for every appetite – and a beer for every acre. Forty Acres Tavern.

In 1947, after cutting his teeth on Otsego Ski Club’s 250 vertical-foot slope, Everett Kircher was convinced that Michigan was ready for more. That summer, accompanied by two friends and a pile of topographical maps, Everett identified his mark: a 1,150-foot rise with more than 500 feet of skiable vertical. But where Everett saw pure potential, the owner of the property – a Michigan senator and Boyne Falls logger named William Pearson – saw folly.

Fortunately, Senator Pearson had a sense of humor – and his response is now the stuff of Boyne legend: “Anyone damn-fool enough to want to build a ski hill, well…I’ll give you the property.” When the details were ironed out, the Senator delivered, and Everett paid $1 for what would become Boyne Mountain’s first 40 acres. Michigan skiing would never be the same.

Forty Acres Tavern celebrates the spirit of that fortuitous transaction – taking the pleasure of the familiar to completely new territory. Equal parts watering hole and refueling station, Forty Acres offers a satisfying selection of spirits and hand-crafted cocktails, a roster of 40 beers…one for each acre and many from Michigan’s finest brewers, and a menu of elevated American pub fare that takes traditional favorites to fresh, innovative and irresistibly tasty places. Like the menu, the atmosphere is familiar and welcoming, with subtle comforts that bring you in for a quick midday or après pop with friends – and keep you around until you’ve had your fill of food, spirits and 40-acres-worth of fun.

Everett’s Restaurant & Lounge – Boyne Mountain

Comments Off on Everett’s Restaurant & Lounge – Boyne Mountain

One of the great pleasures of a vacation at Boyne Mountain is looking forward to your next meal – usually when you’re halfway through the one you’re eating. Good food is part of what sets the resort apart – and Everett’s sets our standard for exceptional deliciousness. Which, for the record, is much better than plain old deliciousness.

Located in the Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa, Everett’s is named after the Everett Kircher – the founder of Boyne Resorts. Like Everett himself, the restaurant is all-American, featuring a menu of mouthwatering steaks, seafood, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and more. The tasty offerings include a range of healthy options, and the irresistible desserts that make healthy eating completely worthwhile. Everett’s bar is every bit as legendary as its food, with an extensive wine list, mixed drinks, beer, and variety of Michigan-made temptations.

Depending on the season, you can choose to sit inside or on our outdoor patio – each with clear views of the resort courtyard. When the weather goes cold, you’ll cozy up to the fireplace – or take a seat near the giant 600-gallon fish tank stocked with Boyne River trout. Everett’s is open daily, year-round serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Whether you start the day with Everett’s breakfast buffet, stop by for lunch, or end the day with a family-and-friends dinner, you’ll find plenty to suit your taste – and plenty of reason to return.
