When is the last time you drank a Michigan brew while burning skis in the bonfire?! If you know us and you’ve been to Skitoberfest, then your answer is likely 2021! We are super stoked to present Skitoberfest 2022 – an Oktoberfest-style party with a twist. Fall for winter with the return of your favorite activities – keg bowling, stein hoisting, Kids’ Zone fun, pond pedaling, and more! We’re creating the great Bier Hall filled with craft brews, delicious eats, and rockin’ the tent with live music. No Skitoberfest is complete without our Pray for Snow Bonfire, wrapping up a perfect fall day in true Boyne Mountain-fashion. Ski ya there!
