Boyne Mountain and The Highlands at Harbor Springs Announce Plans to Temporarily Cease Resort Operations

Boyne Mountain of Boyne Falls and The Highlands at Harbor Springs today announced plans to temporarily cease regular operations.  

The resorts will close slope operations at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 15.  Hotel guests will depart the property by checkout at 11 a.m. on Monday, March 16.  

The resorts plan to reopen this spring, but an official date is not yet available.   

For The Highlands at Harbor Springs, the closure comes two weeks ahead of its annual spring shutdown.  For Boyne Mountain Resort, this is the first closure for the property since the mid-90s.  

"It goes without saying that this is an unprecedented event, for the country, the world, and for our resort," said Ed Grice, president and general manager of Boyne Mountain Resort.   

"This has been a difficult decision and one that we have not made without hours of careful deliberation," said Mike Chumbler, president and general manager of The Highlands at Harbor Springs.  "For a number of reasons, we feel this is the right decision and look forward to welcoming guests this spring."  

Both resorts are offering guests full refunds or the ability to move their reservation and rebook.
