What's New at Boyne Mountain Resort for the 2020-21 Winter Season

For the 20/21 season, Boyne Mountain has implemented many changes to overall operations for the safety and protection of all the resort’s guests and team members. For a complete list of what to expect this winter, please visit boynemountain.com.

For more on what’s new from snowmaking to services, read on…

On The Slopes
Boyne Mountain has added 21 new, top-of-the-line energy efficient and high production HKD snowguns to its fleet of snowmakers. With their extreme efficiency, the snowguns use less air allowing the resort to run more snowguns concurrently, especially helpful in heavy snow use areas like tubing and terrain parks.

The resort has also added lighting to several areas for improved sight conditions during night skiing and riding; added tower guns to Meadows and McLouth, and improved the routing on the beginner trail, Easy Does-It at the top of Meadows.

Guests lodging at the resort now have the option to take advantage of a paper-less check-in adding efficiency, and reducing wait times. Boyne Mountain is also offering curbside check-in by calling 231.549.7902 at least an hour prior to arrival and a Front Desk team member will meet the guest in their car to facilitate the check-in process. New contactless, mobile payment options for added convenience and safety are now available, including Apple Pay and Google Pay. Bellman service, valet parking, and shuttle service remain available this winter.

At the end of a guest’s stay, a new option for Express Checkout has been rolled out providing a copy of the guest bill directly to their email box eliminating the need to stop by the Front Desk.

Food Service Redefined
This winter, Boyne Mountain is launching online food ordering via the Boyne Mountain App, and resort website for takeout at several establishments. Guests can also coordinate advanced provisions purchases and have their suite, condo, or cabin, stocked with groceries upon their arrival, or delivered to their door during their stay.

Five, new dining igloos will grace the property providing seating for groups up to 10 people. The igloos will be located in the Biergarten behind Forty Acres Tavern, and offer service of the restaurant’s full menu, plus beverages.

Guests to the resort can also enjoy to-go light bites, beer, and a limited bar selection at two additional Alpen Hut locations this winter, including at the base of Meadows near the Top Notch Tube Park, and in the Biergarten.

Edelweiss Renovation Continues
After a hiatus this spring as construction was halted due to the state shutdown, hammers are once again swinging at the Edelweiss Lodge. This iconic hotel, a true ski-in/ski-out lodge with 36-rooms at the center of it all, is undergoing a complete top-to-bottom renovation. The transformation will create a refined mountain lodge with soft, natural elements and textures establishing a sense of modern luxury. The Lodge is expected to reopen fall 2021.

The Great Outdoors Is Open
With more than 5,000 acres, Boyne Mountain has many outdoor activities to be enjoyed from fat tire bikes and Sno-Go Bikes, to ziplines, cross country skiing, tubing, and more! Many activities allow you to skip the lines, and book online at shop.boynemountain.com in advance of arrival and some even reward guests with extra savings for shopping online. Coming soon, guests can also book SnowSports Academy lessons and Equipment Rental.

Wayfinding and More
Throughout the resort this season, guests will find wayfinding and one-way directional signage to help flow and mitigate larger, congregational areas. Boyne Mountain has a new pick-up window for advanced purchased lift tickets and season passes located in the Skier Skiers Center across from the Mountain Express chairlift.
