Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands Opening Slopes Thanksgiving Day

This Thanksgiving, carve some turkey and then carve the slopes of Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands! The two sister resorts, located about 45-minutes apart, will both offer skiing and snowboarding for the holiday weekend. Three runs are opening at Boyne Mountain Resort based in Boyne Falls – Hemlock, Pierson, and Victor – and one trail, Heather, is opening at Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs.

Slopes will be open from 9am to 4:30pm, Thursday, November 24th, through Sunday, November 27th with lift service on Hemlock at Boyne Mountain and Heather Express at Boyne Highlands. Lift ticket prices at Boyne Mountain are $30 for Juniors ages 6-12, $34 for teens ages 13-18, and $39 for adults. Boyne Highlands is offering an all ages ticket for $35.

With the quick turn to wintery weather, the resorts utilized the proprietary Boyne Low-E fan guns and started making snow on Saturday, November 19th. After this weekend, the resorts will close the slopes midweek to resume snowmaking at every opportunity with plans to reopen next weekend.

Resort amenities including lodging, equipment rental, food and beverage, and more are also available.

Hours of operation are weather dependent. For the latest updates and reports on snow conditions, event information, and lodging packages, visit or call 866.759.1472 and or call 866.759.3530.
