Boyne Mountain Resort Garners Awards for Best Midwest Terrain

Boyne Mountain has been recognized by several authorities on skiing and snowboarding ranking the resort’s terrain among the best in the Midwest.

For the second straight year, Boyne Mountain earned the No. 1 Terrain Park in the Midwest by TransWorld Snowboarding’s 2017 Park Poll. The magazine ranks the best terrain parks across North America and prints the annual list in its Nov. issue.

Adding another credit to the popularity of the resort’s terrain parks is a No. 2 ranking from Newschoolers’ 2017 Park Poll. The online site said, “Their park crew really stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park with creative hits and frequent resets. As one of Michigan’s first resorts to open every year, they are the go-to spot for early season shredding.”

Boyne Mountain also claimed the Best Overall terrain, along with sister resort Boyne Highlands, in’s 2016 Visitors’ Choice Awards, and was also credited with having the Best Nightlife in the Midwest.

Boyne Mountain offers 415 skiable acres and seven terrain parks with over 60 features of varying sizes. For the youngest riders, the Burton Riglet Park is specially designed for 3- to 6-year-olds entering the world of snowboarding. Beginner park riders can explore Fritz’s Terrain Park with numerous small boxes and rails, and Campbells Alley, a terrain based learning area. Ramshead Terrain Park is among the most popular at the resort with a large jump line and over 25 medium features. At the center of it all, North McLouth Park offers a massive jump line perfect for spectating for those not quite ready for the big time. Among the most unique is the Transfer Station, which utilizes natural log features and jibs in a wooded locale. Those looking for high-speed adrenaline can race on the Chmielew-ski skier/boardercross course.
