If you’re unfamiliar with Boyne Mountain, it’s located in northern Michigan (lower peninsula), and is home to an array of winter sport activities and the largest indoor waterpark in Michigan, Avalanche Bay. Located outside Boyne City, this Swiss/Austrian style getaway has more skiing and snowboarding terrain than any other Michigan resort. Boyne offers 500 vertical feet of drop, 60 runs (29 percent green, 41 percent blue, 30 percent black) and 415 skiable acres of terrain and 10 chairlifts. The average 140 inches of snowfall per year is serviced by 10 chairlifts.  Boyne’s longest run is Cold Springs, stretching one mile. Two of Boyne’s most difficult slopes include Devil’s Dive and Nose Dive, both located near the mountain’s peak.

For experiencing the silence and solitude of the winter woods, Boyne Mountain Cross Country Center has 22 miles of trails. Boyne also has a 750-foot tubing run with five lanes, snow shoe trails. Complimentary sleigh rides on most Friday and Saturday nights. A full service spa is located in the Mountain Grand Lodge. There are on property shuttles and shopping.

Our accommodations are at the Clock Tower Lodge.  The guest rooms are slope side (ski in/out) and the lodge has a sauna and a luxurious heated outdoor pool, hot tubs, tubing, and ice skating. There is also a restaurant and lounge with nightly entertainment.

Boyne Mountain Resort is also home to Avalanche Bay indoor waterpark, the largest indoor waterpark in Michigan, offering huge amounts of water fun for every age. This wet and wild waterpark is always 84 degrees and features six exciting water slides, including the park's newest thrill, The Big Couloir - a ProSlide SuperLOOP with the steepest drop in the industry, as well as a Rip Zone surf simulator, Splasherhorn Mountain interactive play structure, lazy river, children's pool, relaxing hot tubs, and many other unique waterpark attractions.

The bus will depart on Friday afternoon and return Sunday evening.
