Boyne Mountain Is Open For The Season (Opening Day was Nov. 21)

POWDER ALERT!!! After a brief warm-up over the weekend, cooler temps and snowfall have made their return to northern Michigan today! The snowfall started again Monday evening, by the time the chairs were turning at 9am this morning, we had 8" of fresh powder, with up to another 3" forecast throughout the day! Thanks to an abundance of early season snowfall and our snowmaking crew working around the clock, we’ll have 13 trails open for skiing and riding today with three lifts spinning from 9am-4:30pm, including the Mountain Express high speed. We’ve also setup temporary terrain park features on North McLouth while we wait for our permanent terrain parks to open up!

In all, we’ve received upward of THREE FEET of snow since Monday, November 10! On top of that, ideal snowmaking temperatures have allowed us to log over 170 hours of snowmaking so far this season! Our snowmaking crew continues to work around the clock – blasting the snow from the BOYNE Low-E Fan Guns at every opportunity and striving to provide the best possible conditions on the slopes.

Early season lift ticket pricing is in effect through Wednesday, November 26. We’ll continue to open more terrain as soon as possible, so be sure to check back for the latest as cold temperatures and additional snowfall make their return throughout the week.

Cannonsburg Slopes Opening Postponed

Cannonsburg has made the extremely difficult decision to postpone opening for the 2014-15 season until next week due to the forecasted heavy rain moving into West Michigan.

<>

We plan to blow heavy snow today in order to prepare and preserve our massive base and continue blowing as soon as the rain subsides to maintain the amazing snow quality Cannonsburg is known for.

We are extremely disappointed to have to make this call, however we thank you, our guests, for your patience and understanding. As many of you know, Michigan’s weather is extremely unpredictable and ever-changing.

We plan to open next week with plenty of lifts, runs and features for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and skill levels to enjoy. Stay tuned for updates!
