Boyne Mountain – Carnival Weekend – March 16 – 18, 2018

Every spring at Boyne Mountain, we celebrate the new season with a party that brings together the festivities of St. Patrick’s Day and the zaniness of Mardi Gras – we affectionately call it Carnival Weekend. Many of you affectionately call it “Crazy Daze.” Whatever you want to call it, just know that this weekend brings the silliness out of us all. Whether you are skimming the pond in our annual Slush Cup or getting jiggy with it during the On-hill Party, you are bound to laugh at yourself and your friends. Carnival Weekend isn’t recommended for kids, just for the adults that want to act like kids again!

Carnival Weekend Ski & Stay Packages starting at $177. Please call 855.688.7024 for reservations.
