Children’s Ski Program at Boyne Mountain, MI

Boyne Mountain, Michigan offers midwest skiing with an out west flavor.  Lift tickets are free for children under 8 years of age.  In addition to ski camps tailored toward children as young as 2 years of age, Boyne has a free beginners lift that allows you and your family to access terrain perfect for teaching little ones to ski.

If skiing isn’t your cup of tea (or if Jack Frost is showing his ugly side), Boyne offers much more than glidin’ down the glades.  The following activities provide a week’s worth of fun:

  • Take the family tubing
  • Splash at Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark
  • Relax and enjoy s’mores around the bonfire
  • Glide down an exciting series of ziplines (60 lbs and up)
  • Experience the thrill of a dog sled ride
  • Play in the heated indoor / outdoor pool
  • Relax in one of Boyne’s many whirlpools
  • Splurge on a spa treatment for mom or dad
  • Cross country ski through the woods
  • Teach the kids to ice skate
  • Enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh or wagon ride
  • Watch a family movie on movie night
  • Listen to bedtime stories in the library
  • Experience grooming first-hand with a snow cat ride.
  • Savor a cup of cocoa and fabulous view from the Eagle’s nest
  • Take the family snowshoeing

Summer offers a host of warm-weather activities that will keep you coming back to Boyne Mountain year after year.  In addition to world-class golf and epic mountain bike trails, Boyne Mountain owns a private little gem of a beach on Deer Lake.  The Beach House restaurant and tiki bar are the perfect setting for summer fun on the water.

The beach is VERY shallow – about 2 ft. at the end of the dock – so it is a great spot for little ones to splash and play.  Boyne provides kayaks and small sailboats free of charge on a first-come-first serve basis.  Jet skis and small power boats are available for rental as well.

If you’re looking for a midwest vacation destination that is well-suited for traveling with young children, Boyne offers value that can’t be beat!
