Boyne starts making snow, hopes to open for skiers before Thanksgiving

Northern Michigan ski areas gearing up for upcoming ski season


BOYNE FALLS, Mich. – Snowmaking crews at Boyne fired up snow guns Monday morning at Boyne Highlands and later in the afternoon at Boyne Mountain.

Staff at the Boyne ski resort are hoping to keep the guns blowing snow through Wednesday. At this time Boyne does not have a target date for opening. Everything is dependent on the weather.

Last year Boyne opened on Nov. 27. This year they are hoping to be open sometime before Thanksgiving with a little help from mother nature.

So far ski areas in southeast Michigan have not had an opportunity to make snow but we'll keep you updated on ski areas' progress as they try to open for Thanksgiving.
