Before you pack your boards and hit the road for northern Michigan, wouldn’t you like to know what the skiing and snowboarding conditions are like? Well, wonder no more. You can see what the slopes around Boyne Falls and Harbor Springs look like in real time with the help of well-placed webcams.

The Main Lodge Cam at Boyne Highlands shows what is happening right now, from snow guns coating the runs to Mother Nature working her magic. You can even spot skiers as they make their way down the slopes. Seem too good to be true? Double-check with the Day Lodge Cam. Now, don’t you wish you were here?

Boyne Mountain also serves up an up-close view of its slopes. Just look at Clock Tower Lodge webcam for an overview of the resort. Get a closer look with the Mountain Express cam and see the lifts spinning riders to the top. And be sure to check out the Hemlock cam for a view from the mountain’s peak. Okay, you can load up the car now.

Nub’s Nob gives you up-to-the-minute views, too. When you click on the Nub’s webcam and see the conditions of their slopes and the fun being had, the question won’t be whether you should go. It will be how quickly can you get here?

So don’t just watch everyone else having fun. Pack up your skis and boards and come visit one (or more!) of our three ski areas. Click here for lodging info and special winter packages, or call the Visitors Bureau at 800.845.2828 for assistance.
