Tired of yo-yo skiing? Or spending more time in lift lines than on the slopes? Then grab your skis or board and take a run Up North to the Petoskey Area. This is home to the best slopes from the Rockies to New England. You know the names: Boyne Highlands, Nub’s Nob, Boyne Mountain. From gentle hills for beginners to black diamond thrills, this is where the big-time fun is.

We have the space to keep you safe. More runs (160+ area wide) and more and faster lifts means your time will be spent having fun while keeping distanced from those you don’t know. Things will be a bit different this year – especially in the food and beverage areas. Night skiing will be limited, too, so be sure to visit the individual ski area websites to find out how they’re ensuring your safety while you have an awesome day on the hills and off.
