BOYNE FALLS, MI (October 14, 2015) — This winter, Boyne Mountain Resort and Boyne Highlands Resort are rolling out the first phase of enhanced Boyne Low-E fan guns that further increase efficiency and improve snow quality with a new nozzle design. This cutting edge technology is expected to be Boyne’s next snowmaking breakthrough, potentially slashing energy usage in half and making the modified Boyne Low-E fan guns up to 80% more efficient than standard snow guns. The first phase of this roll-out includes 42 snow guns to be tested on two popular slopes – Hemlock at Boyne Mountain and Challenger at Boyne Highlands. The Boyne Low-E fan gun, with its marginal temperature snowmaking capability and unsurpassed quality, has allowed Boyne to offer seasons spanning November to April the past three years.
The resorts are proud to be among 22 unique and legendary ski areas across North America that skiers and snowboarders can access this season with the new and revolutionary M.A.X. Pass. The M.A.X. Pass provides five days at each participating ski area for a total of 110 days on the slopes and no blackout dates. BOYNE Gold passholders are able to purchase the M.A.X. Pass at significantly discounted rates. For complete details, visit www.themaxpass.com.
At Boyne Mountain, the 2015/16 season brings the First Class Lesson Program, expanded lift hours on the Ramshead chairlift, as well as a new fat tire snow biking trail, rental equipment, and seasonal treatments at Solace Spa.
For the 2015/16 season, Boyne Highlands is hosting a women’s only ski clinic with former U.S. ski team member Lisa Densmore, welcomes a new Head Coach for BOYNE Flyers and Team Elite, and is adding ski racing training opportunities, park features, and new equipment.
