the skiing at boyne mountain was pretty good, however the hotel staff was not very friendly. my wife ad two sons (12 & 14). my 2 boys love to be on the slopes all day and so do I. my wife absolutely loves the spa. we have stayed at the mountain grand lodge twice and once at the eldwiness lodge once. whatever you do never stay at the Eldeiness( although it is very close to the slopes it is very small and poorly maintaned. in my opinion if you re only going for a few days and aren't going to spend much time at the hotel you should go to boyne highlands. it may not have better ammenities but the skiing is much better. but overall boyne mountain is a pretty good place to ski in the Midwest.
