Best Place in lower Michigan when it comes to areas to ride. I've been to them all and Boyne Mt. is the most spread out and has the most terrain to offer all skill levels.
I was a little dissapointed when I went on 122607 and 122707 that the pipe wasn't open and their terrain park wasn't in the usual spot next to it. When it's open it's as good a park as you can find in Michigan with integrated jumps and rails. This year they had rails but not jumps on rails.
The biggest problem I have with Boyne is the amount of riders who go there. It get's packed. Anyone who say's boarders are menaces hasn't been to Boyne when the skiers are swishing back and forth taking up an area twenty feet wide, (everytime I was cut off it was by a skier not a boarder). The resort does all they can when it's busy, they open all lifts and try to ease the congestion, but due to it's popularity there's not much you can do except go to the backside and enjoy.
Definitely a good place to spend a day or two. As always in MI, icy not a mountain.
