Boyne's season passes are at their lowest price in years, and now is the time to purchase.  They offer so much more than just the Great Lakes resorts in northern Michigan.

You get skiing and riding at the Mountain and Highlands, plus discounts on admission to the Heartland's only slopeside waterpark, Avalanche Bay, and discounts on ski and snowboarding vacations to all of their sister resorts scattered across the continent: Sugarloaf and Sunday River in Maine; Loon Mountain in New Hampshire; Big Sky in Montana; Brighton in Utah; Crystal Mountain and The Summit at Snoqualmie in Washington, and Cypress Mountain in British Columbia.  You receive lodging discounts, and you can ski or ride free for up to 10 days a season at any of the resorts depending on the pass you purchase. 

The pre-season pass sale runs through Monday, Oct. 12.  The Adult Gold Pass, which offers unlimited skiing and riding, no blackout dates, and the incentives at all Boyne Resorts, is currently $699.  A Teen Pass (13-18) and Senior Pass (65-70) is $559, and the Youth Pass (9-12) is $399. 

The Silver Pass, which also offers unlimited skiing and riding at the Highlands, does have a few blackout dates at the Mountain and offers half-off lift tickets at sister resorts.  It's priced respectively at $429, $329 and $249 for adults, teens, and youths.  The Bronze Pass offers unlimited skiing and riding Monday through Friday at both Michigan resorts with some blackout dates, and 25 percent off lift tickets at sister resorts.  It's priced at $269 for all age groups. 

You can lock in the pre-season price for any of the passes through the Boyne Layaway Program and pay off the remaining balance in two equal monthly installments.  You make application on or before the Oct. 12 deadline along with a 50 percent minimum deposit towards the pass; the rest is billed over the next couple of months.
