Full review

My husband and three kids just skied & snowboarded at Boyne Highlands with the Ikon pass from Dc 18-21. This used to be our favorite place to ski in Michigan, but I was deeply disappointed by the chaos and lack of COVID mask enforcement. Though we spent over $3000 on Ikon passes, we had to wait in line daily for 30-45 minutes to get day passes to Boyne in the cold next to people who were not wearing masks. This was wasting valuable time on the slops. We asked them to print our Ikon pass, which Ikon assures me they should have been able to do, but they stated they did not have the materials to do so. They also wouldn’t give us multi-day passes, which required that we stood in line daily. There were only about 10-12 benches to sit on and guests would just plop down at the table to eat unmasked, though it was a safety hazard. The heat lamps scarcely had propane, so were not working. They should have had a process or structure for this. Also, I only heard a lift operator ask once for people to put on their masks. Finally, one of the lifts even broke down for part of the day. The experience was so frustrating that we came home early.
