Located in the village of Boyne Falls, Michigan, Boyne Mountain Resorts opened its doors in 1948 with a single chairlift, a single run and a single warming hut. Over 70 years later, Boyne Mountain Resort is still host to winter recreation including alpine and Nordic skiing and additional activities such as snowshoeing, tubing, and ice skating. Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain are sister resorts.
The nearest airport is Boyne Mountain Airport (BFA), but it only services private planes. For commercial fliers, the nearest airport would be Traverse City Cherry Capital (TVC), which is serviced by Delta, United Express and American Airlines. The airport is about 1 hour and 20 minutes by car from Boyne.
