What makes a community? People that care.

The Boyne area is home to one of the United States’ premier ski resort – Boyne Mountain.

Each year, the resort says “thank you” to its local residents, and it is happening this Sunday, January 12th.

Residents of Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet, and Otsego counties receive access to a full day of free skiing and snowboarding.  Residents just need to show their driver’s license at the resort’s lift ticket window to receive their free lift ticket, which also includes access to the resort’s cross country trails.  Lift tickets on Sunday are valid from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Community Appreciation Day tickets cannot be used on any other day.
