New retail offerings, a larger skiing terrain, a renovated salon, and expanded children’s activities are among the updates being offered by Boyne Falls-based Boyne Mountain Resort for the 2016/17 winter season.
Winter guests at Boyne Mountain, located at 1 Boyne Mountain Rd., can browse gear in two new shops now open in the resort’s Village. The newest addition is the Under Armour Store offering an assortment of athletic apparel, footwear, and accessories. Located underneath the Under Armour Store is a new North Face Store, which carries a selection of men’s, women’s, and juniors clothing and outerwear, as well as footwear and backpacks.
The stores join six other businesses operating in the Village, including Boyne Country Sports, Boyne Outfitters, Forty Acres Tavern, Kilwins, Spielladen Toy and Candy, and Mountain Express Deli and Provisions, which will now offer a delivery service to guest rooms and condosâ€¨â€¨
In turn, a new activity room called Fritz’s Snow Fort has been added to the resort’s Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark. The space offers kids up to age 12 a play structure loft and space to create art projects. Access to the fort is complimentary for resort lodging guests and included with admission to the waterpark.
Among other updates:
Lights have been added to an additional 30 acres of terrain at the resort’s Meadows area, providing more space for nighttime skiers. The new lights will illuminate The Meadows, Idiots Delight, Thunder, and Stein’s Mambo runs.
Upgrades have been made to The Spa at Boyne Mountain, formerly know as the Solace Spa. The open flow salon concept features four pedicure chairs, two manicure stations, makeup services, and haircut, coloring, and styling. The 19,500-square-foot facility features 18 treatment rooms and cedar saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools, fitness equipment, fitness classes, an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, hot tubs, and more.
Summit-to-Stein’s Snowshoe Suppers, an evening event featuring a snowshoe hike, hot toddies, bonfire, and dinner that launched last winter, is expanding its hours of operation to both Friday and Saturday nights. Guests who participate in the Friday event receive a three-course dinner of cheese fondue, choice of beef or fish entrée, and a chocolate fondue with fruits and cookies. The Saturday supper features a prime rib and shrimp buffet.
“At Boyne Mountain, we’re always looking for ways to enhance our guests’ experiences while at the resort,” says Erin Ernst, director of communications at Boyne Mountain Resort. “We’re excited about the many new additions and expanded activities available this winter that will build on a memorable ski getaway.”
