New Pass Gives Skiers and Snowboarders Access to North American Resorts


Snow ski and snowboard enthusiasts will get access to more than 20 ski resorts across the U.S. and Canada — including Michigan’s Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain — though a new, single ski pass announced today.

“M.A.X. Passholders have the freedom to use the pass however they choose — from single day visits and long weekends to longer ski trips over the holidays,” says Stephen Kircher, president of Boyne Resorts’ Eastern Operations in Boyne Falls.

Participating resorts outside of Michigan include Big Sky in Montana; Steamboat in Colorado; Sugarloaf in Maine; and Blue Mountain in Ontario, among others. Passholders will be able to ski or snowboard at each resort for up to five days for the 2015-2016 season.

Kircher says there are no blackout dates, and days don’t need to be used consecutively. However, days are not transferrable from one mountain to another.

The passes cost $700 for adults, $500 for teens, $250 for kids, and $30 for children 5 and under. Those rates are available through April 30.
