It was our second full day at Boyne Mountain Resort in Michigan and we were having a blast.
I had brought along my friends Brittany and Angela, and Angela’s daughter Kylie. Boyne Mountain put up in a very spacious Salzburg Suite in the Main Lodge. It had a cozy living room, full kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Angela and I each claimed the larger bedrooms and the (grown) girls had a lot of fun in the colorful kids room, which had two bunk beds.
We once again had breakfast downstairs at Everett’s, where the buffet had a nice selection of choices and the Vanilla Bean Pancakes and French Toast, in a vanilla cinnamon custard, are amazing.
From Everett’s we could also see snow-filled views of the Boyne Mountain’s Alpine Village .
After breakfast we went down to the village and walked around the shops until it was time for Brittany and Kylie’s ski lessons.
The Skier Services building is huge. It’s where you get equipment, register for lessons, and purchase ski packages. It’s extremely organized and everyone there is very helpful, whether you are a beginner (as they were) or an advanced skier.
While they were skiing, Angela and I enjoyed some coffee and girl talk. There are benches outside to watch the skiers, and also the Kids Camp, where young non-skiers were having a lot of fun playing while their parents hit the slopes.
After the skiing, we all went to Kilwin’s Fudge Shop for some hot chocolate, followed by lunch at Forty Acres Tavern. We had liked it so much the day before we decided to return.
In the afternoon, I wasn’t feeling great and decided to stay back at the suite while they went Cross Country Skiing.
They had a great time – Brittany liked it much better than downhill skiing – and thought the path’s Boyne Mountain had available were terrific.
We stayed in the room for some pizza for dinner. After we ate, we went outside to the bonfire and enjoyed s’mores. It was another complimentary amenity the resort had.
It had been a long day of winter fun and everyone was exhausted. We hit the beds pretty early to rest before our last day at Boyne Mountain Resort, Boyne Falls.
