The Boyne's 1-31-09

Postby mikesathome » Sun Feb 01, 2009 10:55 am

Decided to ski both Boyne's in one day (not really a hard thing to do)

Started off at Boyne MT, had a fresh 2" or 3" of lake effect snow, calm winds, and very light crowds.
Skiing was mostly packed powder with a few spots of ice here and there.
the warming hut @ high noon

Boyne highlands was a little better with less ice and a little more new snow compared to Boyne MT

Boyne MT Meadows Chairlift, the higher speed quad, fixed grip, conveyor load lift.

Hey! You let an empty chair go by! :lol:

Alta put one of those doohickeys on the Supreme lift this winter. It doesn't seem like they've yet increased the line speed, though.
