1st Annual Bourbon & Bacon Bash

MLK Weekend Just Got Better

MLK weekend is one of the best of the winter season and this year, we have something special for all of our guests, 1at Annual BOURBON & BACON BASH! All weekend long you'll be able to find  smokey and spicy specials all over the resort, and the fun doesn't stop there. Friday night when you arrive here at the Highlands, we have a welcome reception lined up full of fun for everyone. With bacon treats, bourbon barrel wine, games and giveaways! Be sure to join in the fun and kick of the weekend right!

THE SIZZLER - Saturday in the afternoon, we have a halfpipe competition unlike any other! The Sizzler is open to all skiers and snowboarders who want to go wall to wall for the sake of bacon and giveaways. This is a judged event and top finishers will walk away with some great prizes like BOYNE gift cards and SWAG from Under Armour.  The Sizzler will be a fast moving competition with music, an announcer, and various divisions based on the number of entrants. Each rider will get two runs and the opportunity for bonus points by hitting "The Sizzler" bacon feature located at the base of the half pipe. Spectators are welcome so come on out! Join us to watch from the base and enjoy a mouthwatering pig roast and Jim Beam Bourbon Bar. We will have music, a bonfire, and a visit from Huey The Highlands Pup to make for a fun -and sizzling- afternoon on the slopes.

BOURBON & BACON TASTING - After you come in from a long day outdoors, cozy up in The Zoo Bar for a bourbon and bacon tasting. Our chefs are creating different sip and savor stations for you to enjoy. Tickets are $35 and get you 5 sample tickets to try the stations of your choice!

BOURBON PAIRING DINNER AT NORTH PEAK - Sunday night we have an 'Exclusive' Bourbon Pairing Dinner at North Peak. The evening begins with a sleigh ride from the Main Lodge lobby to the North Peak. Upon arrival, guests disembark to an inviting bonfire before taking their seats at nearby tables - each adorned in white linen and illuminated by candlelight. On clear nights, the lights of the Mackinac Bridge add to the stunning ambiance. Zack Zavisa, a bourbon pairing expert, will lead guests through a bourbon pairing menu, accompanied by smooth jazz music.

So come out to see us this weekend! We should have lots of sunshine and activities to make for a very memorable weekend.

Because Everything Is Better With Bacon!
