Not a skier or boarder? We've got you covered.
Not everyone in your family is always a skier or snowboarder, and sometimes you might want to take a break from your favorite sport to try something new. At the Highlands, we have an activity for everyone old and young to fill your need for adventure.
Winter horseback riding is available for everyone age 7 and up, for those under 7 we offer a fifteen minute horseback ride. The beautiful summer trails we use for the horseback journey, turn into an elegant trail with pure Northern Michigan snow all around. Make sure you dress accordingly for this outdoor adventure. Leather boots with a small heel are recommended but not necessary.
With groomed hills and trails, the fat tires on the bike allow for movement on top of the snow. This allows guests to go for scenic bike rides in the crisp winter air, along with the view of the fresh snow on the hill and covering the trees. Bring friends and family to bike trails and enjoy the view the Boyne Highlands trails have to offer.
New this winter to the Highlands, are Sno-Go Bikes! The new fun way to experience the mountain without having to strap on skis or a board. These new bikes go right up the chair with you and can go anywhere on our hill, except the terrain park. They are fun and easy to learn. With every rental you will get a 1 hour lesson with a trained instructor to help send you on your way. We've even got a relay race on Homecoming Weekend called The Sno-Go Hot Cocoa Hustle with a Sno-Go leg and a running leg! Everyone can join the fun.
Guests can also relax Boyne Highlands Spa, facials, massages, etc. Allow yourself to indulge in a rejuvenating and tranquil adventure with our staff there, you won't have to worry about anything.

The excitement starts at the top of the snow-covered, 800-foot long tubing run.
