The team at the SnowSports Academy is looking forward to a safe, fun winter season of learning and falling in love with winter. To reduce contact, a few new procedures will be in place. Most notably, all lessons will meet outside, so you or your child will need to arrive dressed and ready to go. Advanced reservations are required for all lessons- we won't be able to accept drop-ins. We've also capped all lessons at five people max per group, so be sure to register early to get your spot.

We are proud to be offering the award-winning Terrain Based Learning method here at Boyne Highlands Resort, which is offered in our brand new Learn to Turn Zone.
