Boyne Highlands ~ Skier/Boarder Cross ~ January 17, 2021

This event will pit racers against one another, in a spectacular double elimination style tournament, based on the racers’ age, gender, and discipline.

Each race heat has four racers on the course at the same time, firing out of their allocated gates when the starting gun bangs – and battling it out on a course that includes banked turns, jumps and other obstacles. Race against your friends and see who the real king of the mountain is. The first one across the finish line wins! The event is open to skiers and snowboarders, and everyone must have a valid lift ticket or pass, helmet, and signed release form.

Race: Sunday, January 17 at 3pm | Nastar

On Site Registration: There will be registration day of, at Skier Services until 2pm. Questions, please call 231.526.3026.
