Far Better than a Bar: Highlands on the Rocks

Boyne Highlands and High Five Craft Distillery team up for Jan. 15 weekend fun
By Jamie Kauffold | Jan. 8, 2022

Some folks apres ski; others shake or stir, then ski. Those in the latter camp will love Highlands on the Rocks, held Jan. 14 through 17 at Boyne Highlands Ski Resort in Harbor Springs. Sponsored by High Five Spirits Craft Distillery in Petoskey, the weekend brings a bevy of on-hill cocktail events, two race events, and even in-room cocktail gifts. The Slopestyle Competition, open to skiers and boarders of all ages, will be held at the Lower Heather Terrain Park at 11am Saturday, Jan. 15. The Snow Cross event, which starts off 11am Sunday, Jan. 16 at MacGully, will pit racers against one another in a challenging double-elimination-style tournament that’ll have them navigating bumps, jumps, dips, and berms galore.
