Just Keep Skiing

March 2, 2024

Don’t let the intermittent snow fool you—there is still plenty of ski hill fun to be had! Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville hosts its Spring Carnival on Saturday, March 9, with the Cardboard Classic sled race and the wet and wild Slush Cup. Meanwhile, Boyne Mountain is going all in on the younger generation with their Kid’s Festival Weekend, March 8-10, featuring sky-high trampoline bounces, skilly ski races, and a “Wacky Wonka Dinner” inspired by the candyman himself. And to the north, the Highlands at Harbor Springs has a busy line-up on Saturday with the Hops ’N Highlands craft beer weekend and the Snow & Throw Challenge, a ski/snowboard race plus disc golf competition—the first of its kind in the Midwest! Visit resorts’ respective websites to learn more.
