St. Patrick’s Day weekend fun at Boyne Highlands, Boyne Mountain

Springtime brings a bit of zaniness to the slopes at Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs and Boyne Mountain in Boyne Falls as the resorts celebrate all that March brings—blue skies, warmer temperatures, softer snow and fun!

Two long-standing traditions are Krazy Daze at Boyne Highlands, a family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day-themed event, and Carnival Weekend at Boyne Mountain where there’s outrageous fun and parties galore for adults.

 

At Boyne Highlands’ Krazy Daze, March 18-19, there’s live entertainment from The Pulse on Friday night in the Zoo Bar, plus a full day’s worth of fun for adults and kids on Saturday.

Children can participate in a range of on-hill competitions including the kid’s Jump Competition at 11 a.m., Nastar Race starting at 11:30 a.m., and Silly Slalom at 1:45 p.m.

There’s also face painting from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and inflatables to jump and play at the base of the slopes.

A crowd favorite, The Ski Over The Pond, begins at 3 p.m. with plenty of splashes.

An awards presentation for the events takes place at 4:30 p.m. in the Day Lodge, and The Get Krazy Party in the Zoo Bar kicks off at 4 p.m. and features Metro Rockway performing until 8 p.m. and The Remedee from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
