HEAD Olympic Downhill
That's right folks, we are bringing the Downhill back and it's better than ever. This World Cup-style race is open to everyone with different age-classes on each course, along with awards in all classes of male and female divisions. Whether you come as a racer or a spectator, this exciting event offers plenty of entertainment including tailgating, special events, and an awards party that brings the competition’s excitement to an action-packed finish.
For Highlands On The Rocks Weekend, we are excited to bring back our slopestyle throwdown. This competition is open to all skiers and snowboarders who want to go all out for the sake of glory and giveaways. This is a judged event and top finishers will walk away with some great prizes like BOYNE gift cards, and gifts from our sponsors. It will be a fast moving competition with music, an announcer, and various divisions based on the number of entrants. Each rider will get two runs in the park located at Lower Heather.
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.
Sno-Go Hot Cocoa Hustle
Making your way down the mountain has never been so challenging for you and your teammates! Starting at the top of Upper Camelot, you will get a sprinting start to your skis. Once you’ve clipped it in, it’s time to gather your team’s relay baton so to speak - your tray of hot cocoa. This will be your ticket to the end of the finish line as you pass it from teammate to teammate.
Boyne Country Sports Highlander Friends & Family Race
This race is open to ski racers and snowboarders of all ages, so get your team together and enjoy a fun day of racing at The Highlands. As in the past, there will be a "Friends" division and a "Family" division with teams comprised of up to four ski racers. There will be prizes in each division as well as a "non-NASTAR handicapped" winner in each division. The Friends and Family Race at The Highlands Resort has quickly become one of our most popular races of the season.
