Winter is right at our doorstep and we've been antsy to get on snow all Summer and Fall. With a little early season snow and lots of man-made snow, Boyne Mountain opened up on November 16th. A few of us were lucky enough to duck out of the shop for an hour and make some great first runs of the season.

Check out the short video recap below, but don't worry, we were back at the shop building skis by 11AM!
