Almost all great skiers have one vital characteristic in common: a solid foundation in skiing fundamentals. That's why we developed the Boyne Flyers - the outstanding ski instruction and coaching program that starts kids out with a solid base of proper free skiing technique in all conditions, and on any type of terrain. Our skiers develop the proper skills to gain a high level of proficiency, giving them the foundation they'll need to enjoy all facets of skiing.
For those with a love of competition and have a need for speed, we have cultivated a high performance training program - the Boyne Team Elite. This class of great skiers takes it to the next level, pushing their boundaries in tactical focus, mental strength, and physical endurance. Trained with a U.S. Ski Team pedigree, our staff strives to give each young athlete the best resources available in a pursuit of their competitive goals.
Enroll your kids in our programs this season and treat them to an experience they'll love today - and pursue for a lifetime.
