Boyne Highlands "Chocolate Cake" Downhill

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Each year, our Boyne Highlands Downhill competition brings the thrill of World Cup-style downhill racing to Boyne Highlands. Open to all ages and ability levels, this popular annual event allows competitors to race on one of two courses - Leprechuan   or Olympic - with awards for male and female winners in a variety of race classes.

Since its inception, the Boyne Highlands Downhill has built its reputation as Michigan's premier alpine racing event, drawing competitors from throughout the region. And whether you come as a racer or a spectator, the fun goes well beyond the slopes, with demos, special events and an awards party that brings the competition's excitement to an action-packed finish.
