7 Tips for Skiing and Snowboarding in Cold Weather

Winter at Boyne can get cold in some months! But without the Lake Effect weather, Boyne Resort's powder-snow wouldn't be what it is and we wouldn't be writing this article to help you stay warm on your ski vacation! With a little preparation and maybe a smart purchase or two along the way, you can ensure that you won't need to worry about the cold and you'll be carving down the slopes on even the most blustery of days.

  1. Lots of layers. Rule number one is a no-brainer for most. In order to prevent heat loss, the best method is to wear multiple layers rather than opting for thick and heavy jackets or sweaters. Plan your outfits accordingly with multiple layers of different materials,

1. When should I visit Deer Lake?

This is really up to you and what you like to do. There’s certainly no bad time to visit Deer Lake, which is why we call it a “year-round playground.” In the summer, we’ve got beaches, hiking, biking, and more.

Whether driving or flying, getting here is relatively easy with plenty of beautiful lake views and scenery along the way.

In 2012, Lake Charlevoix was voted the second-best lake in America in a USA Today poll, behind only Lake Tahoe. Being awarded this honor is partly due to the many forms of recreation the lake provides, including swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, diving, boating, water skiing, and just relaxing on the beach. It is also due to Lake Charlevoix being one of Michigan’s largest and most magnificent lakes. Lake Charlevoix is the 3rd largest lake in the state in terms of surface area, but due to its shape and the elongate South Arm, its shoreline length far exceeds that of any other inland lake in Michigan. If you kayak the entire shoreline of Lake Charlevoix, you will have traversed 60 miles!

Ski vacation homes are no different than the pattern we see with other vacation homes.  They tend to be located in great ski towns that are fun in both summer and winter, have a charm that goes way above and beyond owning just a normal rental
