The second night of our vacation, due to a drunken visit with Captain Jack, he misplaced his car keys. And so on the third day Cathy and I tore up the resort, the arcade room and our own accomodation’s looking for his keys to no avail.
Yes, it will be cold, but the feeling of being out on the ice is incredible. Give people hot hand packs to warm up. And of course warm them ahead of time to dress incredibly warm and layered.
If the hills are too much for you, put on a pair of womens skates and enjoy the skating rink as you enjoy the Alpine flavored scenery that is Boyne Village. The great hills behind the village all create an enjoyable ambiance. You will also find here, a great snow-tubing park of three tubing lanes, 700 feet long. Now this is something your child will remember. Children must be 5 years old to tube. The tubes are very large.
