I said I get to stay at one of these two choices for FREE! Heck I'd love to go out west, but if I can stay at Boyne and only pay for the lift tickets, I might as well take advantage of it.

Between Boyne and Xmas Mtn. Boyne wins hands down. It's way bigger and has better facilities. You won't find pow at either unless a storm rolls while you are there. You might find pow in the UP but I find it's easier to fly to Colorado than drive to the UP.

Someone mentioned Granite Peak. That hill is good by Midwest standards.

Either way if you like to ride you will have fun regardless

OK, so I did some research and found that Christmas Mountain, Santa's Workshop, Water Park Land, whatever the hell you call this place is just ridiculously small.
It looks like a load of crap, and looks really out-dated.
I've decided that it wouldn't be worth going there, and I'm close to Michigan so I'll just go to Boyne.
I swear, BlueGreen is simply the lamest, most dumbest vacation cooperation on the face of this planet. I see the other guy's choices: There are many, including Copper Mountain, CO for example- these are REAL places.
Oh well, I'm pretty close so I'll go ahead and go.
Thanks for the advice guys!

Yeah I think I saw Granite Peak in the Transworld Resort Guide 2012-2013. That place looks awesome, maybe another time when I'm not using this free trip!

I've been to boyne and can say that it is big by Midwest standards. You probably won't find pow unless it dumps some snow, but they have several terrain parks, a snowboarder x course ( that doesnt sound like the right name). They have lots of groomed runs. I stayed with a group of guys at the village at disciples ridge. No trouble there, although I have heard bad reviews about the one place they have, I think its called Edlewies or something.
Plus they have an indoor water park!!

Boyne is fun. I don't know how the lodging is there but you should have a good time.
