Thanks for the tips.

How is a place like Boyne. It's difficult to tell from the trail maps but looks like a decent time with having two parts?

I assume just being busy is its bigger downfall?

I haven't been to Boyne Highlands (which is about 1hr north of Boyne Mountain) in years but I've been to Boyne Mountain the last few years on midweek days in February; it's not crowded during the week, but like any of the midwest resorts the weekends/holidays are very crowded. It is a fun little mountain with a pretty good amount of acreage by midwest standards (500+ IIRC) and a variety of terrain. If staying on-site is too expensive as it often is, the town of Gaylord is about 20 minute away and there are plenty of nice (but cheap) hotels I think I have stayed at the Hampton Inn for like $60/night compared to $180 for a room at Boyne
