Coronavirus forces local event cancellations including Kids Festival at Boyne Mountain
The worsening coronavirus outbreak is forcing many event cancellations and postponements. Here are some of them in our area:
Kids Festival off-slope events have been canceled by Boyne Mountain this weekend. Here is their statement:
In an effort to do our part to minimize the spread of illness and still provide an excellent experience, we've made the decision to limit gatherings that provide a high level of guest interaction within a close proximity. Those events include:
* Kids' Festival Weekend - all off-the-slopes events canceled. On-hill events for Sunday as scheduled.
* Ride for Jake - the 1pm gathering and Après Party canceled. We plan to honor the lift ticket portion and distribute armbands.
* Canadian March Break - all indoor events and activities canceled.
* Carnival Weekend - TBD
At this time, all regular operations of our ski slopes, lodging accommodations, waterpark, spa, and dining establishments are to continue as usual or until advised otherwise.
Boyne Mountain is committed to providing a fun, outdoor escape for families by providing a safe, clean environment to recreate.
