Boyne Mountain Begins Construction of First 8-Pack Chairlift In The Midwest

Boyne Resorts is going all-in with the high speed detachable 8-packs at their resorts across North America.

They made history by installing the Ramcharger 8 at Big Sky, MT a couple of seasons ago, they debuted the Kanc 8 at Loon, NH this season, and will open the Disciples 8 at Boyne Mountain, MI next year.

The resort shared a quick video showing that the Disciples Ridge and Disciples II chairs are being torn down in preparation for Disciples 8.

I don’t want to rain on Boyne’s spending parade, but why in the hell are they building an 8-pack chairlift at a hill in the Midwest?

Boyne only has 500′ of vertical and 415 acres of terrain. I can foresee problems with loading a full lift line of 8-person chairs on a weekend, anybody else…?

Sounds like an over-crowded skiing nightmare on the trails waiting to happen. I hope I’m wrong. I really do. I just can’t wrap my head around a ski resort this size needing such a hefty chairlift… It just doesn’t make sense.
