For the most part, the most common ways to tear up the slopes of Michigan are snowboards and skis. Boyne Mountain has decided to add a new option for snow enthusiasts with their new MoonBikes that can rip around at speeds up to 26 miles per hour.

What exactly is a MoonBike?

The easiest way to describe a MoonBike is a small, single-ski snowmobile that is roughly the size of your mountain bike. These snow machines are 100% electric, can travel up to 26 miles per hour, and offer a noiseless & odor-free ride.

Where can I rent a MoonBike?

Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, Michigan now offers winter sports enthusiasts the chance to rent SnowBikes for some fun on the slopes. The resort is offering MoonBike tours on the mountain for friends to enjoy. These tours are one-hour long and take you on an eight-mile trip through the snow.

Here are some things to keep in mind if you want to give this a shot:

  • Helmets are provided with your rental and are required on the tour.
  • Riders must be at least 15 years old or older.
  • The maximum weight for a rider is 265 pounds.
