75th anniversary with two new Moving Carpets

Boyne Mountain Resort relies on transportation solutions from Sunkid

Place: Boyne Falls /Year: 2024 / Product: Moving Carpet

"Located in Boyne Falls, Michigan (USA), Boyne Mountain Resort is the ultimate playground for all seasons." Here, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy a ski area of almost 1.7 square kilometers.

To celebrate its 75th anniversary, Boyne Mountain Resort has kicked off this very special winter season with several lift premieres. Two of the new lifts, with a special focus on families and children, are Moving Carpets, planned and realized with Sunkid's North American subsidiary Star Lifts.

Chris Adams (Director of Mountain Experience, Boyne Mountain) is satisfied: "Our experience with the new Sunkid conveyor belt has been great. The families can see it from afar and can hardly wait to try it out. As soon as they stand on the Moving Carpets, the fun continues."

"We have installed two covered Moving Carpets this season," Adams continues. "One in the beginners' area and one for the tubing park (with five lanes). The tubing park manager and his team have literally fallen in love with the new lift solution. It creates a pleasant and unforgettable experience for our guests. In the past, we only had a means of transportation to get back to the top. Now it's part of the experience - and people talk about how great the tubing descent was and how cool the carpet is."

Like the slightly shorter, 120-metre-long "Estelle's Way" in the beginners' area for skiers and boarders, the 159-metre-long facility for tubing guests is also covered along its entire length with an Evolus M-Gallery with blue polycarbonate panels. This includes a roof over the entry and exit area as well as swinging doors that prevent snow and ice from sticking to the conveyor belt and other components at night.

On the Moving Carpets "Estelle's Way", the Sunkid Blue Eye conveyor belt surface (width: 750 mm) guarantees the best possible non-slip surface for winter sports enthusiasts of all ages - as well as ideal drainage of melt water. For the tubing conveyor belt, Sunkid and Star Lifts have found the perfect solution for Boyne Mountain with a 750 millimeter wide Rufftop belt for optimum capacity and cost efficiency.

Chris Adame summarizes: "It was great to see the joy of the families. It certainly helps to reinforce the love of snow sports among all users."
