Hanson Hills

We are sad to announce that a team member has passed away over the weekend. William “BILL” Bonkowski passed away from a brief battle with cancer. Bill envisioned and developed the Hanson Hills Snowsports School and served as the Director for the past 11 years. Bill shared his passion for Skiing, Rock n Roll, and hunting to all that came in contact with him. Bill was a great mentor and helped many young skiers and adults to fall in love with the sport of skiing. We kindly ask for you to keep Bill’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
Rest in Peace my friend and enjoy your Endless Winter!

RIP Bill. I’m so thankful the the time I was able to spend as coworkers inside the rental shop. I’ll cherish those moments forever 🤘❤️

This news is heartbreaking. Thank you for everything Bill Bonkowski.

I’ve known Bill for decades. I followed his physical battles and thought he was on the upswing. I’m so sorry to hear this. What a stand up guy. Only the good die young and that is certainly the case here. I know there is only powder in heaven so enjoy Bill.

So sad. Was such a nice man. Condolences to his family

Sorry to hear this. Bill worked diligently with my son thru the school. Adam respected him. R.I.P.

I'm in shock. He had been through so much with his health and the deaths of his parents. RIP Bill 💔

So sad to hear this. He gave me my first job at 15 years old and helped improve my skiing immensely. 😢

I'm lso sorry to hear this. He was a force for good at Hanson Hills. A lot of people are going to miss him greatly.

what a loss this is for our community

Oh how heartbreaking! Prayers to his family and friends!

RIP Thank you for all you have done for my family.

Sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

So heartbreaking, prayers to the family.

This is so sad!!! Thoughts and prayers go out to his family

So sad to hear this😔

Prayers 🙏

Sincere Sympathy to all who loved and knew Bill. After the darkness comes the promise of a new day, Beyond life’s cares is the sureness of peace.

Very sad

Do ikon pass holders get any discount?

I can't wait for winter. This should save us so much time going back and forth from Disciples Ridge

25.00

Do you need any kind of booking or reservations for visiting on Sunday oct 16?

Not on my bucket list, and for $25 its a big NO.

Just a few miles away from me!

LOVE IT ‼️‼️‼️. Disciples Ridge is soooo beautiful, especially right after a snowfall, snow-dusted pines in the woods. Can't wait for the supa fast ride, power naps can still be had at Alpine lift ☺️

Sounds like Boyne Mountain is sure is growing now with brand new equipment. A great winter get away.

About time the only time I've been to Boyne Mountain was to ride the zipline about 3 years ago in the fall we were to ride the ski lift up to the top of the mountain and Venture down on 13 I believe different zip lines. Everybody went through their tutorial and preparation with their harnesses so everybody was aware, safety, and then we stood in line waiting for the ski lift to take us all the way to the top of the mountain so we waited and we waited and people were actually stuck on the lift in front of us for hours because the lift wasn't functioning so after an hour and a half they took us up on a bus so I would say it's probably a good move to fix that ski lift that is super old and constantly breaking down other than that it was one of the funnest things I've ever done

This is going to be amazing for that side of the mountain! Bring on the snow!

Great job guys!

So awesome! Any idea when we will have a new map showing the new D8 lift and lighting upgrade runs!? Can't wait!

Awesome upgrade! Happier skiers getting more time on the snow and less time riding the chair.

Another reason you have to make six figures a year to ski. Cost of a ticket to ski you can ski an actual Mountain out west on real snow!

Awwwww, poor people, sitting on a chair lift for more then seven minutes! In the 70 to 90’s we skied out west for a week or two. You could take three or four lifts to the top of the mountain, EACH taking 20 to 30 minutes!!. I would smoke a cig on each chair going up. Get off at the top, bend over to tighten my boots, and do A STINKIN’ FACE PLANT, i was so dizzy!!😃 Actually got me to stop smoking! Miss those ski days!

They really needed it. Last time a I visited the lines were as long as Cedar Point. Love how cutting edge these guys have always been.

Yes!!!! That was such a slow lift that it about drove you crazy by the time that you got to the top!!!!! Thank you!!

Exciting can't wait ! You guys should name it the Hemingway ...

Cant wait! We can now spend more time on the runs over there.

Boyne Mountain Resort is the new D8 area going to have new snow guns? And will there be lights back there for night skiing around the D8 ?

Nice resort and playing in the snow like tubing and snow shoeing. How fun.

Awesome, visiting early December hope it's open.

I stayed there in 2006

Bob Sparks nice upgrade at Boyne!

Will that be a new run underneath the Disciples lift?

I worked with Ed in the 90s. Super cool dude. Glad he’s still supervising the property. He used to let us jam in the old othmar chalet in the summertime

Andrew Deren Scott Spencer

I'm sorry but Boyne Mountain was not the first with a four-place lift.they had them in the 70s at other ski resorts and ski hills ..

Vail and associates money

That’s to cool > congratulations

Are they charging extra f I this lift

25.00 dollars a person is ridiculous. Now we know how they’re paying for this. The most I would pay is $10.00 or $15.00. You can still climb Castle Rock in St.Ignace for $1.00.

I would never pay $25 to walk across that. I would pay $25 for a season pass to walk across it, but just one time? Not a chance.

I am excited to see it as I'm sure it's beautiful but I just don't understand paying $25 to walk across it. It's not even that high off the ground.

Grandfather mountain s mile high swinging bridge is FREE. It s awesome!!!!!!!

I will be there for sure, been waiting all year. I would gladly pay the fee for those one of a kind views. I'm sure the upkeep isn't cheap. I will see you there.

$25 in this economy 😳 no thanks.

Why is the opening date blocked by trees?? Poor design.

I think this is amazing. What a great thing for Northern MI/ Boyne Mountain. I can't wait to experience this! 💥

$25 to cross a grassy field???

Get a grip people that cost money to do anything nowadays plus the experience would be so awesome

$25????? Holy cow. Is it free for season pass holders?

I’d come for the day pass. The price is right since its an experience.

Where is the bio!? Where are you guys seeing the price?

How tall is the bridge off the ground?

My son was one of the engineers.....yeah ha!

This looks sweet! Can’t wait to try it out on opening day 😁

LOL $25 per person to walk across a bridge. hard pass!

Even if offered free no thanks

Oh look, something else I don’t want to do.

A case of if they built it, they will come. I'm not paying 25 bucks for this. Just not worth the price in my view.

What kind of boring ride is this?!

I won't walk it even if it were free

Hmmmm. Is it longer then the SkyBridge in Gatlinburg???

I would love it. Probably wouldn't do it more than once but I think it would be a great experience!

Pretty price to walk across😐

✌🏾out East Coast 🥶

Finished up my eastern portion of the quest boyne.mountain - got to ride with d_vibb and explore the area. Small resort on the back side of Lake Michigan, little park setup, fun sky bridge, cool village. The mid mountain cabin was the highlight. Pretty cool vibe there. Obviously had to stop for Wisconsin cheese curds and a s’mores milkshake. Time to head west
