Boyne Mountain Resort has added guided forest tours in the snow on MoonBikes to its roster of winter activities. “MoonBikes are a hybrid snow vehicle, combining the body of a bike and the power/torque of a snowmobile (although not quite as strong) with a powder ski in front,” says Boyne Mountain Director of Adventure Patrick Patoka. “They are 100% electric, making them a perfect fit for our resort’s environmental sustainability goals.
“The ride experience is very quiet, also,” he continues. “The bikes can travel as fast as 28 miles per hour at a distance of about 35 miles on a full charge.” The resort has 10 MoonBikes in its fleet and says in a press release it’s the first in the Midwest to offer them.
