Up in Petoskey next weekend. Which is better Mt or Highlands. Do I have to buy the pass or can I just ride it

Also consider Avalanche Park and Boyne City School Forest. Those are XC-type stuff, but Avalanche has some nice fun elevation and the School Forest is nice twisty stuff through the trees with good rolling hills.

Highlands is a lot of fun! They don’t have a ton of miles, but it’s well built with multiple offshoots to mix it up when doing laps.

Highlands has downhill runs, with jumps, features, etc., as well as cross country trails. You only need a pass to ride the lifts. When we're up there, I usually do a 15-20 mile cross country-ish ride in the morning, then come in, eat lunch, take a nap & ride the lifts in the afternoon. FYI, the lifts do not run Mondays & Tuesdays.

Highlands had substantial damage to their trails after the last big storm and I'm not sure if they've cleaned it up yet.

Avalanche was in great shape this weekend. When I rode Boyne Mountain about a month ago there were a few face slappers on the Bridges section but other than that it was in great shape albeit washed out in some sandy spots.

There's also a few handcut loops in East Jordan off the back of the middle school that have more technical features and rock if you're into that.

Not sure if it's 100% cleaned up yet, but there was plenty open last week.
