On this day Boyne Highlands Resort opens with two of the world’s first triple chair ski lifts and an Alpine style ski lodge. Harbor Springs residents actually started the resort in 1955-56 but called it Harbor Highlands. During 1961-62, they sold it to Everett Kirchner, who would rename it Boyne Highlands.
