Fall is in the air, but the forecast is in and the Farmers Almanac predicts that snowy days are just around the corner. In anticipation of our impending winter wonderland, Pure Michigan has teamed up with Lands’ End to offer fans across the nation the chance to win an ultimate winter getaway at Boyne Highlands Resort.

Lands’ End recently conducted a Snow Days survey of more than 1,000 people and found nearly 80 percent of adults are just excited to enjoy a snow day as their kids. Home to 6,500 miles of snowmobile trails, 3,000 miles of cross country skiing trails and endless terrain for snowshoeing, there’s no better place to experience the thrill of a snow day than Pure Michigan.
Those are just a few of the activities that the winner of the Snow Days Getaway Sweepstakes will have an opportunity to enjoy at Boyne Highlands Resort – one of Michigan’s premiere all-season family resorts. The winner and up to four guests will also be able to hit the 55 downhill ski runs at Boyne and experience the adrenaline rush of winter ziplining. When it’s time to warm up, full service spa treatments and the nearby indoor water park at Boyne Mountain are the perfect break from the weather.
No snow day would be complete without the right winter gear, so Lands’ End is including a $1,000 gift card to outfit the winner’s Pure Michigan adventure.
Visit www.landsend.com/snowdays to enter and for official rules. Contest ends November 14, 2014.
