Ontario’s only mountain village resort, situated along the shores of the Georgian Bay, Blue Mountain Resort is a down-home ski destination that offers a variety of terrain—41% beginner, 13% intermediate, 46% advanced—to suit all levels of skiers.
While Blue may not boast comparable snow totals to some of its Canadian brethren to the west, its top-notch snowmaking system gets the job done each and every winter. Said snowmaking efforts facilitate the construction of a top-notch terrain park, as well—one that’s well respected among the freeskiing community. And whether you’re one to hit the jumps or one to crush groomers, you’ll be interested in one of Blue’s greatest draws: Night skiing is available so you can shred all around the clock and get the most of your stay.
When you’ve had your skiing fill, there’s plenty to explore off of the mountain, too, from the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster to skating the millpond to snow tubing to shredding the slides at the Plunge! Aquatic Center. Or, just stroll around the village and pop into one of the many quirky shops and restaurants. Nearby there is plenty of classic Canadian wildneres to check out if you find some extra time—take a scenic drive, bust out the snowshoes, whatever—you can’t go wrong in this zone.
All told, impressive lake views, varied terrain, off-hill activities and après make Blue Mountain a genuine go-to for East Coasters, Midwesterners and other travelers alike.
