It looks like Mother Nature and Old Man Winter aren't quite on the same page at the moment and with some warmer temperatures and rain forecasted this week, we will be waiting at least another week before the lift chairs start moving. But even if Mother Nature isn’t quite ready for winter, Blue Mountain Resort certainly is. We had initially been targeting November 27 as the start to the ski season and with that in mind, the team here at Blue has been checking a lot of items off the to-do list. To hopefully help you get through the waiting period leading up to our official Opening Day, here is some behind-the-scenes insight into all that goes on in preparation for winter.
We were fortunate to host a few students on Resort this month for Take Our Kids to Work Day. Here in Marketing, we put the kids to work and asked them to write a post for the Barn with full creative license! The topic they chose to write about? Snow! (Aren't kids great?) Hayley and Claire share with us the 5 reasons they're getting pumped for winter.
Looking for a fun-filled fall weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving? We have a long list of activities to look forward to here at Blue that will get you outside and excited for the season with enough time to enjoy that delicious turkey dinner.
As you get your gear ready for the coming season, you may be pondering which Blue Mountain Season Pass would be the best addition to your winter jacket this year. It looks like the Farmer’s Almanac is forecasting a proper winter season here in Ontario which means lots of chances to hit the slopes at Blue. To help narrow down which Season Pass is right for you, we have a few questions that will hopefully point you in the right direction for the best pass for your snow persona.
Outdoor adventures continue as we move into the fall season with scenic hikes along the Bruce Trail, a foot trail along the Niagara Escarpment that meets with the peaks at Blue. Laura Jennings, one of our nature-loving locals who is well-seasoned in travelling the trail systems in the area, shares how to get out and enjoy the best that the Bruce has to offer.
