He grew up riding a private club, his dad still shreds, and he almost gave up hitting rails with his first couple years of getting on a snowboard. Chris Fellner definitely has some stories to tell, and some good insights on what's trending in snowboarding right now. Read on to find out more.
On the heels of Blue Mountain’s record breaking snow season comes a new focus on warm weather activities. Around the Resort, you’ll find our grounds crew diligently working to dig us out of the winter freeze, focused on helping Mother Nature turn Blue from white to green! And while we still hold out hope that there may be one more weekend of skiing and riding, weather and conditions permitting, Blue’s gearing up for summer by beginning to open up some of our green season activities. To help get you excited about the changing season, and perhaps create a little itinerary for your next visit to Blue, here are a few fun facts about our signature attractions!
With the winter we’ve had this year, it should come as no surprise that the 2013/2014 season will be one for the record books! On Monday, April 21st, 2014, Blue will set a new record with 140 days on-snow. 140 days!! That’s over four months of skiing and riding in Ontario…something not seen since the winter of 2008.
The birds are chirping, small buds are beginning to bloom and bluebird days are starting to become a weather standard. Spring has finally sprung at Blue Mountain, and lucky for you skiers and snowboarders out there, there’s no end to the snow season in sight!
It may not feel like it but technically speaking, spring is here! From the looks of our slopes, there’s no way you’d know it. With a healthy base of 130cm from top to bottom, snow conditions at Blue have never been better. And, with any luck, spring weather will be in the forecast bringing with it some of those epic bluebird days and patio après we’ve all been craving.
