1. Learn To Ski or Snowboard at Blue’s Learning Centres
Blue Mountain was founded in 1941 and has a long-lasting tradition of welcoming newcomers to the sport of skiing. Proud to be the premier destination for everyone who wants to explore winter sports, we have created this handy guide to help you choose how YOU want to learn. Whether you’re learning on your own with our Snow How self-learn system, taking one-on-one lessons to tailor your learning pace, or joining a group lesson to lean on a friend, our Learning Centres are the perfect place to start your on-hill journey. We can’t wait to welcome you this winter season!
2. Red Devil and Hillside Outfitters Have Officially Re-Opened
We’ve been undergoing some major tune-ups to our Activity Central building, and we’re so excited to finally re-open two of our favourite retail spaces in their new homes: Red Devil Sports and Hillside Outfitters! Come visit Activity Central to shop your favourite brands in the new space, from apparel, to gear, to shoes and more. Plus, when you shop between December 23rd and January 8th, you’ll save the tax on your final purchase – and this discount stacks with your 5×7® Pass retail discount! Come by today to check it out.

4. Download The BMR App To Start Planning Your Trip
The Mountain is calling, so use the Blue Mountain App to make the most of what it has to offer! There’s so many reasons to use the app on-hill, from tracking your laps, to finding your friends, to reading trail maps, to lift line wait times, and having Patrol on speed dial. But we also love the app off the slopes, especially for parking information, walking directions in the Village, and to easily pre-purchase lift or attraction tickets. Download it for Android here and for iOS here to get access to tons of great features.
