Your Blue Mountain Winter Bucket List

With incredible activities and unforgettable experiences on the horizon, we extend a warm invitation for you to mark off your winter bucket list here at Blue Mountain. Follow along to see how you can make this winter season the best one yet!

1. Go For Sunday Brunch at The Pottery

Start your ski day off with brunch at The Pottery Alpine Restaurant! Their new menu offerings expertly blend the flavours and harvests of the Georgian Bay region with flavours from Jozo’s Eastern European heritage. With design reminiscent of the rustic charm found in alpine lodges, The Pottery offers an inviting space to dive into the alpine experience here at Blue. Stop by for a brunch with friends and try one of our new classics!

2. Ski Coast to Coast In One Night

We challenge you to ski or ride coast to coast this winter, hitting 4/5 chairlifts all in one night! With 30 lit night trails, there’s so much to explore across the whole mountain. Don’t forget to snap a slopeside pic for the ‘gram of the Village lit up with hundreds of twinkly lights!

3. Get Involved In One Fun Event

Whether you’re partying at Off-Piste during College & University Week, or marching strong in the Pride Blue Mountain parade, there’s always something fun going on at Blue! Make sure to catch at least one of our signature events this season to mark this off your bucket list. If you’re an early bird pass holder, head to First Tracks & Flapjacks on February 16. Or if you prefer an evening vibe, check out the Big Air Show March 11-14. Spring skiing is never better than at Retro Pond Skim on March 30, plus catch the Ikon Pass Holder Appreciation BBQ the same day to snag a complimentary lunch. There’s a mountain of events to check out right here!

4. Hit a Bullseye at AXED

Try your hand at axe throwing at AXED, located in the heart of the village. Experience the thrill of hitting the bullseye and share the excitement with friends, family, or your special date!

5. Try All Eight Beers On Tap at The Bullwheel Pub

Unleash the beer enthusiast within and sample a different beer on tap each time you visit the Bullwheel Pub, located in South Base Lodge. Revel in the relaxed slope-side setting, where you can indulge in classic Canadian comfort food, sip on post-ride beverages, and enjoy weekend après entertainment.

6. Learn From All Five Snow How Pillars

It’s never too late to learn something new! Take on skiing or snowboarding this season with our Snow How Self-Learn System that will guide you through the process—from gearing up for skiing to mastering the art of turning. The Snow How bundle includes ski or snowboard rentals, a beginner lift ticket, and access to the self-learn system.

7. Hit a Triple Play In One Day

Fill your day with play! Find fun all around with lots of mountain adventures, from our Woodview Skating Trail atop the mountain, to some old-fashioned fun at Hike N’ Tube, to whooshing through the forest on the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, or diving into play at Plunge! Aquatic Centre’s indoor water playground. Hit at least three of these four activities with a Play All Day ticket to cross this one off your list!
