Blue Mountain offers endless activities
and attractions this time of year. With
the hill’s official opening on December
5th, it’s time to wax your skis and boards
(if you haven’t already) and get out there
to carve the hill! There’s so much to do
at Blue! Get the most out of winter with
Ontario’s best skiing and snowboarding.
Blue Mountain Resort is the third busiest
resort in all of Canada and it’s been over
70 years since its first winter as a ski resort. George Weider was just three years old when his
father brought him to live at the foothills of Blue Mountain on their family farm. His father had a
dream to turn the slopes of the Niagara Escarpment (rising 220 metres above his farm) into a ski
resort. And that he did! It’s hard to believe while walking through the Village at Blue, that it was
once a hayfield. Only 60% built, the Village will continue to grow. Blue Mountain now boasts 15
lifts, including four high-speed six-person chairs with 34 trails ranging from beginner slopes to
double black diamond steeps. The Pontiac Grand Prix chair at the north end of the resort has
been renamed the Jozo Weider chair.

New at Blue Mountain this season is the launch of the Burton’s Kids’ Riglet Park. Burton Kids'
Riglet Park: a miniature terrain-based park targeted toward young and enthusiastic
Blue Mountain’s team of friendly and experienced Snow School instructors ease your child into
the sport in a fun and safe manner with the assistance of the Burton Riglet Reel, which attaches
to the nose of compatible Burton Snowboards and allows riders to be towed through the Park.
The park will be an integral part of the 45-minute Tiny Tot Private snowboard lesson. Kids will
have the chance to practice balancing on their board, transferring their weight, finding their
edge and other freestyle basics by manoeuvring over mellow rollers, small berms and ground-
Snowboards must be 100 cm or shorter and have a Burton Riglet Reel attached to the nose of
the snowboard. Equipment is available to rent at the South Base Rental Shop.
Get the most out of winter and head to the mountain for a day of fun. Off the slopes, you’ll
enjoy guided snowshoe hikes, skating on the Mill Pond, scavenger hunts, the Ridge Runner
Mountain Coaster and much more. There’s something for everyone at Blue!!
