Blue Mountain Ski Information

There is also an outdoor pool, and well equipped gym at the Blue Mountain Inn, for those that enjoy being active on holiday. The ice rink will provide hours of fun to the younger visitors and there is a sauna and hot tubs to soothe and warm tired bodies. Toronto is only a 90-minute drive away from the resort and visitors seeking more attractions can make a daytrip there.

Blue Mountain Inn's apres-ski facilities include a spa, fitness centre, indoor tennis courts, family games and live entertainment at Jozo's Bar. If relaxation is the key after a hard day on the slopes, then you should venture to the beautiful town of Collingwood, and perhaps the hottest "night spot" in town, called Planet Collingwood. A place to dine and dance, drinks are reasonably priced, and with a dance floor and 5 pool tables, there is something for everyone. If an English pub atmosphere is more on the agenda, then check out The Admirals Post. With 12 taps and two dart boards, there is an atmosphere of joviality and ease of pace. A definite must for those who feel like rest and relaxation. Although there is not much in the way of shopping in the area, the Blue Mountain Pro-shop competently looks after all equipment needs.
Situated on the Niagara Escarpment, just 90 minutes north of Toronto and 11 km west of Collingwood, Blue Mountain is heralded to be 'Ontario's Largest Mountain Resort'. The resort is a four-season recreational and conference facility destination, and provides an impressive array of activities for the whole family. Skiers and snowboarders, of all ages and abilities, will be challenged by 12 lifts and 34 trails of varying difficulty. Professional instruction is available for skiers and boarders of all levels. There are plenty of restaurants and outside entertainment, and although there is not much in the way of shopping in the area, Blue is an impressive resort in many respects. Its proximity to Toronto makes it an attractive winter vacation spot for active families.
