 Welcome to Blue Mountain, known for its amazing four season recreation.  The Village at Blue and the hamlet of Craigleith are found in between the mountain and the shores of Georgian Bay.  Situated along the Niagara Escarpment, this area has amazing scenery and great ways to experience all that this area has to offer.

Blue Mountain is pretty much synonymous with winter. With over 40 different trails for downhill skiing and snowboarding, Blue Mountain is definitely one of the biggest ski resorts in Ontario. In addition to the hill, Blue Mountain also offers a roller coaster, known as the Ridge Runner that you can ride all year long, even during the middle of winter. They also recently added their Woodview Mountaintop Skating Loop where you can skate through the forest overlooking the ski hills.

When most people think of Blue Mountain, they picture skiing or snowboarding down snow covered hills. But, what
most people don’t know is that Blue Mountain is just as popular in the summer months. From hiking and mountain biking to mini put and ropes courses, there’s something to do for every age and skill set. Also during the summer months, the Village at Blue hosts some amazing events and festivals. With a different theme each weekend, there’s always something new and exciting going on.

Blue Mountain is close to all the amenities you may need such as grocery stores, banks and post offices, with a hospital less than 15 minutes away.  There are plenty of small businesses such as restaurants, cafes and shops located at the Village at Blue.  With such a variety of locally grown foods, Blue Mountain offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy local cuisine and even delve into cooking yourself!  Also close to Collingwood which has more stores, boutiques, department stores, large supermarkets, cinemas, and fine dining. Blue Mountain is the perfect option if you want to be just steps away from the mountain or the bay without sacrificing any convenience.

If you’re looking for an adventure close to the hill, go and check out Scenic Caves located at the top of Blue Mountain. Take a tour through the 18 different points of interest, discovering caves as well as the 420 foot suspension bridge. But if you’re looking for something more courageous look into Scenic Caves’ Eco Adventure Tour, where you can do a treetop tour as well as ride the 1,000 foot zip line. You can spend a whole day exploring all that Scenic Caves has to offer.

With such a variety of activities and points of interest, from skiing at the mountain, to spending a night out in the village, there is so much to do in the Blue Mountain area. Add in the amazing beauty that surrounds you in nature and it is clear to see why Blue Mountain  draws people in from near and far to visit and live in!  And it’s only a 2 hour drive from the GTA and Kitchener/Waterloo.
