I totally understand not everyone hates winter as much as I do, and there are a ton of snow bunnies out there looking for some winter getaways. Don’t worry, we don’t discriminate weather here at A&A!
Today I’ve got some tips on how to have the best weekend getaway on the slopes at Blue Mountain Village.
Blue Mountain is a popular ski destination for Winter Warriors in Ontario; it’s home to 42 ski hills on its 364-acre property. Located at Southern Georgian Bay, it’s Ontario’s largest mountain village resort and has become a popular year-round destination for travellers.
Blue Mountain offers skiing and snowboarding options for every skill level. They offer beginner to advanced hills as well as glades, night skiing, and a terrain park. They also offer a variety of different ski packages to suit your needs. Whether you’re looking for a single lift ticket or a seasons pass, they can accommodate you and your party during your stay.
Blue Mountain also offers a complimentary resort shuttle 365 days a year to bring guests from their chalets to the ski hills. They also offer a convenient ski valet service where you can store your rental gear overnight and have it brought to you when you’re ready to hit the slopes.
If you’re not a skier or snowboarder, Blue Mountain still has a variety of winter activities to offer you! They have a tubing hill for those who prefer to already start their journey downhill on their butts, as well as an outdoor skating rink and an outdoor aquatic centre for kids. There are also a variety of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing activities available to guests at Blue Mountain.
After it’s ski hills, Blue Mountain is famous for its incredible spas. There are three spas in the village; the Iwa Spa, the Scandinave Spa, and the Kalola Spa. The Scanidave Spa is by far the most popular spa in the village due to its famous thermal baths. Guests can relax after their massage treatments in a warm thermal bath situated in the stunning natural forest. The Iwa Spa is famous for its volcanic rock sauna room where guests can do some yoga or just relax after their massage treatments. Finally, the Kalola Spa proudly embraces the natural elements of the village and is geared towards organic wellness treatments.
There are almost a dozen different lodging options at Blue Mountain, ranging from standard to deluxe accommodations. Most of them are chalet styles, meaning they each have their own kitchen and living area. Some of the deluxe or upscale options also have additional amenities such as housekeeping, heated outdoor pools, and fitness facilities.
Standard accommodations starting at: $119 CAD
Deluxe accommodations starting at: $229 CAD
Upscale accommodations starting at: $344 CAD
Most of the accommodations also offer ski packages during booking, so keep an eye out!
In the village you’ll find a variety of food and shopping options to keep you occupied when you’re not skiing or enjoying one of the spas. The shops offer a variety of winter clothing and skiing/snowboarding needs in case anyone in your party has forgotten something, or you’re just looking to upgrade your gear! Dining in the village is a breeze, with a variety of options ranging from pub food to upscale steak houses that cater to a variety of dietary restrictions. There’s also a Starbucks and a fun candy store located in the heart of the village! Of course you can also grab a beaver tail in between your trips up the hill!
Blue Mountain is the perfect little getaway for any snow bunnies looking to get in some skiing and get away from the big cities, as well as anyone just looking to relax and reward themselves with an award winning spa treatment.
