Blue Mountain Ontario Reviews & Tips (37)

To start with. I am an advanced level skier who is a Michigan transplant. I grew up skiing Vermont with a lot of trips out west. I heard good things about Blue Mountain from Michigan skiers, who also rave about Boyne Mountain so I've learned to take any recommendations with a grain of salt. To start with. Blue Mountain is an okay intermediate ski spot and not much more. The blacks are not noticeably different from the intermediates. The double blacks are merely little steep spots (maybe 100 vertical feet) at the top of an otherwise intermediate run. More then likely you'll have 10 people stopped halfway down which will prevent you from bombing down it with any kind of speed unless your really lucky and it's empty. It's a short mountain. Using SkiTracks app over a day. 22976 vertical feet spread over 37 runs putting the mountain at 621 vertical and not the close to 800 feet they advertise. It may be wide with several base areas but this does nothing to make the runs feel longer or improve the actual skiing experience. None of the runs from different base areas really have any different feel to them. They add to the mountain capacity but not run quality or run duration. The view is nice. The mountain overlooks Georgian Bay. This is the one real advantage Blue Mountain has over any Michigan ski resort or Bristol Mountain in New York. If you are driving to Blue Mountain from Southeast Michigan it is 150 miles down 2 lane 55mph roads. Get ready for a long trip through nowhere. Given the options for skiing from Michigan, you have: Boyne Mountain, over priced and 4.5 hour and really short mountain. Not worth the drive or lift ticket cost. Blue Mountain, over priced for what it is and a 4.5 hour drive also. Much better then Boyne Mountain since the runs are microscopically short. Still feel short. No real expert terrain. Best suited for intermediates. Bristol Mountain, NY. Cheaper lift tickets and much more vertical and steeper terrain. 5.5 hour drive time. I still haven't found a better value or better skiing wthin 6 hour drive of Detroit, MI.

I also find Blue Mountain very over priced for what you get but it is one of the larger places here in Ontario. It's priced at the other Intrawest Resorts - but it is not big mountain skiing - like Tremblant or Whistler. I did find the deal from Liftopia was ok - and comparable - if you want you can get similar deals off the Blue Mountain site in Canadian Funds - it's the book days in advance feature - compare the prices - it's about the same - I found the US site had a slightly higher discount and offered another option which included a $10 food voucher for $5 (which was slightly cheaper than the Can site). The vouchers can be scanned at any of the booths for lift tickets. Very easy to redeem. This hill is often really overrun with beginner skiers skiing everywhere out of control (usually weekends and family days) - it can be dangerous for the rest of us who know what we are doing! So be aware at all times - especially in the runs where you are cutting across or at around 4pm when they close some runs to groom. They sit in the middle of runs and block the way - make it really tough to get by - they will also ski right into you and not even apologize. I really wish they do more about the inexperienced skiers/ boarders - but this place is very corporate now. I used to buy a pass here until I was hurt by one of these newbys' years ago - I stayed away for a while and visited some other hills but ended p coming back recently since it's close by.

Blue mountain itself was great. We went on a Thursday and it was almost empty. The only disappointment was buying our lift tickets through liftopia. We were only planning on buying ay tickets, but liftopia had day/night tickets listed for less than the normal price of a day ticket. However the site did not state that the prices were listed in US dollars until I got the confirmation. Because of the currency difference, we ended up paying even more than the normal price for a day/night pass. If we had known this beforehand we would have never used liftopia. I will not be using this site again.

Feb 10-11, 2015…Skied the North all day and then went to Memory Lane etc..This is about where to stay. Days Inn Collingwood is a bit pricy however! The Pool, exersize room, and BUSINESS CENTRE are well worth the price. I could connect with my store shanfields.net at all times of day and night and could print out orders all for free. THE BREAKFAST is huge…WAFFLES, bagels, bread, muffins. hot cereal and cold, cream cheese and peanut butter teas coffee etc. Bring a baggie with you and make a bagel with spreads for lunch and take an apple for energy. The rooms are wonderful and it is so quiet there. Really a restful place. If you are an expert skier skip the Orchard area…long way to get to flats. Stay on the North and do it all it is the best.

Owen Hounslow Intermediate Snowboarder
When you get to Blue drive to the North area near the Conference Centre and park there. There are no school kids on the North and the skiing is much better. The elevation is greater. There are double blacks that are short but steep. My favourites are blue Shuss that you get from Rabbit Run. Along the side of the hill is a treed area with a trail you can take through the trees and come out over the run Schuss get some air and continue skiing. Hogs Back is the longest on the North and a really good Black. Spectacular is a challenge always but if you get it on a snowy day it is manageable. Larway is also a good black run almost as steep as Spectacular. Be aware of boarders….if they are not skilled they reck havoc on the North.

watch out for the kamikaze little kids and newbies who can't control where they are going! even on the more advanced runs there were tons of people skiing and boarding out of control making it dangerous for them and anyone trying to ski around them.

First time at Blue.Conditions where pretty good. not to busy as we went on a Friday. Wind blows pretty hard as you ascend the mountain on the lifts, thankfully we packed our balaclava so my tip would be to pack yours. The tops of the hills are a little icy due to the wind blowing and eroding the loose snow but that is only near the top and start of your run the rest is good. Blue crew does a good job grooming. Nice that they re-groom at 4pm. First time I've seen that so it's nice to have a run on a freshly groomed run especially at or near the end of your day. Ate in the slope side cafeteria's. Busy as to be expected but the food is good and reasonably priced. The café crew does a great job feeding and moving people through. Be patient we are all in the same boat. 2 thumbs up.

Went to Blue Mtn on 01/17. It was good but it was pretty busy. Lift times were 5-10 minutes. It was busy because of the unusually warm weather and it was a saturday night. When it is cold, there are less people. Food is expensive so bring energy bars and a cooler if you want to save cash.

Went up 1/15 - 1/18. Slopes were great and challenging. Staff was good. Friday was great. Saturday was WAYYYY too crowded. Lifts were over crowded. Slopes were overcrowded. Bus loads upon bus loads of people were bussed in. I overheard staff stating they had to work triple shifts because of the over crowding. We couldn't get into any restaurants on Saturday. I agree with others...stay at Mountain Springs. It has a kitchen and you can make your own meals. Also very pricey. No, I wont be going back.

Visited Blue Mountain during March Break, had a great time. Lift Lines were well managed and moved very fast. The snow was great, the runs were really well maintained and got groomed again around 5 pm. I would definitely go again, only this time i'll probably stay overnight to enjoy the hills a bit longer

Start off at the North trails in the morning when your energy is up. Hogs Back is a strong Blue with a wonderful fall line and length. The sun is at that side of the mountain. Elevator Shaft is like Spectacular only narrower…Spec is best this time of year early March when there is no ice, Anyone who is a Blue run skier will enjoy this double black.

This place is a rip off!! you spend most of your time in line for a lift up than you do on the "slopes"..... everything is so overpriced, huge disappointment. You're better off going to NY State, cheaper, nicer and a true ski town atmosphere, not corporate. Never again, they boast as being the highest vertical drop in Ontario..... nothing to write home about since Ontario is FLAT!!! $75 for a lift ticket is a rip off!! I can go out east or out west and get a lift ticket for that price for a REAL MOUNTAIN!!! This place should be called "Blue Hill"

Snow was heavy saturday thus the workout was a little more than expected. Given it was March break weekend lines moved well and 6-man lifts were great. Would have been great if the Liftopia discount purchase was noted to be in USD and not Canadian - as was assumed... but my bad!

Skied from 8:45am - 8pm on Saturday. Great first thing as crowds were low. Got very busy mid morning. All the express 6 man lifts very long wait however 3 man lift on South side no lines and good runs from it. Excellent overall first experience. Lift staff very friendly and courteous. Trails were a little chewed up by mid afternoon but groomers out for night crowd. Will definetly go back. Mike - London Ontario

Snow was good and natural a bonus.People operating lifts friendly. Busy but not extremely on Sunday. At the resort tickets cost 2 junior kids and 1 adult 2x$52 1X $69 for total $173 CAN. At Liftopia cost $158.41 CAN Savings $14.59 .Taking into account purchase in advance an flex currency exchange is not worth it in my opinion Lots of new to the sport but without proper training. There is so minimal policing on the hills that it makes it unsafe and yet the resort demands vividly that there is the exclusion of liability on each ticket in extreme yellow. I hope people read clearly that the hills decline any liability and that the holder of the ticket assumes all the risk.

You do not want to go to Blue Mountain on Family day. I went a few years back and it was a nightmare of long waits for lifts. If you love crowds equivalent to New Years Eve in Nathan Philips Square Blue is the place for you on Family day.

Don't come here unless you plan to stay the night. It may be the biggest hill in Ontario but not by much. It's 2 hours away from Toronto, I would much rather go to St. Louis Moonstone which is just over an hour distance and cheaper in price.

Don't stay at the Blue Mtn Inn. The walls are as thin as paper. We had a party going all night and the hotel staff did not end it. Brutal. It's beat up. Stay at the Westin or Mtn Springs. It doesn't matter how big the lines are, use the singles line and you'll double your vertical and your partner is on the next chair. The Liftopia tickets were also good from 9am to 10pm. Don't go to the the ticket window- go to the guest services inside to receive them and you have to go each day-they don't print multi day passes.

If you plan to stay, The Westin is fabulous!! Great rooms, helpful staff, views from every room, great food at O & B, year round hot tubs and heated outdoor pool, ski lockers, and almost ski in/ski out. Happy Hour at Twist Martini Bar in the Village from 4 - 6 p.m. is a bargain, but get there early on weekends.

Blue Mountain is a great facility located in Central Ontario, 2 hours north of Toronto. For those "advanced" skiers who've posted here in the past - if you are an expert skier who wants an aggressive run, you'll know that you won't find that in Ontario. The Niagara Escarpment, which is what Blue Mountain is on, is the highest elevation in central Ontario - not the dizzying heights an aggressive skier dreams of. Best to head elsewhere. But, if you want a clean and well maintained, and professionally run public ski hill in the GTA, Blue Mountain is a great spot. With a wide array of skill levels, stick to the slopes that suit your level and you'll be good. Also, don't blame the management for what mother nature does or doesn't give. We all know made snow isn't as good as the real stuff, but if the weather isn't cooperating, then resorts have to make it to rise to the demand of the public. When you need a 'ski fix' you'll take what you can get. Just chill on the hill....relax and enjoy the beautiful view of Georgian Bay on your way down, and the good natured lift-people on you're way back up.

I went on January 21st, which was not reading week nor family day weekend. Granted, it was one of the first good snow days in Ontario. I realize Collingwood is the best local choice for the GTA, as previously mentioned. It's just too bad we have to squeeze such a large population on the hill. This is no fault of the resort though, and they do a great job of keeping runs groomed throughout the day. My original point still stands, if you're looking for more a more difficult run (glades, chutes, backcountry), you might consider the 7hour drive east to VT/QC/NH/NY/ME. If travelling isn't an option, our local hills will suffice.

@madhatt: If you don't like lineups, then you should have stayed away from Blue on a weekend that was: 1) the first good conditions all winter 2) family day weekend 3) the start of reading week. It was pretty much guaranteed to be busy. Vermont is 550km from Toronto. I would say that most people who go to Blue aren't considering Vermont, Quebec, or anywhere else... it is just too far. I

Considering the horrible winter Ontario has endured, the grooming and snow making staff did an excellent job. No lines at all, and pick an area where there aren't an abundance of skiers (easy to do) and the day will go great. Eating at full service restaurants not much more than at main stations, less crowded and quieter.

This past weekend reminded me why I drive to Vermont or fly to B.C. to ski. There were constant lift lines from 10am - 10pm, mediocre snow conditions, super icy areas. The hill is extremely overcrowded with newbie skiers, who are unpredictable and leave you swerving and dodging to avoid injury. Quite frankly, I felt more at risk of injury here than I did in the glades at Revelstoke with the potential of slipping on ice or nearly getting run over by riders out of control. To conclude, Blue Mountain is still the largest and likely most challenging public hill in Ontario. The only comparable hill would be Holiday Valley in Western New York. If you do head to Blue Mountain, make sure you keep well aware of your surroundings. If you're an advanced skier, consider driving the extra few hours and go to Vermont.
