Welcome to Blue Mountain
About Blue Mountain
Welcome to Blue Mountain, known for its amazing four-season recreation. The Blue Mountain Village and the hamlet of Craigleith are found in between the mountain and the shores of Georgian Bay. 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 is definitely one of the biggest ski resorts in Ontario.
What most people don’t know is that the area is just as popular in the summer months. From hiking and mountain biking to golfing and ropes courses, there’s something to do for every age and skill set. Also during the summer months, the Blue Mountain Village 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 many amenities such as grocery stores, banks and post offices, as well as a hospital less than 15 minutes away. There are plenty of locally-owned restaurants, cafes and shops located at the Blue Mountain Village. A short drive in town to Collingwood will offer more boutiques, department stores, large supermarkets, cinemas, and fine dining.
Blue 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. 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 area. Add in the amazing beauty that surrounds you in nature and it is clear to see why Blue 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.
