Zoom Down a Hill
When my wife and I tied the knot, we had neither time nor budget for a trip south.
To be fair—true Canadians we—we didn’t mind a bit of winter fun and we’d already spent countless hours on the slopes here at Blue Mountain.
Long story short, we spent our first full day of marriage here too.
Even if you don’t ski you’ll have a blast making friends with winter: I’ll never forget the sheer hilarity of watching my wife, while I rode up the chairlift, crash into a snow fence at the bottom of a bunny hill.
(First note to the wise: never laugh at a time like this.)
Second note to the wise: if you know how to ski—head to Blue Mountain North: shorter lines and, because there are only advanced runs here, you don’t have to avoid beginners.
Great ski and snowboarding school if you want to learn the sport and it’s Ontario’s biggest hill.
Vertical of 700 plus feet and 30 plus runs with more to come this winter, along with two terrain parks for boarders or mere hot dogs.
