Winter is Back! Blue Mountain Opens On December 12th, 2012

Blue Mountain is set to open for the season tomorrow – Wednesday, December 12, 2012 (weather and conditions permitting). Temperatures have remained consistently cold the last few days, allowing Blue Mountain to ramp up its snowmaking efforts and blast the mountain with snow. Provided the current conditions remain steady, the Resort is on track to open the Silver Bullet and Easy Rider chairs at 9 a.m., with access to two runs, Tranquility and Easy Rider.

To kick-off the season, lift tickets will be sold for $19.00 + HST December 12-14, 2012 with Night Skiing scheduled to start on December 13, 2012. For skiers and snowboarders waiting for snow and colder temperatures to arrive before purchasing a Pass, now is a great time to get the popular 5x7® Pass at the discounted Anniversary Price of $259+HST – prices increase every Monday at 12 a.m. until January 6, 2013. Double Down Cards are also on sale until December 13, 2012 and are a great holiday gift option.

As Ontario’s only Mountain Village Resort, Blue Mountain has the province’s widest selection of on and off-hill activities including the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster and Plunge! Aquatic Centre. The Village has activities throughout December, including Family Fireworks every Saturday night, shopping, dining and night life. For winter enthusiasts looking for a quick getaway, Blue Mountain has great early-season accommodation packages including the Early Season Stay & Ski offer starting from $99.00*/night/person + HST/VAF based upon double occupancy in a Village Studio Suite. The Westin Trillium House has packages starting from $120.00*/night/person + HST/VAF based upon double occupancy in a Deluxe Guest Room.

New for 2012/13 Winter Season:
·         Snowmaking: Blue Mountain has Canada’s largest and most powerful snowmaking system and new upgrades improve the Resort’s total snowmaking capacity by approximately 10 per cent, and increase its ability to make more snow at warmer temperatures – as high as -2°C.
·         Badlands Terrain Park: New upgrades to the Badlands terrain park feature a new and improved all-snow superpipe. Once built, the superpipe will also be in a new location on the south end of the terrain park (beside the Apple Bowl trail). This change in location creates more space for the creation of new jump and rail lines. With emphasis on progression, a new fleet of rails will be installed, with some old favourites returning, to create a whole new riding experience this season. Snowmaking in the terrain park has also been upgraded.
·         Groomers: Addition of two new state-of-the-art Prinoth Groomers to further establish our fleet as one of Canada’s largest.
·         Events: New this year as part of Pepsi March Break Madness we will be hosting the SNOW Media showcase, a collaboration of photography, film and art from inspiring individuals who embrace the outdoor lifestyle. Check out our full winter events lineup at
·         Blue Mountain Inn Renovations: The final phase of renovations in the historic Blue Mountain Inn are schedule to be completed by 2013.  The completely remodeled rooms provide a fresh new look and feel, and establish the Inn as one of the area's most comfortable, modern and affordable lodging options.
·         Village Accommodations Refurbishments:  Blue Mountain's luxurious Village accommodations continue to undergo refurbishments to both design and in-room accessories.
