Keep Winter Cool Event (March 14th)

Representatives from the Environment Network, the Town of the Blue Mountains, and Blue Mountain Resort will also be on-hand so guests can learn more about how to Keep Winter Cool!
CHASING ICE FILM SCREENING FUNDRAISER
Blue Mountain is also pleased to announce that it is screening the highly acclaimed film “Chasing Ice” from the Producer of the Academy Award-Winning “The Cove”. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. The film follows an acclaimed environmental photographer and a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. It features hauntingly beautiful videos which compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
