Here are a few highlights from the year that was at Blue Mountain Resort:
· November 2012: Blue Mountain completed the installation of new snowmaking upgrades that improved the Resort’s ability to make more snow at warmer temperate and further solidified its snowmaking system as the largest and most powerful in Canada. Blue Mountain will make similar investments during the 2013 summer.
· February 1-2, 2013: Blue Mountain hosted the FIS Snowboard Cross World Cup event. Spectators cheered on the Canadian team as they took home the Gold Medal in the men’s event.
· February 17, 2013: Blue Mountain announced the $10-million terrain expansion of the Orchard area for the 2013/14 winter season. The expansion provides skiers/snowboarders with six new trails, 64 acres of new terrain and a new 6-person, high-speed chairlift.
· April 25, 2013: The Resort set a record for the latest day of skiing/snowboarding ever at Blue Mountain, surpassing the previous record of April 24th set in 2010/11.
