Monterra Golf Opens for the Season April 27

The grounds crew at Monterra Golf, at Blue Mountain Resort, has been working hard to make sure the greens are in tip top condition for opening day this Thursday, April 27 at 9AM. With a damp start to spring, preparing the course for the first tee off has been a waiting game.

As of the 27th, Monterra will be open seven days a week. Monterra will be kicking off the season with a spring special of $69 per player, per round. Pricing is applicable any day of the week until May 18th and includes the use of Monterra’s GPS-enhanced golf carts. For more information or to reserve a tee time, golfers can visit or phone 705-445-0231.

The opening of Monterra complements the resort-wide shift to green season activities. The Cascade Putting Course opened Easter weekend and will be available every weekend for guests along with the Woodlot Low Ropes and Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster. With the remaining summer attractions scheduled to open on Victoria Day Weekend, it won’t be long until the green season is in full swing at Blue Mountain Resort.

Blue Goes Green for Earth Day Blue Mountain Resort will be hosting an Earth Day movie screening in support of Environment Network’s Active and Safe Routes to School Program

BLUE MOUNTAINS, ON – April 17, 2017 –– In celebration of Earth Day and in anticipation of another fantastic biking season, Blue Mountain will be hosting a film screening in support of the local Environment Network’s Active & Safe Routes to School program. Blue Mountain is best known for its ski operation in the winter but has grown into a four-season destination that highlights natural features of the Escarpment to offer attractions to guests.

“Being the largest mountain village resort in Ontario comes with a heavy responsibility to plan and operate in cooperation with the environment,” says Lindsay Ayers, Director of Planning and Environment at Blue Mountain. “We are inviting the community to join in our efforts to make sustainable choices and support a cause that encourages just that.”

As the community puts away their skis and snowboards and gets ready biking season, Blue will be screening Bikes vs. Cars, a film that highlights the positive impact communities can have when they support alternative transportation. A fitting film to raise funds in support of the Environment Network’s program which aims to curb driving habits and instead find greener ways of getting around.  

“Getting outside and using human power vs. fossil fuels for transportation has so many positive outcomes.  The obvious reductions in emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, physical and mental health benefits but also the not so obvious; such as reduced congestion on our roads, and improved community connections.  It helps us all to get to know each other and feel less isolated after a long winter of grey days and hibernation.” says Michele Rich, Executive Director at the Environment Network. “The Environment Network will use funds raised to continue the Active and Safe Routes to School programming, specifically the Walk to School Bus and in-school programs.”

The film screening will take place on Earth Day, this Saturday April 22 in Weider Room at the Blue Mountain Inn. Tickets are $10 each and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Environment Network.
