As the weather begins to heat up, so does the action at Blue Mountains beach resort located on the shore of pristine Georgian Bay.

What to do in Blue Mountains

Going to a ski resort is not much fun unless you are a skier or snowboarder. However, Blue Mountain still has plenty to offer away from the slopes.

Why not try some old-fashioned winter fun, tubing down the specially designated slopes? Or, if you have never tried it before, get revved up with a snowmobile tour of the backwoods before cutting loose on acres of freshly fallen snow.

Other winter activities include ice skating on Mill Pond, romantic sleigh rides through the woods and backcountry snowshoe treks!

Summer fun means golf, tennis, mountain biking, and flying through the trees on the Wind Rider zip line, or riding in an open-air gondola ride to the top of the Niagara Escarpment.

For more relaxing options, spend the day at Blue Mountain’s private beach or tour one of the local wineries to sample the best of Canadian wine. Hit the Ontario Apple Trail that features 30 stops as you look to find the perfect cider and pie.
