The Westin Trillium House and Blue Mountain offer five fun-filled school break escapes for families seeking holiday togetherness.  The time leading up to school break is so busy that it’s easy to let the holidays slip away without spending some quality family time. With most school holidays running December 24 to January 8, The Westin Trillium House and Blue Mountain invite families to get away during the break and spend some quality time with exciting winter activities that reach well beyond the ski hill.

“It’s wonderful when children are active in any way, and it’s even better when Mom and Dad can take part in the fun,” said Stacy Manning, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Westin Trillium House. “We always look forward to hosting families over the holiday and helping them curate their stay so it is as unique as they are!”

Blue Mountain is open for business, even though Mother Nature hasn’t been cooperating.  Of course there’s skiing and snowboarding and our new Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, but Blue Mountain offers families the widest selection of on and off-hill activities in Ontario, making it the perfect destination for families on a mission for fun. One option is the Active Pack, which allows guests to tailor their vacation to their unique styles.  Every family is different and Blue Mountain has the variety of activities to suit whatever their preferences may be:

The Adventure-Seeking Family

For the family that is always on a quest for a new adventure, Activity Central at Blue Mountain Village has just the thing. Test your navigational skills with a Compass Challenge Scavenger hunt or Village Family Challenge. Families can cheer each other on as they scale the climbing wall or cozy up together under a blanket and enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride.  Seeking even more thrills, take a Backcountry Hike in the beautiful Niagara Escarpment and enjoy the Evening Wolf Howl.  Adventurous families can visit the website for more holiday fun inspiration.

The Family H20

Though the water outside may be turning to icicles, families who want to make a splash can head to the water wonderland at Plunge! Aquatic Centre. Located only steps away from The Westin Trillium House, Plunge! families can relax in the hot tub, play on the rope swing or water slide. Mom and Dad can drop their kids off one of our Kids and Pre-Schooler Activity Zones and then enjoy some time together at the award-winning Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain for a special outdoor Scandinavian Baths experience.  Finish the day with a Beaver Valley Waterfall tour.

The Eclectic Family

Enjoy some creative together-time at Crock-a-Doodle located in the Village at Blue. Family members can design ready-to-paint pottery pieces into works of art that reflect their individuality. An afternoon at Crock-a-Doodle is all about hands-on fun and the perfect way to bring your winter holiday memories home. Blue Mountain’s Apple Pie Trail is also a wonderful and delicious way for families to enjoy the area’s local apple products including apple pies, treats, history and art. Add a taste of refinement as Mom and Dad take a romantic wine tour while the kids enjoy one of our fun Kids Camps

The Fast-Paced Family

Families looking for an activity that will get them having fun fast will have many options to choose from. The Ridge Runner- Ontario’s first Mountain Coaster puts each family member in the driver’s seat and lets them control their speed as they zoom down the escarpment. A day of skiing or snowboarding on Blue Mountains thirty-four trails is just one more way families can enjoy their holiday break together. Off the mountain there are a variety of activities to keep everyone busy including Backcountry Hummer Tours.

The Fitness Family

Winter offers lots of opportunity for fun family fitness, and Blue Mountain Village makes sure families have many choices to choose from. For a more unique experience families can go on a Winter Caving Tour where they are guided through unknown caverns by headlamp. For some indoor fun, families can enjoy daily yoga classes or head to the Monterra Tennis Dome. After all this activity families can head to one of the many restaurants in Blue Mountain Village that are proud to provide guests with healthy menu options.

With so many choices available to families, the Active Pack allows them to experience up to eight different activities at the great rate of $59. This allows them to do what interests them most and more importantly spend quality time together.
