After one of the toughest ski seasons Eastern Canada has faced, Blue will be the only Ontario ski resort open midweek this week when it opens for skiing and riding today and one of the last resorts in the province with open ski runs this weekend. The Resort will remain open through the weekend and is inviting all alpine-enthusiasts to sendoff what has been a truly exceptional season for the ski industry.
"We know it has been an exceptional winter for all Ontario resorts," says Tara Lovell, Manager, Public Relations. "The team at Blue was able to leverage other Resort offerings when skiing and snowboarding were not feasible, but after a season like this one, it only seems right to celebrate with the skiers and riders that were with us through a challenging winter."
The Resort had its latest opening day on record in December and, for the first time, re-opened green season attractions at the beginning of the holiday season. Blue Mountain will not have a record-breaking year for days on snow but will certainly be shy of the 147 open ski days the Resort had in 2013-2014.
"We have received a lot of feedback from our guests about the season," says Chris Lewis, VP Resort Services, Operations. "Skiers and snowboarders share our passion for winter and it was tough to stay positive when it seemed like Mother Nature just wasn't going to give us the winter we all hope for."
To celebrate the end of an atypical winter, Blue Mountain will be doing something it has never done before by welcoming all current season passholders to the hills for every remaining day of the season. "No restrictions, no matter what kind of season pass you have," says Lewis. "We are hoping this gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy spring skiing in Ontario."
For those who do not have a season pass, lift tickets will be $29 for adults and $19 for youths and seniors. Also available are early bird season passes for next season which will allow guests to ski for $15 any day for the remainder of this season as well.
Blue Mountain will be open for skiing and riding as of Wednesday, April 6 through to Sunday, April 10. The Resort will potentially re-open for the following weekend as well but this will, as always, depend on weather and conditions.
