Winter is Here (Posted On: Thursday, January 14, 2016)

Blue Mountain is known for hosting festivals and events during the summer months but on Saturday, January 23rd, the Resort will host its first winter festival: Celebrate Winter. This new festival is designed to celebrate all things snow including the fun of the Village with the sport of the Mountain.

"Winter is here!" says Tara Lovell, PR Manager at Blue Mountain Resort. "We were all anxiously awaiting the season and Blue Mountain is ready to celebrate everything that winter has to offer."

Blue had its latest opening day on record on December 30th but thanks to proactive on-hill preparations and the Resort's advanced snowmaking technology, the hill is now open end-to-end with nearly all of Blue Mountain's 42 ski runs open for skiing and riding.

"The Village is looking its best with a fresh blanket of snow, especially at night with the lights on the slopes and on the trees," notes Patti Kendall, Director of Marketing & Events for the Blue Mountain Village Association. "While we normally run events in the warmer months the pedestrian design of our Village, fire pits and outdoor stage are fun and safe for families."

Celebrate Winter will kick off at 9:00 a.m. where locals and guests alike can spend a full 12 hours outside enjoying all that the season has to offer including skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowshoeing and even a winter scavenger hunt through the Village. Afternoon fun includes a tour through the Village on the MJ Byrne's Horse & Wagon rides, maple taffy on snow, ice wine, local apple and cider sampling, interactive groove dancing and ice and wood carving. Once the sun sets, look forward to a Fire & Snow party featuring Glow Groove Dancing, a torch light parade down a ski run, fire dancing and fireworks.

"The wait is over and we are inviting everyone to join us in celebrating the snow," says Lovell. "Bundle up, embrace the season, and get outside with us at Blue."

The complete list of winter activities taking place during Celebrate Winter can be found online at the village website.  Guests should also be reminded to call 1-877-445-0231 for snow and attraction updates.
