Your Itinerary for Adventure in Blue Mountain
Blue Mountain isn’t just a ski town. Take a trip to this idyllic mountain village — just two hours from Toronto — overlooking Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay for a fun-filled retreat with no snow required. Call The Westin Trillium House, Blue Mountain home base to discover all the resort has to offer, from stand-up paddle boarding to a high-flying coaster to spa renewal and much more.
9 a.m. | Take a Hike
Choose from four hiking trails on the Niagara escarpment that will lead you through dense and colorful foliage and incredible waterfalls. Then, rest your weary legs and ride the open-air gondola back down for 360-degree views of the alpine town and Georgian Bay.
1 p.m. | Roped In
Looking for a challenge? You’ve got options — high and low. Timber Challenge High Ropes has seven courses stretched between mountain vistas, while the Woodlot Low Ropes offers a lower-pressure way to dart across ropes, logs and beams.
4 p.m. | Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster
See the mountain and the Georgian Bay from speeds up to 26 miles per hour on the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster. Bonus: Your kids will love it (and can take the front seat!).
10 a.m. | Lazy Morning at the Pool
Fuel up with breakfast at Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill, then take up residence on a lounge chair at the pool. Soak in the heated pool (yes, year-round!) and make a dent in your much-neglected book. Or, bring the kids to Plunge! Aquatic Centre for a morning filled with water slides, splash pad and rope swing.
1:30 | Putt, Putt, Hike
Located just steps outside of the Blue Mountain Village, this 18-hole Cascade Putting Course is perfect for golf pros or families alike. Put your putting skills to the test while looking over the scenic Smart Alec ski run and Georgian Bay.
3 p.m. | Mountaintop Adventures
Grab your friends and zip down Blue Mountain on the Wind Rider Triple Zips, then channel your inner daredevil and jump from heights of 21 feet in the Apex Bagjump. Hoping for something a little less … daunting? Go off-road on a guided Mountaintop Segway Tour.
9 a.m. | SUP Beaver River
Grab some water and sunscreen, then paddle your way down Beaver River. Whether it’s in a canoe, kayak or paddle board is up to you! Take a 1- or 2-hour paddling tour to Heathcote with Free Spirit Tours; tour guide optional.
5 p.m. | Take an Evening Bath
The Finns have been using hot springs for centuries to relax the body and the mind. Immerse yourself in the hot baths and cold plunges at Scandinave Spa, just five minutes from Blue Mountain Resort.
9:15 a.m. | Yoga with a View
Head to iwa spa’s top-notch patio for this beginners-friendly energizing yoga class, filled with balancing, inversions and twisting poses.
11 a.m. | Explore a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve
Weave through one of Canada’s great natural wonders — Niagara Escarpment’s caves, carved by glacial ice for millions of years. You’ll hike deep through caves and crevices, then cross the iconic 420-foot suspension bridge with Scenic Caves.
3 p.m. | Go Beachside
When you’re tired of being on your feet, open up an umbrella at the Blue Mountain Beach Club. Wrap up your long weekend with specialty cocktails and warm waters in the club’s private beach.
