Reviews for Blue Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Stayed for the weekend spent about $700. Non of the activities were included had to pay extra to actually do activities which we found absolutely ridiculous. Also, we paid that much money to be able to have a parking spot; left for a few hours to go skating and came back to absolute chaos. Not impressed with the parking or the fact that you have spend hundreds even after you’ve spent so much just to be there for 2 days. Ridiculous. ... Full Review
tThey call it an Alpine resort, is a big stretch of imagination, when you get to the top you find farmers fields!
I don't know how they can call it blue mountain, there is no mountain.... Full Review
my son broke is collarbone on a small rail, because it wasn't waxed properly. (Slid, then stuck, throwing him)
While at the hospital his ski equipment was left at the hill. After getting home we noticed and filed a report (on line) as it was the only way to do so. We kept getting updates saying items not found, but they are still looking. Friends went up 2 weeks later and found the items. Funny how they took the same description and found it but emploies can't. Next day got another update saying they are still searching and items not found!! I found out, after 15-30 days the lost items are then disposed of, either donated (or taken??) Seems like a pretty good system for them, seeing that our items lost were over $600.
Also. We have someone else's equipment that was accidentally taken, and we are trying to reach out to the hill but nowhere to report a FOUND item. I don't have faith to return this item to lost and found but will reach out on multi media instead!... Full Review
Expert skiers will quickly get bored with very limited expert terrain. Long lineups on the weekends for a run that takes a couple of minutes, lack of parking along with over priced lift tickets make it hard to justify a trip up there. But if you want to ski in Ontario it's probably the best option.... Full Review
Some Ski and snowboard instructors very rude and unhelpful especially with very new beginners. Honestly looked like they couldn’t be bothered and were not fully training people before sending them off. If you don’t want to train, find a job elsewhere... Full Review
Great hill, Amazing views, If you want to skiing in ONTARIO this is the best resort... Full Review
This is the best skiing Ontario has to offer, no question. ... Full Review
Great hill, great resort for the area but worst guest services anywhere. took 2.5 hrs to organize a day of ski school for the kiddies and had to back and forth between sites endlessly. Very poor communication and overall process for most anything to get you on the hill. Once on the hill all is great, ski lift ops, patrols, people ! :)... Full Review
I may have a little bit of BC bias going on here, but I grew up on this hill so it was all I had known until I lived out west for a year and started making annual ski trips to BC/Alberta. Bottom line, Blue Mountain is terrible. It's an ant hill in comparison to anything you'll find out west. If you're going by yourself, or as a couple, save an extra couple of bucks and make your way to an actual hill. For $79, you can fly to Abbotsford from Hamilton or for a little more, fly to Calgary. From there, rent a car or take a bus to Fernie, Panorama, Lake Louise, Revelstoke, Kicking Horse (Calgary) or from Abbotsford, go to Whistler, Sun Peaks or Big White. Lift tickets on a Saturday for two people come to $220 per person! Insanely high prices for a terrible skiing experience. Everyone here thinks they are incredible skiers, so it's actually far more dangerous to ski here than anywhere else. Avoid if you can ... Full Review
