Meaford, Ontario’s Winter Wonderland
People lucky enough to call Meaford home know that summer on the shore of Georgian Bay is great – but that winter may be even better. That’s because this charming town of 11,000 is only a 20-minute drive from Collingwood’s Blue Mountain. With Sinclair Homes’ new master-planned community in Meaford, Ontario you too can enjoy the year-round resort-style living by the shores of Georgian Bay.
As Ontario’s largest public ski area, wintertime in Blue Mountain is when the fun and adventure really ramps into high gear, on and off the slopes. Here are some of our favourite activities that make Blue Mountain an unforgettable winter wonderland.
Ski or Snowboard Blue Mountain
With 42 groomed trails, including a 720-foot vertical, you’ll love exploring the slopes of Blue Mountain. Whether you’re taking your first trip down the bunny hill, or are a seasoned pro ready to take on the terrain park, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views over Georgian Bay. And with 30 lit night trails, you can experience the thrill of skiing under the stars, too!
Ride the Ridge Runner
If you’re not a skier but still crave speed, check out Ridge Runner – a roller-coaster like ride that runs for more than one kilometer downhill. With plenty of twists and turns, this family-friendly adventure can reach speeds of up to 42 km/hr!
Looking for a downhill experience at a slightly slower pace? Blue Mountain offers four snow tubing tracks suitable for children aged three and older.
Skate on Top of Blue Mountain
This mountain-top skating trail takes you on a kilometer-long path through picturesque woods with spectacular views over Georgian Bay and the Niagara Escarpment. Just lace up your skates and enjoy the fresh Georgian Bay air.
Take a Sleigh Ride
Step back in time with an old-fashioned winter sleigh ride at Valley Ridge Family Farm. The hour-long ride winds its way to the top of the mountain, while you stay warm under blankets with a hot drink. You can book a winter sleigh ride on Valley Ridge’s Facebook Page.
Swim outside at Plunge! Aquatic Centre
There’s nothing quite like swimming in a heated pool while snowflakes dance overhead. With indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, rope swings, slides, and those traditional Muskoka chairs, Plunge! Aquatic Centre – located at the base of the ski hills – promises fun for the whole family.
Adults only at the Scandinave Spa
Step away from the hustle and bustle at the award-winning Scandinave Spa. Nestled on acres of maple, birch, and pine tree forest just outside of Blue Mountain Village, your stress will melt away in the hydrotherapy pools and saunas. If you’re a local, become a member to enjoy unlimited access!
