Know Before You Go: South Georgian Bay


You heard it here first. 2020/21 Lift Tickets are now available to purchase online for the coming winter. We’re one step closer to skiing and snowboarding at Blue Mountain!

Before you click BUY NOW, take a moment to read these important points:

⛰️ Secure Your Mountain Access. Buy In-Advance. This season, we do not expect walk-up lift tickets to be available. The only way to secure your mountain access at Blue is by pre-purchasing a lift ticket, online, in advance of your arrival.

⛷️ Masks are required. Face coverings are required in lift lines, on the magic carpet, and on the chairlift without exception, in addition to all indoor shared spaces.

❄️ Daily quantities are limited. If you have a day you’d like to ski or ride, lock in your lift tickets while inventory is available.

Now that you’ve been briefed on the most important points, head on over to our lift ticket calendar and start planning for your ski day today!
