What happens when a winter storm strikes?
You could bundle up and wish for the sun, or you could take on the snow and hit the slopes. For decades, that’s what many Ontarians have done at the Village of Blue Mountain. The resort is two hours north of downtown Toronto and along Georgian Bay. It gets 280 centimetres (110 inches) of snow each year, making it ideal for a ski and snowboard getaway.
During the deep chill and winter storms that tormented many parts of Canada last week, Blue Mountain enjoyed some fresh powder for its popular hills. This photo above was captured on Thursday morning, after the blizzard blanketed the region, delighting schussers — and this photographer. The snow covering the peaked roofs of the Blue Mountain chalets makes for a beautiful scene.
Its condo and townhouse accommodations feature cozy comforts and convenience to the ski hill and the attractions within the fabricated village. Along with a potent après-ski scene, the village has quality restaurants and a range of activities that non-skiers will enjoy.
