Blue Mountain is a ski resort in Ontario, near the south shore of Georgian Bay, just outside the town of Collingwood. Though it's not much of a "mountain" by the standards of Rocky Mountains ski resorts or even the Laurentians, it's one of the biggest drops in southern Ontario. The resort bills itself as "the largest mountain resort in Ontario," and has a substantial village at the foot of the ski runs, with a dozen restaurants, a bunch of shops, and hotels. The Blue Mountain complex was developed by Intrawest, which explains the similarities to Banff. This portion of Ontario is part of the Niagara Escarpment, and the hills at Blue Mountain are the result of glaciers receding after the last ice age. The runs at Blue Mountain have a maximum drop of 720 vertical feet. There are 34 trails served by 13 lifts (including four high-speed six-person lifts). Night skiing is possible on 22 trails and 10 lifts. The Village has 19 restaurants/food shops, ranging from elegant dining to Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's. The Fire Hall tends to have fast, friendly service and reasonable prices. It's a pub-style pizza joint, and the food is good. There are, of course, dozens of shops selling ski and boarding equipment of all descriptions, as well as bunch of gift and knick-knack shops.
