What makes Blue Mountain the all-around perfect winter destination is the variety of activities and attractions offered to guests. If you are not a skier or snowboarder, don’t worry. There’s tons to do! Enjoy an evening sipping hot chocolate or savouring comfort food at one of the many village restaurants. One restaurant in particular that offers great Canadian fare is Kaytoo Restaurant and Bar. They have great burgers, fish ‘n’ Chips, and deep-fried pickles. Want to get adventurous? Why not try their signature cocktail- the Bacon Caesar? Enjoy the usual Caesar mix, but with a twist. Kaytoo’s creation includes maple vodka, a touch of syrup, and Worcestershire sauce, rimmed and garnished with maple bacon. If that doesn’t scream Canadian, I don’t know what does!
After a great meal, check out some of the incredible nightlife to sing karaoke or dance up a storm. Want a more relaxing alternative? Enjoy a cappuccino or specialty coffee watching the snowfall by one of the many communal fireplaces. After a great sleep in your suite, wake up bright and early to enjoy a day of winter activities including cross-country skiing nearby, snowshoeing through the many acres of wilderness, or ice skating on the new Woodview Mountaintop Skating Rink. Feeling like a more leisurely activity? Why not browse through the many exclusive artisan shops? Find that special one-of-a-kind necklace, hand-knit scarf, or piece of home décor suiting your mantle perfectly.
You’re on holiday! Why not get a little pampered and indulge in a few spa treatments? Head to the Scandinave Spa, the outdoor tranquil extravaganza of heated pools, infrared saunas, Finnish saunas, and steam rooms. Splurge with a Swedish massage before enjoying a hearty bowl of the café’s daily soup. For the yogis, why not head to IWA Spa and enjoy a revolutionary Yin class upon their volcanic rock, infrared ray infused floor. The combination of this stretching and muscle release class and your skiing/physical activities proves to be the perfect blend for an all-around soul-rejuvenating holiday. Finally, try one of the spa treatments inspired by nature at Kalola Spa.
