APRÈS SNOW HOW-TO. LESSON 5: THE NIGHTLIFE

After a day on the slopes, keep the momentum going well into the night with music, entertainment and … ping pong?

Blue Mountain is Ontario’s most recognized snow destination and keeps ski & snowboard fanatics fuelled with 36 trails on over 250 acres of varying terrain (25 available for night skiing) with 15 lifts, including four high-speed.

Known for mixing original cocktails like the Pink Beaver, the Razzamatazz and the ‘Hail Rusty’s’ Caesar, Rusty’s at Blue also hosts a line-up of live acts on weekends and usually ends the night with a light show over the dance floor.

Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at Jozo’s Original Après, a popular hangout in the Blue Mountain Inn. Special events include open mic nights and live shows, or just catch the hockey game on the big screens.
