BLUE MOUNTAINS, ON – November 14, 2019 – After the GTA and ski country received its first substantial snowfalls and sustained colder temperatures for snow-making, Blue Mountain Resort is now open for its 79th ski season on Friday, November 15th, making it the Resort’s earliest opening day on record.
“A burst of cold weather that allowed for snowmaking along with natural snowfall have made it possible to open limited runs before the usual ski season begins,” explains Jackie Paduano, a member of Blue Mountain Resort’s PR team.
