Blue Mountain

We drove up to Blue Mountain as part of my Christmas present. The plan was to take the kids to the tube park while mommy got to pick out a beautiful wool sweater made in Nepal. Insert hot chocolate, outdoor fire pits and dinner in there somewhere. Of course, you know what they say about the best laid plans.

We got lost on the way up thanks to a navigation system that showed a bunch of accessible roads, which were not in fact open in the winter. Coupled with 2 children who had clearly had enough of the long car ride and the ferocious winds howling through the Village, we lasted 2 hours and were on our way home.

I have to say, for families that are not able to ski/snowboard because of little ones, there is very little to do in the Village of Blue Mountain. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. They closed the tube park permanently. The horse drawn carriage rides were not operating and there is NOTHING else to do with children. Maybe next time we'll spend some time downtown Collingwood, any suggestions?
