Blue Mountain Resort, Collingwood, Ontario: Ontario skiers flock to the Collingwood area for daytime and nighttime skiing on Blue Mountain’s 36 runs and 3 freestyle terrains. It’s the third most popular ski resort in Canada, after Whistler Blackcomb and Mount Tremblant though the vistas are much less dramatic.

For the non-skier: slide down the escarpment in the Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster at more than 40-km-per-hour, or opt for skating at the Mill Pond Rink or toboggan tours.
For the kids: The Kids at Blue Mountain Ski Program fills up so book early.
