We have been hearing whispers about expansion plans at Blue Mountain so it was very exciting to receive the official update about The Orchard this past weekend. Blue Mountain will officially open more terrain and new trails in the Orchard for the 2013/2014 winter season.
The Orchard expansion brings an additional 64 acres of terrain, a new high-speed, 6-person chairlift and six new trails which includes a 1.6km beginner run – the longest in Ontario. Snowmaking infrastructure and night lighting will also be added on 3 of the trails. The increased terrain provided by the Orchard expansion will bump Blue Mountain’s skiable terrain to 364 total acres across 42 trails – the most in Ontario.
