In an otherwise flat province in the 1940s these scenic hills with wonderful views out to the lake were developed into a ski resort, which is now the 3rd busiest in Canada. To support the keen skiers Blue Mountain established a picturesque village centre at the base of the mountain with a wide selection of restaurants and boutiques; over time it has developed into a destination for a fabulous variety of summer outdoor activities too.
