Mr. C and I celebrated his birthday at Blue Mountain Resort.
I’m not sure if it’s the season that made me fall in love with the resort but everything about it is picturesque. ♥ Plus, we only spent for the gas.
Everything else in this trip was for free! Yes, free!
It’s a three-hour drive from Toronto. We didn’t mind the long drive because the scenery during fall is captivating.
I mentioned earlier that this trip was for free. We used our accumulated SPG points to book a room in The Westin Trillum House, Blue Mountain. During check-in, we were given free overnight parking and free breakfast for 2 because the hotel was unable to give us the late checkout we requested. (The late checkout option is one of the perks of being a platinum preferred guest).
Our room was very nice. It had its own kitchen and living room with a fireplace. It had a balcony with the Blue Mountain Village view.
We woke up early to take advantage of the scenery and have the Blue Mountain Resort to ourselves. It was absolutely, worth it! ♥
This hike was the highlight of our trip – whether it’s the view or the adrenaline rush. The slope got steeper and steeper as we got higher. It came to the point where we cannot turn back. I thought I was going to collapse and fall in the middle of our hike. We pushed to reach the top ’cause we know the view will be worth it and there’s also no other way unless you want to fall.
Blue Mountain Resort has planned events all throughout the year. When we went there, it was Fall Festivity. Make sure to check their calendar if you’re planning to go there. They decorate the village and have several activities planned for the day.
There are so many activities you can do here in Blue Mountain Resort, whether it’s winter or not. You just have to pay for the passes. We’ll make sure to snowboard or ski when we return here. *crosses fingers*
*Update: We returned this winter and finally got the chance to ski! See post here.
Pin it for later!
