Default Blue Mountain, Collingwood ontario, cdn. - out of bounds

i noticed that new runs they cut years ago, (and posted signs - OUT OF BOUNDS),on the south end of the resort have gone unused season after season (nothing construction wise happened this summer). I plan on accessing/hiking them this season, has anyone else tried or know any info on them?

blue's trail map


the 6 new runs

We decided to park at the top this year, rather than in the cramped parking lots at the bottom like suckers... figured that way soon as we strap we can drop.. you know how long the lift lines tend to get. Don't know if you know the parking lot up top I'm referring too.. but I suspect there might be access to the out of bounds from there...

I'm still waiting for the 10/11 Trail map to be released though.. the one on their site is listed as 09/10 for now

if you go down the green run on the far left, there is a bit of an off shoot into some 'enchanted forest' crap. You can get to one of them from there pretty easily. They aren't anything special but there was some OK powder.

..and I had no idea you could park 'at the top' and I've been going there for a few years. wtf?

the "lot" at the top (if you can call it that), is large enough for maybe 20 cars max., it's close to the beaver tails hut they setup a couple years back. Most the spots are usually gone by 10am on wknds. Regardless, it is nice to park up there and avoid the ciaos at the base area.

GREAT idea, until you're stuck on the Northside, and you realize it's 4:25pm (been there a few times... I hate traversing @ Blue)

I'm down to hike it, I've always wondered what those extra trails were... I think they're lacking the money for a lift.

Lemme know when u go!
