Mississauga member checking in.. I ride at Glen Eden after work during the week as I work 15 minutes from there and I'm usually at Blue on weekend nights and the occasional weekend day.

I'll be up at Glen all day Friday this week, then at Blue on Sunday night and all day/night on Monday!

its pretty decent for what it is..

its right off the 401 west of toronto in milton...

its pretty nice riding actually, i liked italot when i was there last, the parking lot looked jammed, but the hills didnt seem too bad at all....

for a day or night something local, i would recommend it.

i drive from london area to go there...

It's a good place to practice on weeknights if you can get there after work. It's not very big and on the weekends it is ridiculously packed. I got a 5x7 pass for $149 early bird price and have been riding after work as much as I can.

Glen eden has a 5x7 pass now? And for anyone still curious about it, its probably one of the smallest hills around. Its got a half decent park though if you are learning and looking to progress.

I am in Stoney Creek (Hamilton)I rode glen Eden once a few weeks back. Small and over crowded. Blue is decent but the best option for me is Holiday Valley in NY. Makes Blue Mountain look like a bunny hill. only 2 hours away and much more fun and way more runs

Looking forward to heading back in a few weeks with my new Forum Grudge 154

Heyyy

I'm a high school kid from Toronto (north york).

honestly though, i hate all the GTA places. they all suck and are too small. The worst would be uplands lol. One ski lift that is super long and takes 30 min to get on.. then u go down the black diamond awhich lasts half a second.

I only actually have fun when i go to Blue mt.

St louis /moonstone is ok... i can "tolerate" it. Horse shoe is only good because of the glades they have lol.

I've only been to tremblant once. damn i wana go agian for this march break march 16-20!!!!! anyone wana hook up? i got a facebook event goin. if you wana join in (so its cheaper for everyone,) message me

Thanks for the heads up about Holiday Valley. Been looking for new places nearby as I'm getting tired of Blue. Seems to be suffering from its over-development...way too many people & icy, mashed up runs. Now I really have a reason to renew my passport

Haven't been to Glen Eden yet, although its closest to where we live. Anyone been to Craigleith (sp?) or Devil's Elbow? Opinions?

Went to St. Louis/Moonstone last week, and although its smaller than Blue, conditions were way better! It snowed all day & not a lot of people...even ballsed it out on the black runs! Have to say, I liked it a lot better than Blue.

Heading to Horseshoe on Sat for the first time with a group from my husband's work. Since we're no pros yet, we can still find excitement in the little hills ON has to offer

And even though I just bad-mouthed Blue, we're heading up there on Sun, too. Meh, we got 2 for 1 coupons & winter's winding down...I'm just happy to get out as much as I can

How was Horseshoe? I have been there once although it was a long time ago. I am heading back to Holiday Valley this weekend. I am going to take my new Forum Grudge out for the day. Can't wait
