'13/'14 season at Blue mtn., collingwood

it's that time of year and our southern Ontario brains are kicking into snow mode with news of snow falls out west.

for those not following Blue on twitter or other forms of media i thought i'd share this.

They've finally installed the towers for the new orchard section at the resort. Cables should be hung soon and chair installs to follow before the flakes start flying.

Optimistic for another great season!
hope to see you up there!

Same as every run at Blue. Flat then a drop, then a step, then a drop, then a flat to the lift...

Ah the beautiful fall colors of Ontario. Reminds me of the days when I used to drive from Hamilton up to Waterloo University on the backroads. Thanks for the nice pic.

When I was riding last year they felt like typical blue trails for blue Mtn, not as steep as the north runs, with the profile described above. Doesn't matter, another 6 traiks will help a little with crowding.
