Traditionally, more than two million people visit Blue Mountain Resort every year; however, 2020 has been anything but traditional. “Nobody really knew what to expect in the spring,” she said. “What we did see, families were looking for a way to make memories together.”
She said the resort learned how to adapt and focused on controlling capacity, which is one of the key items this winter. Lovell said daily lift tickets will have to be purchased in advance and those numbers will be limited in an effort to control the number of people on the resort. “Management of capacity is still going to be a priority,” she said.
They will also have new rules for chairlifts, including loading guests in their social bubble and mask rules.

My childhood house in Parry Sound, Ontario, was so cold in the winter you had to flick bits of ice off the light switches in the morning before turning them on. The outdoors was a big part of my life growing up the late '50s and '60s and it toughened me up.
All indications are that water levels are going to be up sharply again this year. The Georgian Bay Association is providing timely and accurate information on current and projected water levels and will work with members and municipalities to share information on mitigation measures. Some septic systems, docks and low-lying structures are expected to be severely impacted.
GBA continues to keep a close eye on water levels this winter to provide timely and accurate advice to members and local municipalities on what to expect throughout 2020.
