Trail Conditions Update

The unique biological make-up and high clay content of the Niagara Escarpment makes Blue Mountain Bike trails quite vulnerable to rain and weather conditions.

Safety of our riders is our number one priority, as is protecting the sustainability of our trails and the ecological balance of the surrounding environment. Standard operating procedures exist for the opening and closing of our mountain bike trails and ensure these factors are considered.

Directly following a weather event involving rain the trails are inspected by either the Blue Mountain Trail Crew or Bike Patrol. The decision to delay opening due to unfavourable conditions may be made after this inspection.

We recognize that this delay in information can be an inconvenience to our guests; therefore we thank you in advance for your patience.

Updates to trail weather conditions and closures will be posted on our website.

To ensure the safety of our guests on the trails, we have some minimum requirements and recommendations for the type of equipment used in the Blue Mountain Bike Park. If your equipment does not meet these minimum requirements, you will not be permitted to board the gondola.
