Celebrating our Ambassadors and Assisting the Next Generation

We were there for their first lessons and watched them make their first turns on the slopes. Today we offer our full support to local athletes who grow up to participate in the competitive circuit and chase media coverage across the province, country and the world.

The purpose of the athlete support program is to assist aspiring athletes who train out of Blue Mountain Resort. Senior team athletes will be provided with a complimentary 2017/2018 Blue Mountain Seasons pass, development athletes will receive a 50% discount off their seasons pass.

Athletes will be expected to report monthly with a summary of their contest or race results, social media presence and any additional media coverage. In additional Blue Mountain Resort will provide each athlete with opportunities to be involved with resort videos, photoshoots and other media initiatives.
