While many of us are waiting for winter to end, others are just getting warmed up. March Break is the season of the mega contest in Ontario. With primo conditions on the slopes plus the much-needed time off during the break, many of Ontario’s youth flock to the hills for a few last runs. If you’re looking for excitement this March Break, look to Blue Mountain: the world-class resort will be playing host all week to the Sony SnowCrown Ski & Snowboarding Festival, presented by Rockstar Energy Drink.
