’80s Throwback for Blue Mountain’s 80th

For Blue’s 80th anniversary, ML presents a deep-’80s photo showcase.

If there’s one thing Blue Mountain Resort has learned over the course of 79 winters, it’s that outside is where the action is. We agree wholeheartedly.

Their 80th winter may be interrupted by the Ontario stay-at-home order, but with safety protocols well in place and snowmaking going full-tilt, Blue will be ready for more downhill action soon. (As of writing, the earliest scheduled opening date is February 10.) In the meantime, click here to see what you can do at Blue.

And while you’re waiting, have a look back at some photographic memories of a more carefree decade. Colour-coordination might’ve been lacking in these ’80s shots, but high spirits were not!
