Blue Mountain Village Events

MLK Ski Weekend @ Blue Mountain Resort

*The goal of World Snow Day is to encourage children, families and everyone to take part in snow related activities like skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and other physical activities outside in the snow (but not too active if you don’t want to be!). There are opportunities for all levels of skill in all these activities, right down to no experience. In fact, if you’re new to snow, this IS the day for you to get outside and try something new while having fun. *

Moonlit Snowshoe Event Details

Oh and it’s also the night of the Super Blood Wolf Moon.

We also feel you should know that there is a special rare cosmic event this weekend that will make night snow activities pretty cool. On Sunday January 20, going into Monday January 21st, there will be a lunar eclipse. This night there is also a super wolf moon. The full wolf moon will be at it’s closest point of orbit to Earth. A super moon will appear larger and brighter and this case, red.

The next super lunar eclipse is in 2021.

The eclipse will be visible to much of the Western Hemisphere, including Canada, the U.S., Mexico and South America on Sunday, Jan. 20, and finish early Monday, Jan. 21 (ET time).
