I wanna go to the Blue for some snowboarding this Saturday or Sunday. Who offers the bus service there? Price? Time?

Thanks!

Call Greyhound Canada @ 1-800-661-8747.

They have busses that leave the Bay St terminal @ 8AM (arrive at appx 11AM) and depart the ski hills @ appx 4:30PM.

The cost is appx $35 round trip.

Keep in mind blue wont sell afternoon tickets til its acually the after noon (I think 12:30 but dont quote me on that) so depending if the bus is early or late you'll only get a half day in.

Personally I wouldnt bother going to blue, I just got back from whistler 3 days ago :) Anyone whos been there will understand where Im coing from.

its probably $35 each way. Sounds about right, used to pay about that to get up to wasaga.

Mout St. Louis Moonstone also has a bus and they are WAYYY closer then blue.

It'll cost $34.14 to cover both ways.

Leaves 610 Bay St. at 8:00am and Yorkdale at 8:30am

You have to transfer busses or something like that to get to Blue.

$70 is too high. I don't trust their web site. Best for you to call them to confirm. I was told appx $35.

LOL Dagmar? Are you kidding? Don't go there unless you're a very very beginner.
It takes about 10 seconds to go down. It's a friggin hill for crying out loud.

Saw a flyer at Mountain Co-op for bus and lift packages to Blue Mountain and Horseshoe Resort.

I can't comment on their service as I have not used them, but here is their website if you are interested.

www.torontosnowbus.com

As for the Greyhound, it is around $35 dollar but it is not a direct route. They stop at different places along the way.

schedule

Hope this helps.

I agree... I was there once just because it was close... there were grass patches, ice patches everywhere... Blue has some ice patches... but its like comparing a bmw and an echo

Thanks.
I went to the blue. Round trip is 34.14. Trips are way too long. They stop everywhere. 3.5 hours each way is way too much. They should create an express route. At least 1.5 hour is wasted on those useless long stops. Damn!!

Departure is 8 am to the Blue and 4.30pm from the Blue.

Where the hell is the nigh bus??? Something that departs around 10pm from the blue! Damn X2

So you got only 4 hours of skiing for $34 bus fare + $50 lift ticket?
How much did it cost you per run? :cheesygri

Sorry.
Could not resist.
