Postcard from Blue Mountain
Winter weekends with small kids can feel as endless as a Russian novel. When spring is still ages away, the snow-covered wonders of your local playground can wear thin pretty fast. Unless, of course, the snow is falling somewhere else. Just two hours north of Toronto, Blue Mountain Village is a great escape for rekindling your romance with winter. Staying at The Westin Trillium House on the mountain sets the scene nicely. Within moments of arriving in our mountain-view suite, my husband has lit the fireplace and Esme, five, and Julian, two and a half, are happily curled up on the couch watching the night skiers shush down the mountain face. From this vantage point, winter’s as charming as a snow globe.
