It’s Valentine’s Day and I Love Food (Blue Mountain Review)
A couple weekends ago, I packed up the Prius and headed to Blue Mountain for a winter adventure.
I have spent many wintery afternoon on the hills, but it was a treat to be able to stay at a lodge by the base of the hill. I stayed in a suite in Weider Lodge, which opens right up at the lift of a main ski lift. It doesn’t get more convenient than that! I also loved that I could park underground and take an elevator directly to my room.
The decor was perfect for the surroundings – it had a very rustic and historical feel to it with a fabulous view of the slopes from the windows.
I had every intention of trying out the little kitchen the first night, but I ended up running too long and my hunger had the best of me, so instead of venturing out to get supplies, I ate at the resort.
And yes, that is correct, the first thing I did upon arriving at the resort was search out the exercise room and get my training over with. I was planning on relaxing!
The exercise room was awesome and the tv was perfectly positioned. My workout lasted about 2 hours and they absolutely flew by! I am not a big tv watcher, so it was fun to have time to take it in.
I had a chance to venture around the village that evening; Blue Mountain is absolutely stunning at night!
Speaking of stunning, let’s talk food.
I had the opportunity to sample food from different locations around the resort. I was excited to try the Pottery Restaurant for breakfast. I am a sucker for breakfast buffets and I went nuts for this one.
I had bacon, eggs and peanut butter toast (favourite vacation breakfast!) but they had a huge variety of hot and cold breakfast items, including house made granola.
Another meal I was able to have was at Firehall Pizza. I ordered the BBQ Pizza and oh. my. gosh.
Mesquite BBQ sauce, cheese, chicken, red onion and cheddar cheese.
It was in such a cool location – a sports bar that is decorated as a fire house. The atmosphere was fun and the food was amazing. Like most, pizza places, if you are not a fan of pizza, there is plenty more on the menu.
My last meal at Blue Mountain could be my last meal ever and I would be happy. It also could be titled “This is why I run…”
I had dinner at Copper Blues and I probably had one of the best meals of my life.
Firstly, they brought freshly baked bread drizzled in balsamic vinaigrette and olive oil and I was all over that.
I had been snowboarding, skating and running hard all day so it was exactly what I was craving.
So..I ordered the surf and turf and it was a dream. I take my steak medium-rare and my lobster with butter.
Ridiculous meal and it disappeared in about 10 minutes.
Now, you may have a hard time believing this…but I always save room for dessert.
Even after eating a lobster and half a cow.
And when the waitress said they had chocolate creme brulee, I knew I was up for the challenge.
“Bring me the strongest coffee you can and let’s do this.” I said.
So they brewed a fresh pot and set this in front of me.
Ugh. So so SO good. You know when you finish a perfect meal and all you can do is smile? That was me after this meal. I highly recommend Copper Blues if you want to finish your day on the slopes with a bang.
So there you have it. I slept like a baby and ate like a queen.
Have you every eaten at the Pottery Restaurant, Copper Blues or the Fire Hall? What did you think?
What would your last meal on earth be if you could chose?
Ok, it’s 9:45am and now I’m hungry… 😉

Oooooh my goodness. This looks epic! Next time you go, I will happily be your date! I’ve never been to Blue before, but that gym looks absolutely beautiful, the food stunning (especially the surf n turf!) and the bed like one I’d love to collapse on right now! So happy you got to do this – what a great, totally well-deserved getaway!
Let’s plan it now! 😀

I cannot even properly explain how good it is!
This resort looks beautiful!
My last meal would probably look a whole lot like that pizza you had!
Ha! The pizza was just so so good. Fabulous choice!
