Mt St Louis-Moonstone

Ski resorts in Canada
Since December 1964, the Mt St Louis-Moonstone ski resort has offered alpine fun just an hour north of Toronto, Ontario. It has a small footprint compared to other winter resorts, but it is well-equipped to handle skiers and snowboarders throughout the Winter. The venue offers quality instruction and access for almost everyone through association with the Province's adaptive program.

Traveling here by car involves using the Toronto-Barrie Highway (Highway 400) north of Toronto and Barrie. That places the winter venue between Lake Simcoe and the Georgian Bay of Lake Huron. Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport handles flights in the area and has plenty of ground services that flyers can rent to finish the trek to the ski resort.

A Must-Do for Tornoto Skiers/Riders


The Mt St Louis-Moonstone ski area is well-known in the Toronto area due to its location and reputation for good downhill conditions. Its location creates the cold and snowy winters in the region, but temperatures can fluctuate. An average annual snowfall of 120 inches can melt between storms when temperatures climb above freezing. The resort maintains snowmaking equipment and grooming vehicles across the venue to help maintain good downhill conditions.

The Mt St Louis-Moonstone does not offer overnight accommodations, but there are several lodging options nearby. There are simple amenities on-site, but skiers and snowboarders will want to look elsewhere for apres-ski experiences. Rentals are available here, but guests must purchase these online ahead of time (Rossignol and Burton are the brands of choice here).

The staff can also perform maintenance and tune-ups on personal gear. Certified Ski Patrol provides comfort and safety to visitors at the Mt St Louis-Moonstone ski area, and the instructors are also certified to teach. An eight-week program stands out here, along with the private and semi-private sessions (participants in private and semi-private lessons must be 12 years of age or older).

Ownership and staff pride themselves on providing a good experience for everyone, so partnering with the Ontario Track3 Ski Association makes sense. It helps kids and youth with disabilities experience pleasure with alpine activities. Service animals and support persons are also welcome at the winter facilities (with notable exceptions, like animals in the food court).

Downhill Fun Between the Lakes


The Mt St Louis-Moonstone ski area has a base elevation of 748 feet and a summit that reaches 1,253 feet. Its 505-foot vertical rise provides plenty of potentials down the slopes but makes the terrain here more forgiving than other mountains in the Province. That helps keep this the home to Ontario's largest beginner terrain area, including the Moonstone learning area.

Terrain ratings at the Mt St Louis-Moonstone ski area include green/beginner (11 alpine trails), blue/intermediate (16 runs), and black diamond/advanced (nine ski/ride trails). The longest run here is 6,562 feet in total length, which is enough for family and friends out for fun.

The Mt St Louis-Moonstone stands out for its lift system. Considering its size and runs, there are 11 lifts available here to keep guests moving uphill. Four snowparks offer a variety of progressive terrain for those looking for features to navigate at Mt St Louis-Moonstone.
