Mount St. Louis Moonstone

A not-so-secret motto behind some of the world’s most successful businesses is ‘do one thing, and do it really well’. Mount St. Louis Moonstone is a ski resort in southern Ontario that is dedicated to doing one thing exceptionally well: delivering epic downhill skiing and snowboarding adventures, from beginner level to the most advanced.

You’ll find over 35 ski slopes, including black diamond runs, some of the best freestyle terrain parks in Canada and a variety of upgraded, high-speed lifts designed to keep lines moving as fast as possible. Ski and snowboard lessons and programs, and rental equipment encourage beginners to get started, and their base lodge offers comfort after a full day on the slopes. Plus, their fleet of grooming equipment and snow-making capacity is second to none.

Located minutes south of the community of Coldwater, Mount St. Louis Moonstone sits in the centre of Ontario’s snow belt region. The ski facility is just off of Highway 400, a mere 25 minute drive north of Barrie and 25 minutes west of Orillia. It’s just 1.5 hours north of Toronto, which makes it a super convenient ski destination for skiers and boarders coming up from the city.
