  • I've skied across Canada and Europe. I can honestly say, Mt St. Louis Moonstone has the worst customer service I've ever experienced at any ski resort.  more »
  • Moonstone is a small ski hill just north of Barrie. It's decent enough. It's kind of expensive concidering Blue Mountain which is much larger is pretty much the same price. This ski hill is exceptiona...  more »
  • I've just purchased my fourth yearly membership in a row, since they added night skiing. There is a great lift system to keep the lines moving, and wide open hills to spread out the clouds. Night skiing is amazing on the moonstone Adventure Express lift! I prefer this to Blue mountain. While it is smaller, it is much quieter. The crowds and especially lifties are so friendly!
  • This is one of the best mountains in southern Ontario, period! If you're shocked at the price of anything then obviously you haven't been to a ski hill before. The only thing they could do to make this place better is make is less busy. A suggestion would be to only sell so many lift tickets per day as they are starting to implement at much larger resorts out west. If you go on a weekday it's much more relaxed with very small chairlift lines.
  • Everyone at Mount St. Louis Moonstone care about providing skiers and snowboarders a memorable experience. The snow conditions are really good thanks to the snow-making staff and groomers, and the snow parks look pretty sick. Hats off to everyone involved in keeping the hill in such great condition. If you are looking to take a lesson, the ski school staff are super friendly, and really narrow in on the areas that will help you build confidence and elevate your skill level. The other great thing is the location. Just over an hour from Toronto, and just off the 400 makes it ideal and really easy to get too.
  • Great venue that delivers a fun, family ski experience. They have the best lift service in Ontario so you can actually spend your time on the doors rather than in line. Their snow making capabilities are also exceptional. To top it off, their lighting for night skiing is top notch. The chalet is nothing fancy but gets the job done. Bring your own food if you want healthy options.
  • I really enjoyed this hills. It was less busy when compared to Blue Mountain. The hills were well groomed.
