About Us

What’s New At Blue?

As we enter our 45th ski season, we can’t wait to share our new look with you! The Blue Mountain Resort story begins in 1977 as “Little Gap Ski Area”. As our mountain grew, our identity grew into the Blue Mountain Resort you know and love today. Much careful consideration and thoughtful elements went into designing our newest look. We kept in mind our mountain’s rich history, while capturing where we are today and where we are going as we continue to develop into a four-season outdoor destination. The end result is our new softened yet authentic mark that conveys the our adventuresome and welcoming spirit.

The arch represents the minimalist mountain view, unmatched views of sunrises and sunsets, and a nod to the Victorian architecture found in our neighboring town, Jim Thorpe.

The top line of the mountain symbolizes the landscape of Little Gap. The different levels depict the endless mountain views from our unique mountain-top facility, as well as the variety of things you can do at Blue Mountain- whether it’s a tranquil escape, an exhilarating rush, or simply a deep breath of crisp mountain air.

Our new color palette is inspired by the colors found in the natural landscape with the colorful architecture in Jim Thorpe.

Together, the elements capture our resort’s easy elegance and stunning natural beauty.

New for the 2022/23 season, we’re installing a new Leitner Poma 6 Passenger High Speed Lift- Main Street Express! Starting in the Valley and ending at the top of the Main Street Trail, the lift will improve connectivity between lodges while replacing our two previous double chairs- Main Street and Burma. Main Street Express is able to move 3,000 passengers per hour from bottom to top in 4.5 minutes.

You can own a piece of Blue Mountain history! Few chairs from the Main Street and Burma double chairlifts remain.
