Most Newfoundland tourist attractions are generally in full swing by June. Mother Nature has taken care of the snow and swept it away with warmer temperatures and somewhat warmer breezes from the Atlantic Ocean. By that time school is out allowing more people the opportunity to travel. Many of those Newfoundland tourist attractions are cultural and historical attractions. What about those tourist attractions which are recreational in nature? Think about ski resorts, boat tours, whale watching. What happens to those Newfoundland tourist attractions when the typical tourist season is over? Many conclude their business when winter takes over and open again for the summer season. Not so with one of the great Newfoundland tourist attractions found on the west coast of Newfoundland – MARBLE MOUNTAIN RESORT!
Marble Mountain Resort is really a four season resort located in the town of Steady Brook which is about a ten minute drive from Corner Brook. Not many Newfoundland tourist attractions can boast being open year round but at Marble Mountain Resort you can stay and play all year round. Marble Mountain is known as a world-class ski resort in winter with its 1,700-foot vertical drop and receives an average of 16 feet of snow most years. But what happens to this world class resort when winter disappears? Well Marble Mountain Resort is still a beehive of activity throughout the year.
If you are a summer outdoor enthusiast, Marble Mountain Resort can take care of all your exciting, adrenaline rushing adventurous needs! Wow, talk about an adventurer’s paradise! From skiing, hiking, high ropes course and zip lining, Marble Mountain Resort is the backdrop to some of the most exciting Newfoundland tourist attractions.
At the base of Marble Mountain resort, you will find a jungle of vertical poles, ropes, tires and wires. Take the Spider Challenge and climb 50 ft in the air until you reach the top of the high ropes course, also known as an obstacle course, where you will experience breathtaking panoramic views of Marble Mountain and the beautiful Humber Valley. Unlike some Newfoundland tourist attractions, this one opens as soon as winter takes leave of her grip on the area and remains open until late fall when inclement weather could pose a safety issue. Make a booking for the Spider Challenge at Marble Mountain lodge.
After testing and conquering your courage and skill on the Spider Challenge, you can also experience the ride of a lifetime as you go ziplining 285 feet over Steady Brook Falls. The great thing about ziplining at Marble Mountain resort is that you can do this year round. There is no down time unless stopped by the weather. At Marble Mountain lodge you will be provided with all the required equipment needed for a safe but exhilarating ride. Your experience begins near the top of the mountain, taking you through eight zip lines over the falls, zigzagging from one platform to another down the gorge until you reach the base of the mountain again. Experience spectacular views of Marble Mountain, the falls and surrounding town of Steady Brook and the Humber River.
