Make It One of Your Top Places to Visit in Newfoundland!
Are you gearing up for winter yet? If you love winter and snow, Marble Mountain Resort should be on top of your list of places to visit in Newfoundland. Even if you don’t downhill ski, there are so many other exciting and fun things to do in and around Corner Brook in the winter. Bring your family, your friends, or come alone and discover all the fun waiting for you.
Marble Mountain is located just outside Corner Brook on the west coast of Newfoundland. We enjoy an average of 16 feet of snow each winter, along with the longest ski season in eastern Canada—usually opening around Christmas and closing mid-April. So what do you get when you choose Marble Mountain Resort as your winter destination? Let’s take a look.
Bring the whole family and go downhill skiing on any of the 39 runs catering to all skill and ability levels. With very little wait time for any of the lifts, your day will be full if you plan to cover the approximately 225 acres of the mountain. When you reach the top of the mountain, you will be about 1,800 feet above the Humber River; take a moment and marvel at the spectacular scenery before you. The new Lightening Express Lift will take you from the bottom of the hill to the top in a matter of minutes.
For those who prefer snowboarding to skiing and want to stay in the Terrain Park, remember to play safely, especially in the Freestyle Terrain.
What makes Marble Mountain Resort one of the most attractive places for families to visit in Newfoundland? If you have young children, the resort will cater to your needs at the Children’s Centre. book your children for a full day at the Centre while you take to the hill or the lodge for some “me time,” and your kids will be provided with a healthy lunch and plenty of activities. They can also take skiing lessons through the Center with qualified instructors and staff.
If you are from out of town and want accommodations near the hill, there are several great places to stay near the base of the mountain in Steady Brook, such as the ski-in/ski-out Marble Villa (located about 200 feet from the Black Mariah chairlift) along with a variety of other hotels, inns, and more.
Don’t leave Marble Mountain Resort without looking into the adventure and exhilaration of zip lining. Take to the air across nine zip lines that are up to 2,000 feet long, 285 feet high, and go up to 30 kilometers per hour. Spectacular aerial views of the Humber Valley are worth your time and money, and the zip lining course is bound to be one of the most fun and exciting places to visit in Newfoundland.
