Barrie’s Best Ski and Snowboard Hill: Mt. St Louis Moonstone vs. Horseshoe

In our last blog, we compared our hill and facilities to the ones found at Blue Mountain. We clearly feel we offer the most value to the Barrie area’s skiers and snowboarders, and we don’t mind proving it.

So how do we stack up to Horseshoe Valley? We’re both relatively the same distance away from both Barrie and Toronto, so let’s take a closer look.

Our Hill

We offer a higher vertical, with more slopes (at least 15 more runs) that translates into 60% more skiable terrain. This includes more hills for beginners to learn on, as well.

We also have bigger terrain parks with more features, including two half pipes compared to zero at Horseshoe Valley.

Our Chairlifts

We have more high-speed lifts and more chairlifts. Our greater investment in new chairlifts and overall more modern network of chairlifts includes 4 high-speed chairs, compared to Horseshoe’s one.

At the same time, our chairlift seat cushions are much softer and thicker for maximum comfort on your ride to the top.

Our Equipment

We offer the Barrie area’s largest rental fleet, with the widest selection.

Our Snowmaking

No night skiing means we spend our nights on snowmaking and grooming. This means there is no snowmaking on open trails so your skiing and snowboarding is wide open each time you come to see us.

Skiing and Snowboarding is All We Do

This is it. We’re only focused on skiing and snowboarding. Nothing else. We’re a family owned business that wants to create the best experience for the Barrie area’s skiers and snowboarders.
