Encountering The Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains is a town within Grey County, where the Beaver River flows into Nottawasaga Bay.

Thornbury has a variety of independently owned and operated businesses welcoming all walks of life. Main street offers many boutiques, galleries, specialty food stores and cafes, drawing visitors during all seasons. The waterfront is well known for the marina and pier, where many visitors and residents alike plunge into the clear blue waters for a refreshing dip or sailing the Bay taking in the scenic views.

The Economy

With the European ski resort vibe, the village represents a similar feel to the Whistler-Blackcomb resort in Alberta. From downhill skiing, mountain biking, hiking trails, a private beach, miniature golf and now with the addition of the “Alpine Coater” the Blue Mountains offer year-round adventure and entertainment, with ample opportunity for great profit.
