Pet-Friendly Ski Resorts in Ontario

Pet-Friendly Ski Resorts in Ontario
Western Canadian ski resorts, such as Whistler/Blackcomb and the Sun Peaks resort, have been offering pet-friendly lodging for years. Many Ontario ski resorts have joined the party. It's now possible to find pet-friendly lodging at various ski areas in Ontario. Hotel policies vary, so make sure that your pets are allowed to stay in the room without supervision. Some resorts even have access to pet day care, which is often a better option. Be sure that your pet's vaccinations are up to date before setting out on your trip.

Blue Mountain

Intrawest, the company that owns Whistler/Blackcomb, also owns Blue Mountain. Given Whistler's pet-friendly ambience, it's not surprising that four-legged family members are also welcome at this Collingwood, Ontario, resort.
