Ontario summers are fleeting – as soon as it starts to feel warm enough for the beach, it seems that September is just around the corner. Which is why I was so happy to have been invited by Ford Canada to spend a weekend at the Westin Trillium House at Blue Mountain Resort with my blogger besties. In the spirit of #FordTryMore, we were offered a range of fun and exciting activities we could participate in, to take our summer up a notch.
So, on a Friday evening, the girls and I piled into the super sleek 2015 Ford Focus Titanium – decked out to the brim with handy features like active park assist, blind spot information system, SYNC with My Ford Touch that allows drivers to interact through voice control, and of course, GPS that helped us navigate from my house to our home for the weekend. Road trips with friends are always fun, and the 2-hour drive felt like 30 minutes, because we were chatting and snacking the entire way.
Once we arrived at Westin, we were welcomed into our stunning one bedroom and loft suite, complete with a lovely view of the resort, kitchenette, and lots of lounging space. After a delicious dinner at Tholos Restaurant in the village (two words: fried cheese!), we called it a night.
The next morning, post-brunch at Oliver and Bonacini Cafe Grill, it was adventure o’clock! First on the agenda – Wind Rider Triple Zips. After getting strapped in and advised of the risks, we walked up the mountain, and found ourselves staring down from a considerable height. Luckily, none of us was afraid of heights, so off we went – and it was thrilling! Two zip lines later, we were back on solid ground, and itching for more. The rush of flying through the air, limbs flailing all over the place, had gotten our adrenaline flowing – and we wanted more!
More after the jump!
