Pros: Fun...just a flat out fun course to play. The course literally starts from the bar and grill patio and you throw 2 downhill ace runs in #1 and #2. This is followed by a slew of fun shots that meander up and around the hillside. Each hole can be aced but offer enough elevation or fairway to keep it interesting. 9 finishes with a worthy hole that cuts through an alley in the woods to an open plateau jutting uphill a bit. I can't exaggerate the beauty of playing disc golf on top of a secluded mountain and being allowed to drink your beverages from the bar as you do. The course is open at night (Saturdays) with the ski lights allowing for night golf.
I threw hyzers, anhyzers, and straight shots as I negotiated the mountain terrain. This course is simpler and way easier than the other Beasts of Blue (Base Course and Peak) but it is loaded with fun ace chase disc golf shots. Tee Pads were concrete and perfect and the baskets were exceptional. Maintenance was impeccable. I don't usually get excited about a niner but this one is a blast. Have a beer and a meal get up play a round....have another drink...relax enjoy yourself it's $5 to play all day!
Cons: Not a world class challenge, it's meant to be a warm-up or cool down after the grueling rounds offered by Peak and Base courses. Par is probably under 27 for most experienced players. Wind can still be a factor on top of the mountain so be prepared with stable/overstable glideless plastic. Not much wrong with the course other than lack of true challenge.
Other Thoughts: I don't think playing it first is a good idea...your legs and body will need all the strength it has to endure the other courses at Blue Mountain.I would encourage all players who had a miserable experience losing discs and throwing high scores on the other courses to play slopeside afterwards as a means to restore your love and passion for the sport. It's just plain fun.

Pros: -Good for beginners
-A quick nine to warm up/cool down on the mountain
-Nice baskets
-Good tee pads
-Course is well maintained
-Right next to the lodge
-Nice complement to the Mountain and Valley courses
Cons: -The trip to Blue Mountain isn't worth it if you plan just to play this course
Other Thoughts: -You still have to pay to play this course but it's not as much as the mountain or valley course (it is included if you paid to play the other courses on Blue Mountain)

Pros: When you look at it in context with 2 full 18 hole courses around it, you should understand why it's here.

-Ace run on every whole.
-Elevevation change on every hole.
-Mostly open, but somewhat wooded.
-Mix of left/right/straight shots.
-Easy to find tees/pin/next hole.
-Great design and layout.
-Very well maintained.
-Newer baskets and concrete tees.
-Beginner friendly/fun for pro-ams.
-A quick round.
-Great guy running the disc golf courses.
Cons: -Sometimes the music is blaring from the bar.
-Pay 2 play, but it's just $3/$5.
-This course is an excellent stand alone, but you aren't coming from 1+ hrs. away to play this course only.
Other Thoughts: No need for a map, just start near the bar. Hole 9 is a left dogleg and is not the practice pin you see from the pin. No chance of losing discs. It's a pitch and putt, so it's fine that all the holes are shorter. Warm yourself up here before the Skyline course.

  Blue Mountian Slopeside 9

Pros: I think that Slopeside 9 is a great addition to the Blue Mountain family. This is a very beginner friendly course and can be used as a great warm up for either of the other 2 courses on site. 1 Concrete tee pad and 1 basket on each of the 9 holes. A great course to work on approach shots. There is some elevation and most of the shots are open so you can work the disc in either direction.
Cons: No major cons. They could make 9 more.
Other Thoughts: You could use this course as a great Ace race or par 2 course. Very fun way to start the day at Blue Mountain
