Location & Resort

Where does YetiCon Take place?

YetiCon takes place at Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood, Ontario. Our indoor panels, activities, registration and dealers room are in The Village Conference Centre (not to be confused with the “Blue Mountain Inn & Conference Centre”), while our other outdoor activities and parties take place at venues throughout the Blue Mountain Village.

The address for the Blue Mountain Village is: 156 Jozo Weider Blvd, The Blue Mountains, ON L9Y 3Z2

Is there a map of the resort?

A map of the resort is available here.

What is the Blue Mountain Village?

The Blue Mountain Village is an area of Blue Mountain Resort surrounded by shopping, restaurants, and activities. Hotels located in the Village are the Grand Georgian, Seasons, Weider Lodge, and Mosaic. YetiCon's indoor location: The Village Conference Centre, also borders The Village.

Does YetiCon have a discount code for Blue Mountain accommodations?

Yes, booking instructions along with our discount code can be found here.

Where can I book a room?

Booking instruction to apply our YetiCon discount code can be found here. Alternatively if you wish to stay at an area not listed online (such as Wintergreen), you can call Blue Mountain to reserve a room and mention the code and YetiCon to inquire if our discount will apply.

Where do I check-in to my village hotel?

If you are staying at one of the Village hotels (Grand Georgian, Seasons, or Weider Lodge), check-in can be done at the Grand Georgian front desk.

How far away is the Blue Mountain Inn from The Village?

The Blue Mountain Inn is less than a 10 minute walk from The Village, however there is also a free resort shuttle available for use to avoid the walk.

How can I contact the Free Resort Shuttle?

The shuttle can be reached for on-demand service by calling 705-443-5519 or by calling 877-445-0231 ext 8280.

What Blue Mountain Resort activities can I participate in with my YetiCon badge?

Outside of our own activities, there are many resort activities that are included with the YetiCon badge at specific times. The times for these resort activities can be found in our program, and almost all of them are exclusively for use by YetiCon badge owners during these times.

Is there a discount for activity tickets outside of YetiCon's included times?

Yes! If you can't make YetiCon's exclusive times or wish to avoid the line, your YetiCon pass will provide you with a discount on any activity ticket you buy and use outside of YetiCon's scheduled times.

To get the most of this discount, we recommend buying activity tickets on Friday (and then using them over the weekend) as the discount applied will be 40% off, rather than buying tickets Saturday or Sunday where the discount is 20% off.

Is Blue Mountain Resort a waterpark?

Blue Mountain Resort is not a waterpark, however each hotel has access to its own pool and hot tubs area, as seen on the map (the Blue Mountain Inn has an indoor pool area as well as four separate outdoor hot tubs).

In addition, from 6pm to 9pm both Friday and Saturday, the YetiCon Pool Party takes place at the Plunge! Aquatic Centre, which is separate from all hotels.

Is there free WiFi?

Yes, Blue Mountain provides WiFi complimentary in hotel lobbies. Premium WiFi is also available for greater reach covering hotels and conference centres for $9.95 per 24h or $17.95 per 72h, for up to three devices.

Is there free parking?

Yes, Blue Mountain has an abundance of free parking spots located beside Blue Mountain's Village and The Village Conference Centre. Free parking spots are designated by the green square with “P” inside on the resort map.

Where can I eat?

There are multiple means to procure edible sustenance! Many restaurants are located in The Village (drop by our BBQ Dock Party at Kaytoo on Friday night!), but there are also many delivery options such as pizza and more for your hotel room. In addition, if you are staying at a village hotel (Grand Georgian, Seasons, or Weider Lodge) you can choose to prepare your own food, as each of the village rooms have a full kitchen within them (with the exception of Studio Suites which have a kitchenette instead).

What are the hours for Blue Mountain's front desk and security?

Blue Mountain runs both a 24-hour front desk and 24-hour security, you can contact them any time through your room should you need to.

Is there a bus?

Although we are not running our own bus this year, Summerbound is running two shuttle buses to YetiCon 2017. However, as of the posting of this page both of Summerbound's buses are sold out. Additionally however, Greyhound does run buses to Collingwood (the town Blue Mountain is located in).

What are YetiCon's general policies?

What is YetiCon's weapon policy?

All props that appear weapon-like, or could potentially be viewed as a threat by attendees, staff, or the general public, must clear weapons-check before entering convention grounds.

YetiCon requires attendees to observe all Ontario laws regarding replica firearms and weaponry. To ensure safety, ALL cosplay props resembling firearms MUST have a distinct marker that visibly identifies it as a prop (such as an orange tip, or a proportion larger than real weapons).

Are kids free to access YetiCon?

Unfortunately, due to the number of activities we've booked out exclusively for YetiCon that are included with the pass, we can't let children in free. Kids will need a pass to participate in YetiCon activities.

Children two or under (that are too young to participate in YetiCon activities) can be brought into the dealers room for free, however we do allow our artists and vendors to sell mature content in our dealers room.

Can I solicit in the Village Conference Centre?

No, Blue Mountain does not allow soliciting. Please do not solicit in the Village Conference Centre, if you have promotional material for a related convention or event we'd be happy to display it for you on our Con Collective table.

Can I cosplay anything?

Of course! As long as it does not conflict with our costume and cosplay policies (full nudity/offensive material) you can cosplay whatever you'd like! :)

Where can I take photos or have cosplay photoshoots at Blue Mountain Resort?

Photos can be be taken anywhere at Blue Mountain Resort, EXCEPT on the golf course! We don't want anyone to be hit by stray golf balls!

Where can I find information to book cosplay photoshoots or group photoshoots?

We have a Facebook group where many photographers have posted their information, the pinned post is also a directory of photgraphers that have said they're coming to YetiCon 2017! In addition if you wish to set up a group shoot feel free to use this group to find cosplayers of the same fandom.
