How To Safely Plan A Visit To Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain When You Are In The Area.

Learn about the Spa’s new reservations system and last minute tips for access to the Baths Hydrotherapy Activity.


Weekend and holiday early morning line-ups are no longer a thing. One of the benefits of navigating COVID-19 this year is Scandinave Spa’s new online reservation system. Now guests can book guaranteed check-in times to enjoy the Baths Hydrotherapy activity as well as Registered Massage treatments. The Spa plans to continue this reservation system from now on since it has been embraced by spa-goers.

If you do not have a reservation, read on for tips to plan your visit:


The Spa has significantly reduced daily capacity which means less Massage Therapy capability and a reduction in the number of guests who can check in for the Baths Hydrotherapy activity each day. New protocols and physical distancing requirements mean fewer guests can be visiting at the same time, including a maximum of 2 people per group.

Last minute cancellations and new reservation availability often happens. If you are planning to visit on a specific day but do not have a reservation, keep checking the online reservation portal. All cancellations and new reservation times automatically appear online.  If there is availability, book it. Reservations are the only guaranteed way to experience the Spa on the day you want to visit.



The new Wait List app is a last-minute opportunity for guests already in the area to get access to the Spa Baths experience. There are a limited number of spaces available on the list before it is “full.” Guests on the list are not guaranteed check-in at a specific time and it is possible that Wait List guests will not be able to check-in at all that day. Before you plan your visit, here are other important Wait List tips:

  1. Guests sign-up online:
  2. The Wait List is open from 11am-6pm for same day visits.
  3. Maximum 2 people per Wait List entry. Large groups are unable to sign-up together.
  4. The Spa recommends guests add themselves when they are in the area and available to check-in within 1 hour of receiving a text notification.
  5. Wait List check-in cannot be postponed to a later time in the day. Availability is not flexible.
  6. Guests will be removed from the Wait List if they do not respond to text notifications.
  7. Wait times vary and cannot be determined in advance.


Plan your visit for less popular times of the week, avoid weekends and holiday times, especially in the winter months. The Spa is open from 9am-9pm daily (except on Dec. 24th until 6pm and is closed on Dec. 25th). Evenings are also less busy than morning visits.

If you are in the area, looking to après ski or recover after a winter hike, take a little time to relax at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain. Things are a little different now, but the experience is as rejuvenating and memorable as it always has been.
