Why Le Massif?
Québec City is one of Canada’s most culturally vibrant cities and a winter lover’s paradise. The area has the excitement and sophistication of North America’s oldest city mixed with the thrill and challenges of the best skiing east of the Rockies.
Three great mountain resorts: Mont-Sainte-Anne, Stoneham Mountain Resort and Le Massif are located within 1 ½ hours of the Québec capital. They are blessed with over 260 inches of natural snow each year, a combined vertical drop of over 6,000 feet, a mountain playground of some 4,500 acres, and an impressive total of 139 ski and snowboard trails for all levels.
Le Massif has the highest vertical rise (770m/ 2,525 ft) east of the Canadian Rockies and gets as much snow as many of the Rockies resorts with the most advanced skiing on 43 pistes of the three resorts. It is about 1 ½ hours drive from Québec City and has a unique base area which is at the top of the mountain - you arrive, park and ski down! The views on your descent are spectacular and make you feel as if you can just keep going and ski out across the St Lawrence River.
