Québec's Ski Resorts
More than 90% of Québec's area lies within the Canadian Shield - a rough, rocky terrain sculpted and scraped clean of soil by successive ice ages. The southern portion of the shield extends to the Laurentians, a mountain range just north of Montreal and Quebec City and it is within this area that the 40 ski resorts are found. The ski resorts are a very popular pull for the area and have a big local following.
The best known ski resort in Québec is Mont Tremblant - it is an Intrawest Resort and offers a high standard of accommodation combined with a convenient ski in ski out village.
The other popular ski resorts are Stoneham, Mont-Sainte-Anne and Le Massif (this resort is undergoing a massive redevelopment program by its present owner Daniel Gauthier, the founder of Cirque du Soleil). The ski resorts are an easy drive from Québec City, so you can base yourself in the city and ski a different resort on a daily basis. Mont St Anne, at present, is the largest ski area and Stoneham the closest to the city and has extensive night skiing.
The views from Le Massif are spectacular and make you feel as if you can just keep going and ski out across the St Lawrence River.
Mont-Sainte-Anne is the second largest resort in Québec with some of the best ski terrain in the east, and is located an easy 40 minute drive from Québec City.
Stoneham Mountain Resort has 32 runs serviced by 9 lifts nestled in a horseshoe shaped valley formed by 4 rounded peaks.
Tremblant’s colourful clapboard houses, all-ability ski area and fantastic off-slope activities make it a firm family favourite.
