Quebec

Since I don’t get to go to Mont-Sainte- Anne as often as I’d like to, I’m always thrilled when the opportunity arises. My friends and I only manage to get a few ski days in every winter, and it’s just not enough. So, when we do get around to skiing, I like to make the most of it. That’s why I head to Mont-Sainte-Anne. This mountain has everything we love: narrow, ungroomed pistes as well as wide impeccably groomed boulevards, extensive glades, ISF-calibre trails, long green and blue descents for laidback skiing while admiring the landscape, not to mention several runs that are certainly some of the most beautiful in Quebec, starting with the Crête and the others in its sectors, which provide an unbelievable view of the St. Lawrence and Île d’Orléans.

One of the best things about Mont-Ste-Anne is its configuration. Many of its sectors have a consistent regular slope—once you start going down, you practically don’t stop until you arrive at the lifts. There are no false flats, so you won’t need to pole in order to keep moving. You’ll go non-stop, from the top to the bottom of the run.

Another advantage is that trails are divided into sides that get very different sun exposure. The North Side and West Side don’t get too much sun. That means beautiful snow until late in the season, which is really good news since Ste-Anne typically stays open until late April—much to the joy of spring ski enthusiasts.

While it’s possible to do a day trip from southern Quebec to enjoy some skiing here, you’ll find that it’s over in a flash. So, why not hang around for a few days? There are tons of accommodations to choose from, great restaurants around the corner and plenty of runs for a fun-filled weekend, long weekend or even a week-long stay during the Holidays or Spring Break!

Mont-Sainte-Anne isn’t just any Quebec ski resort—it is a HUGE Quebec ski resort! Mega winter sports complexes are few and far between in la belle province. In fact, “Le Mont,” as it is affectionately referred to by its regular visitors, is one of the only places in Quebec that has absolutely everything for everyone when it comes to either skiing or enjoying a fabulous winter vacation.

The skiable terrain of 465 acres at Mont- Sainte-Anne includes 70 km of trails spread across three sides of the mountain. There is truly something for everyone here, from steep runs that are sure to please more hard core skiers to long groomers that are perfect for beginners. And, as a backdrop to it all is a breathtaking view of Île d’Orléans, the St. Lawrence River and even Quebec City, some 40 km away. It gives you an idea of the sheer size of the place! The mechanical snow-making system is the most technologically advanced, and is the main reason the resort can offer one of the longest ski seasons in all of Quebec. The night skiing here is also fabulous, with over 17 lit runs to choose from. Plus, Mont- Sainte-Anne has merged with one of the biggest cross-country ski resorts in Quebec, where you can also enjoy snowshoeing trails, dogsled rides and even paragliding! It’s not called a multisport resort for nothing!

With such a wide array of options to choose from, no wonder the regulars keep flocking back! In fact, people from every corner of Quebec are known to make an annual pilgrimage to Mont-Saint-Anne. Whether you choose to stay slopeside or in Quebec City, finding accommodations here is as easy as can be.
