Québec: your ski destination

There are ski destinations to visit all over the world, but none are as unique as the ones in Québec. From majestic views and natural snow to friendly locals and legendary après-ski, each and every one of the mountains offers something to look forward to and remember for next time.

Breathtaking views in every direction

Québec’s best ski hills are located among the most unique scenery nature has to offer. Whether it’s rolling mountains, charming villages, large lakes or the mighty St. Lawrence River, every ski run will treat your eyes to memorable views of incredible landscapes. Tremblant in the Laurentians is located in a place where lakes and mountains meet. It’s the only hill where you can enjoy a presidential view of the winding curves of Lake Tremblant as you descend. The St. Lawrence River is always a show-stopper. Just imagine how it looks while descending a ski hill in winter! In the Québec City and Charlevoix regions, the Le Massif and Mont-Sainte-Anne mountains both offer fantastic views of the majestic river from almost every angle. It’s as if you’re skiing directly towards the St. Lawrence River. Surrounded by mountains, Lake Memphremagog is a sight to see from atop a hill. In the Eastern Townships, you can do so from Owl’s Head and Mont-Orford.

Snow, and lots of it

In the winter, there is no shortage of snow, especially in the province of Québec. Skiers love it and jump at the opportunity to ski after (or even during!) a snow storm. With 400 to 700 cm (155-275 inches) of natural snow expected each season, the ski runs are well-maintained and the skiing is out of this world. And when Mother Nature is not in the mood, our main resorts have thousands of snow cannons. There’s so much snow, in fact, that the ski season is prolonged and mountains offer exceptional spring skiing every year. You’ll just have to see it to believe it!

There’s something for everyone

Where there’s lots of snow, there’s awesome slopes. Each and every one of Québec’s ski resorts offers a variety of terrains that cater to every level and style of skiing. You can find alpine touring, groomed trails, glades, powdered slopes and first-track skiing—often on the same mountain! These mountains also have the largest offering of illuminated night skiing, giving skiers the option to enjoy the slopes after their workday. This is especially true in the Laurentians, where a majority of the slopes are open in the evenings, allowing you to experience unique skiing in an enchanting setting.
