The largest offering of illuminated ski areas in the world

572 lighted trails across the territory

In Québec, everything converges to offer skiers and snowboarders a multitude of sliding opportunities, whether it is the abundant snow, breathtaking scenery, festive après-ski activities, or superb spring skiing conditions. Added to all these advantages are the night skiing opportunities available at 48 of Québec’s 75 ski stations, making it the largest offering of illuminated ski areas in the world!

Better yet, most are located less than an hour’s drive from Montréal, Québec or Gatineau, which means you can escape the city for a few hours and work it out on the slopes. You may also opt to extend your stay by spending the night at a hotel, a charming inn or an alpine chalet.

Not only can you observe spectacular sunsets and star-lit skies from the top of the mountain, but the runs will often be freshly groomed. Other great advantages of night skiing include lower rates and fewer people on the slopes, all in an especially festive atmosphere. There is no better way to end the day, spend quality time with family and friends, and make sure you get a restful night’s sleep!
