Ski Resorts in Quebec
Spread between the Laurentian and Appalachian Mountains, Quebec is home to some of the most popular and lively ski resorts in Canada. Unlike the big mountain alpine experience offered by many of the resorts in BC and Alberta, Quebec's ski resorts are generally below treeline, with the trails being lined with trees from top to bottom, which has a definite appeal, not least on bad weather days. The areas surrounding the resorts tend to be more populated than in the west, creating an atmosphere and experience not dissimilar to that found in parts of the European Alps. In addition to the variety of ski resorts in Quebec, the friendly hospitality and excellent local cuisine are major draws for skiers and snowboarders spending their ski vacation in Quebec.
Mont Tremblant is the largest ski resort in Quebec and lies in the Laurentians around 1.5 hours north west of Montreal and 2 hours from Ottawa. Several other ski resorts are located in the same region, making a road trip in this part of the Laurentians very appealing indeed. Other notable regions for skiing in Quebec are the Eastern Townships where you will find the ski resorts of Mont Sutton and Mont Orford, and the area surrounding Quebec City, home to Mont Sainte Anne and Stoneham.
