Quebec Ski Resorts

Quebec Ski Resorts
Quebec is home to wonderful French culture, language, cuisine and skiing. Many ski resorts, fashioned in European chalet village styles, grace the mountains of the province of Quebec. If you are looking for a ski holiday with the charm of France and the ease of North America, look no further than "La Belle Province."

Mont Tremblant Ski Resort

Mont Tremblant is easily reached from Montreal's Pierre Trudeau Airport or Tremblant International Airport. The drive time from Montreal is approximately 1.5 hours, depending on road conditions and traffic. The resort offers world-class amenities, gourmet restaurants, and some of the best skiing in the eastern portion of North America. The mountain has 95 runs served by 14 lifts. Black diamonds, blue and green runs give the skier plenty of variety, and beginners and children are taken care of with the bunny hills. Tremblant is the tallest mountain in the Laurention Range, and was known as Manitonga Soutana, or "Mountain of the Spirits" to the Algonquin people. The express gondola departs each morning at 7:45 a.m. for those wanting first tracks. The area has 654 skiable acres with a vertical drop of 2,116 feet. Mont Tremblant Ski Resort is part of the Intrawest series of ski resorts.
