Mont Sainte Anne is located 25 miles from Quebec City in the Laurentian
Mountains - noted for spectacular views of the nearby French Canadian city with
excellent skiing overlooking the mighty St Lawrence Seaway.
With 66 trails covering 527 acres and 42 miles, Mont Sainte Anne has a hearty
2,050-foot vertical drop. Mont Sainte-Anne’s base to summit gondola is a great
lift, along with two high speed quads that flank this three-sided ski mountain.
From the summit you can ski in all direction or visit one of two splendid lodges
including Chalet La Crete, the panorama is spectacular looking back at
City and out at the St Lawrence River. See our
Mont Sainte Anne ski photo gallery.
Mont Sainte Anne offers lots of great ski terrain, groomed trails like FIS
sanctioned La Crete - a race trail with extraordinary views and a sustained
pitch of 40-degreesand, La S and Super S are long legendary bump runs. Mont Sainte Anne is also host to fun terrain parks and beautiful
glades - Le Forêt Noire, La Belle et La Bete, and La Forêt Enchantée. The
longest trail at Mont Sainte Anne is Chemin du Roy - a leisurely 3.7 mile run.
Sainte Anne's signature base to summit gondola is an impressive lift that accesses
much of the popular terrain, from the top you can drop off the backside and ski a secluded
t-bar on the West Side with natural snow and no one around. The North Side is
served by a high-speed quad and features several intermediate cruisers plus a
few fun glades - this northern exposure section stays open latest in the season
with quality snow. The South Side gets a new high speed quad for 2014, Le
Panorama Express. It's good to see some of Mont Sainte Anne's older ski lifts
getting upgraded here, since Le Massif an
half hour north has invested many millions in its ski resort. Mont Sainte-Anne
does have one of the best
ski and snowboard schools, Ecole de Sport Neiges, in Quebec with lessons for all abilities
plus son mountain daycare for the little ones.
At the base of Mont Sainte Anne is a small but fun ski village with après ski
bars like Le Brez, shops, and lodging at the ski in/ ski out four diamond
Mont-Sainte-Anne. The Chateau Spa offers a range of beauty and health treatments
and an outdoor hot tub and indoor pool.
Mont Sainte Anne offers night skiing on 19 trails of the highest vertical night
skiing in Canada. But après ski at Mont Sainte Anne's bars and bistros may be
even more fun than continuing to ski into the cold, dark night without the
benefit of the fantastic daytime view, in our opinion Winter
activities at Mont Sainte Anne also include dog sledding, extensive Nordic
skiing on over 200 kilometers, indoor swimming, ice skating, a visit to Hotel de
Glace Ice Palace – constructed entirely out of ice each winter, or
visit the Montmorency Falls on Route 138- a dramatic waterfall 30 meters higher
Skiers can also opt to drive the half hour and stay in the beautiful historic
city of Quebec City at the swank
Hotel Le Germain Dominion or the famous Le
Château Frontenac, dine and party in Vieux Quebec and commute to the ski slopes
Be sure to ski La Pichard trail to the Cabine a la Sucre for maple syrup on snow – a
sweet Canadian treat. For a fireside fondue lunch or dinner, you can ski or walk
to Le Brez in Mont Sainte Anne's slope side village - this on mountain
restaurant makes our Top 10 Ski Resort Dining list.
During your Quebec ski trip to Mont Sainte Anne, you should drive a half hour
north to ski Le Massif as well. Mont
Sainte Anne and nearby Stoneham are sister resorts under Resorts of the Canadian
Rockies along with Lake Louise,
Fernie, Nakiska and Kimberly in Western
