Don' t you love to be slopeside, to wake to the view of the slopes and know that
first tracks are just steps away, or to fall asleep to the twinkly lights of the
groomers heading out to buff the slopes. Mont Sainte Anne in Quebec has just the
place- the Chateau Mont Sainte Anne. Sure, Quebec City is just 25 miles away,
but not having to drive has its rewards - like riding first gondola to the
summit. Those first runs off the top with views of the St Lawrence Seaway and of
Quebec in the distance are priceless. See our
Mont Sainte Anne ski photo gallery.
Château Mont-Sainte-Anne is located right at the base of
Mont Sainte Anne's
slopes. In fact it's the only ski in ski out hotel here. The ski lockers are
just a short stroll in your ski boots to the gondola and ski school. The Hotel
is four star and offers lodging ranging from a typical hotel room to condos, to
the Nordik Studios which have been completely redecorated in a modern alpine
style. These rooms are spacious and offer a couch, mini- kitchen and espresso
machine for your morning coffee. Most ski and stay packages at The Chateau
include a full buffet breakfast in the main dining room with a view of the
slopes. Children 17 and under stay free with parents here.
The Spa Chateau in the hotel offers a range of beauty and health treatments and
two outdoor hot tubs plus an indoor pool which are very popular with the kids
The small but fun ski village at Sainte Anne offers a few ski shops, après ski
bars and restaurants including the Bistro Nordik inside the Hotel, and Le Brez
which serves excellent wood fired pizza , beef or cheese fondue and local
Quebecois cuisine, featured on our
