Winter Ski Guide: The Laurentians Edition
Oct 27, 2016
Located in southern Quebec is a four-season outdoor-lover’s paradise. The Laurentian Mountains are a hot spot all year long, but especially in the winter. Thirteen different ski resorts span over 300km of slopes with every kind of challenge imaginable. Skiers, boarders and people who love winter snow can have a blast at any number of places.
Mont Tremblant is for thrill-seekers with almost half of the slopes being black diamond runs. Vallée Bleue has some smooth, easy runs like Le Passage and Black Foot. Mont Habitat is smaller in comparison to the others, but it still packs plenty of fun into a compact area. Black diamond La Tuque and easy Bon Bon are great for experts and beginners. There is something for everyone.
Snowboarders and freestylers will love the terrain parks like Rockstar MSS in Mont Saint-Sauveur. It includes half-pipes, kickers and wave rides. There is even an area to chill out and enjoy music with your fellow boarders. Any skill level can enjoy the wide variety of challenges that spread out over the whole area.
Night skiing, walking through quaint ski villages and shopping go hand-in-hand with great skiing. Snowshoe, do some cross-country skiing or ice skate—there is something for everyone in the Laurentian Mountains. When you work up an appetite there are so many places to choose from. Restaurant Baton Rouge in Saint-Sauveur serves up succulent pork ribs with house-made lip-licking sauce. Microbrasserie Saint-Arnould is affordable with beer-based food and ten original brews. Mont Tremblant has fine French dining options like Restaurant Le Cheval de Jade.
Museums, art galleries, spas and casinos will make your time off of the slopes as good as your time on them.
