Mont-Sainte-Anne Ski Resort
Located just along the mighty St Lawrence River, there are few resorts that can boast a more impressive setting than Mont-Sainte-Anne.
Boasting a vertical of 625m, 71 trails and unrivalled views for a ski resort, Mont-Sainte-Anne is well worth visiting if you're after a North American ski experience with a twist. It can be brutally cold this far north, but this means that snow conditions are reliable throughout the season and the wooded slopes definitely provide protection when the wind is blowing and definition when the snow is falling. There's good variety for all standards, from gentle greens at the base to long blues on the backside, right up to steep glades off the summit.
Lots of accommodation can be found in and around numerous golf courses that lie at the base of the mountain and in the town of Beaupré, or alternatively you can stay in the impressive and lively Quebec City – the drive takes around half an hour.
