Planning a trip to Quebec City and want to go skiing? Everyone told us Le Massif de Charlevoix is the best ski resort near Quebec City. Here’s what makes Le Massif so unique, and all the fun things you can do there. It’s so much more than skiing!
Big Mountain Skiing With Spectacular Views
Just 1 hour 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City, Le Massif de Charlevoix is the biggest mountain (most vertical drop) east of the Rockies and offers breathtaking views of the icy Saint Lawrence river below.
Variety of Trails for Every Ability
There are over 50 trails for every level of skier. Half the mountain is beginner / intermediate and the other half is advanced / expert. So no matter what your ability is, you’ll find plenty of trails to enjoy!
There’s also nearly 100 acres of off-trail, backcountry skiing if you want to ski in fresh powder zipping through the trees. And there’s plenty of powder because Le Massif receives an average of 212 inches of natural snow every year!
Fast Modern Lifts
Le Massif is equipped with fast, modern lifts, including 2 high-speed quads and a high-speed gondola. I loved taking the gondola because you can get warm on the way up, instead of getting cold like a regular lift!
If you’re not sure which trails are the best, most fun, or at your ability, at the top of the mountain there’s a big trail map with guides who can help select the best trail for you.
At the top of the mountain is the Summit Cafeteria serving breakfast and lunch. This is not your ordinary cafeteria.
