Snow Lover’s Trivia: Holidays at Mont Sainte Anne


Located only 30 minutes away from beautiful and historic Quebec City, Mont Sainte Anne rises up from the shores of the mighty St Lawrence seaway giving spectacular views of the frozen expanse of water directly below.

This great resort boasts incredible snow conditions and proudly displays an impressive trail network across three mountain sides. A true winter wonderland for the holidays!

Host of many World Cup events, the skiing terrain offers 66 trails, covering 465 acres and 42 miles, with a 2,050-foot vertical drop. At night, skiers and riders enjoy 18 lighted trails and the highest vertical drop for night skiing in Canada. Sounds like Christmas lights for the skier!

Mont Sainte Anne provides a wide range of activities for the whole family all year; cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice canyoning, paragliding, dog sledding, mountain biking, golf, camping, hiking and more!

For those on a quest for a winter wonderland experience Mont Sainte Anne offers, besides their Cross-Country Ski Centre, an array of activities from soft adventure to full-fledged extreme sports. At the base of the lifts, snowshoeing and ice skating are available, along with downhill equipment for the slopes at the Sports Alpins shop. From base camp, a few steps from the gondolas, Les Secrets Nordiques offers dog sledding. Always very popular! For extreme sport Canyoning-Québec near Mont Sainte Anne provides ice canyoning at Jean-Larose Falls. Winter-sport amateurs can rappel down spectacular, 41-meter, frozen Falls. Ice-canyoning is the perfect activity for discovering an ice cascade, formed by small trickles of running water that produce magical stalactites. An exclusive winter product in North America!

In any season, the paragliding school, AeroStyle, invites extreme sport enthusiasts to live the magic of flying in the most beautiful panorama of the Côte de Beaupré. The 2,050 feet vertical drop offered by Mont-Sainte-Anne make it one of the best site for free flying in Quebec. Flyers can access the summit take-off zone almost yearlong thanks to the gondola, seven days a week when the weather allows.

For those interested in ski history, the Ski Museum will test ones knowledge of the sport in Quebec City. The Quebec Ski Museum was founded in 1989 by François Pichard, one of Quebec’s ski pioneers. Its objective is to restore and to highlight different documents and objects related to the region’s ski history. By extension, it aims to recognize the contribution of its builders and organizers.

Meet Mount Sainte Anne, a winter wonderland for the adventurer.
