  1. Which would you say is the most fun for night skiing? Based on everyone’s reviews so far It sounds like St-Sauveur is an all-around favorite.
  2. @ShaneThank you for the great recommendations. It seems like ski culture in Quebec really brings night skiing to a new level. I really look forward to experiencing it.
  3. @ShaneThank you for the advice! I was hoping for a car-free trip but it looks like I might need to rent a car after all. I just get nervous after so many years of living in an area with hardly any rain and never any snow. The Johnston Canyon looks stunning. Sun Peaks is on my list of top places I would like to ski before I die... unsurprisingly there are several Canadian resorts on the list.
  4. @VictoriaBeautiful photos! It looks like a fun trip. Is it true that having a car is completely unnecessary to enjoy a ski trip in Banff?
  5. @OceanThank you for your recommendations. Le Manoir looks lovely and on their website I noticed Saint-Sauveur has the world’s largest night skiing. I definitely want to check that out. I also love a good après ski soak. The Scandinave at Tremblant looks delightful.
  6. @PaulThank you again! This is really very nice. I was unaware there was so much in the St-Saveur area and will have to check it out. @GordoThank you for the info about the border crossing. I agree with you; international travel does not look promising for US residents. Oh well... I’ll already be very happy if my local ski areas remain open. And thank you for helping narrow down the selection. Fingers crossed we can all enjoy a nice ski season!!!
  7. Thank you, Paul! This is very helpful You mentioned several resorts in the area traveling between Montreal and Tremblant. Are there I should add to my itinerary? I’m excited to experience skiing in Quebec. I’ve heard Mont Sutton is a very unique resort and I’m looking forward to skiing in the glades. I’ve also heard the views at Le Massif and Owl’s Head are very beautiful. Tremblant is a famous destination resort and I definitely want to see that as well. Thank you!!!
  8. Hello, I would love some recommendations for a trip. As soon as the Canadian/US border reopens I would like visit Quebec for a ski safari. This will be my first visit to Quebec. I have envisioned the trip as follows: Montreal ski at Mt Tremblant visit Montreal Eastern Townships ski at 5-resorts: Mt Sutton, Mt Orford, Bromont, Owls Head, and Jay Peak Québec-Charlevoix ski at 2-resorts: Mt Ste-Anne, le Massif de Charlevoix visit Québec city A few questions: Am I missing anything? Are t
  9. Thank you for sharing the good news. This looks like an absolutely gorgeous ski area! When borders eventually reopen I would love to plan a Powder Highway ski trip including a visit to Red.
  10. I love this! The INA has some real treasures. Here’s a video from the opening of Avoriaz... notice the reindeer pulling the sleighs. They eventually had to switch to horses because apparently the reindeer were difficult to maintain.
  11. So unfortunate. I wish them all the best. Saddleback is offering a great deal through September 4 for a “test drive pass” $135 for 3 days. If you decide to purchase a season pass, the test drive fee will be credited toward the price of the season pass. if I was still in the Northeast I would jump on that deal.
  12. Montreal’s South-West borough has decided not to renew the agreement which allowed Pente à Neige to offer urban skiing at the Ignace-Bourget Park. Considering how Pente à Neige is exceptionally well placed as a “feeder hill“ teaching a new generation of skiers I think it would be very unfortunate to lose this community resource. A petition has been started requesting an administrative review. https://en.penteaneige.ca
