Le Massif Ski Information

General information

For the days when you don’t feel like skiing take a trip to the frozen falls at Montmorency Falls Park. The falls are higher than the Niagara falls and cable cars, lookouts and trails bring you close enough to get a good look at the falls. If you have your own transport, why not take a scenic drive along the St Lawrence River and through the Charlevoix region which has much to offer in the way of magnificent scenery and quaint villages and towns, which also have art galleries where you can admire the work of many local artists or visit La Laiterie where you will be able to see the cheese making process Take a trip into Quebec City which is only an hour away and while away the time visiting the museums or shopping in the narrow streets of Le Quartier de Petite Champlain, where you will find boutiques, Canadian artwork, crafts, clothing and much more. At the Galeries de la Capitale there are not only plenty of shops on hand but an amusement centre as well.

Apres-ski

There is not much of an Apres Ski scene in Le Massif itself, however, Baie-Sainte-Paul is not far away and is the largest and nearest town and offers a variety of nightlife activities If you have the energy after a day on the slopes take the trip to Quebec City where you will find an even bigger nightlife scene.

Overview

This picturesque resort in the heart of the Charlevoix region of Quebec offers fantastic views for both the skiers and the tourist. Le Massif is located above the banks of the St Lawrence River and offers skiers 36 runs and the highest vertical drop of 770 metres east of the Canadian Rockies. The owners of the reserve have worked extremely hard to preserve the rugged natural beauty of this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Yearly snowfalls in this area usually exceed 600cm which makes it ideal for great skiing and snowboarding. Quebec City is an hour’s drive from Le Massif therefore making it an ideal day trip for when skiing is not on the agenda.
