Mont Blanc

Ski resorts in Canada
Skiers and snowboarders from Montreal and the surrounding area are familiar with the big white mountain and the Mont Blanc ski resort that provides a family-friendly atmosphere. It has one of the higher elevations for a winter venue in the Laurentian Mountains of southern Quebec. The Robinson family has owned and operated the ski area since 1976.

Those driving here will use the Trans-Canadian Highway A 15 north from Montreal before transferring to Route 117. The resort is within the municipality of Saint-Faustin–Lac-Carré. Those flying here will use the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport. Americans can use Interstate 87 or I-91 to drive into the Province of Quebec.

Family Owned and Family Focused

Visitors here will appreciate the non-corporate vibe, especially if they are looking for a family getaway in the snow. An example of this is the lodging provided by Hébergement Mont Blanc, with condos with one to three bedrooms. They sit on the slopes, at the base area, and lakeside. With occupancies between two and eight people, families of all sizes can find accommodations for spending the night.

The typical ski season around here goes from December through April, depending upon the conditions. An average annual snowfall of 121 inches provides a decent snow base, with staff at the Mont Blanc ski resort supplementing this with snowmaking capabilities over a majority of the terrain. Several parking areas give quick access to the three faces, in addition to the village area between Mont Faustin and Mont Blanc Nord.

Equipment rentals provide guests with quality gear that matches their size and ability. Those needing a quick repair or a tune-up before traveling uphill for a run can also get service at the shop. Dining options are available at several locations, allowing guests to grab and go or sit down and enjoy a respite while they meet up and eat.

Several programs and classes through the Ski School will get family members up on one or two planks with quality instruction. Specialty programs for instructor apprentices 12 and older or pre-competition programs offer more in-depth instruction and are popular with locals who visit often.

Lots of Advanced Terrain

The Mont Blanc ski area offers guests a 690-foot vertical drop to work down. That may not sound overwhelming at first, but the terrain here can be steep, making it challenging to ski or ride down. There are over 150 acres of skiable terrain to choose from, with three mountain slopes covered by 43 trails.

Guest at the Mont Blanc ski area has two beginner areas that keep newbies entertained, providing them with terrain features that are ideal for practicing fundamentals. There are also two snow parks here, which offer a break from traditional downhill skiing and riding. Visitors can work enhanced features to land tricks or put air between themselves and the snow.

Eight trails at Mont Blanc are rated green for beginners, with an additional 11 runs marked as blue for intermediates. Black diamond ratings can be found on 18 runs here, along with another six runs rated as double diamond. Mont Blanc has seven lifts to keep everyone moving uphill.
