Mont Sutton

Ski resorts in Canada
Over 200 junctions and glade skiing make up nearly half of the terrain at the Mont Sutton ski resort, allowing skiers and snowboarders to choose their adventure with every run. Since the Boulanger family opened the winter facilities in 1960, it has built a reputation for providing a natural skiing and riding experience in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

Motorists will use Autoroute 10 east from Montreal, with transfers to several highways eventually placing drivers onto Route 215 at Sutton, Quebec. Those flying into the area will likely use the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport. Americans traveling up from the New England region will find Vermont's State Highway 139 north of Richford the most direct route.

Skiing and Snowboarding the Eastern Townships

The Eastern Townships receive a decent amount of winter storms that dump on the area, and the Mont Sutton ski resort gets an average annual snowfall exceeding 154 inches. Snowmaking capabilities only cover about half the slopes here, but that is due more to the glades than other factors. Most snowmaking covers the lower portions of the winter venue across popular runs. The glades cover approximately 45-percent of the terrain here, providing natural skiing conditions and minimal grooming or supplementation by machines.

The Mont Sutton ski area does not maintain lodging facilities, so visitors must find accommodations elsewhere. Several nearby inns and hotels provide rooms that match guests' budgets and party sizes, with package deals available for most. Bar Le Tucker offers apres-ski once guests are ready to meet up and tell tales about their experiences that day. There are four chalets at the Mont Sutton ski area that can keep guests fueled while offering fireplaces to warm up in three of them. Daily and seasonal rentals let unequipped snow hounds play on the slopes, with repair and tune-up services for sale to get personal gear ready for the snow.

A Ski Shop has a knowledgeable staff that can get anyone matched with the gear they need based on interests, and it also sells branded items and slope necessities. The demo center lets customers check something out before buying it and make sure it fits right.

Glade Skiing Mecca

One thing offered at the Mont Sutton ski area during the Winter months is Yooner exploration. A Yooner combines sledding and skiing into one device, offering a unique way to travel across the snow. Each season, alpine tours highlight features at the winter venue and give insight to great places to try a run or two. Several trees around the resort have carvings in them, giving kids of all ages something to look for while skiing or riding the slopes at Mont Sutton.

There is a 1,500-foot vertical drop at the resort, with roughly 230 skiable acres of terrain. The resort is known for its glade skiing, and 45-percent of the grounds here are glades of various skill levels. Mont Sutton has 204 junctions, meaning that skiers and snowboarders can create a unique path each time they come downhill.

Sixty runs at Mont Sutton break down as green/easy (15), blue/intermediate (18), black diamond/advanced (11), and double black diamond/expert (16).
