Ski resorts in Canada
With deep connections to the FIS (especially in snowboarding), the Stoneham ski resort has built a reputation for fast slopes and challenging terrain in Quebec and beyond. It is also home to one of the largest networks of nighttime runs in Canada. Add to these the fact that the winter venue sits just a few miles north of Quebec City, and there is little room to guess why it is so popular with skiers and snowboarders in the area and beyond the Province's borders.

Drivers can use either Autoroute 73 or Route 371 to exit Quebec City northbound. The facilities sit within Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury, Quebec. Anyone planning to fly here will likely use the Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport.

Top-Tier Facilities with Urban Access

A key factor that many skiers and snowboarders overlook when planning their alpine trip is access to amenities and services, both of which the Stoneham ski resort provides. While mountain stats and snowfall amounts are the critical factors in one's trip, accommodations like those found at the ski-in/ski-out hotel add to their experience. The Halte-O-Spa, located in the hotel, will help guests relax after getting beat up on the slopes. Apres-ski at the Quatre-Foyers Bar gives visitors a chance to drink, eat, and socialize. Sitting only 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City means that lodging, drinks, food, entertainment, and retail are found in abundance nearby.

A retail outlet on-site sells the accessories and clothing folks need to enjoy their stay (and showcase their trip after). Daycare for children two and older allows parents to carve the pow while the little ones are kept happy and safe near the main chalets at the Stoneham ski resort. A tuning shop gets everyone's equipment ready for the snow and rents regular or high-performance gear.

The ski school at the Stoneham winter venue offers group and private lessons for first-timers, second classes, and families. Those wanting more personal attention can purchase private instruction from one to six hours in duration. The resort also offers lessons in adaptive skiing for those with physical and mental impairments (amputees, paraplegics, visually impaired, intellectual disabilities, etc.).

Skiing, Snowboarding, and Terrain Parks

A base elevation of 814 feet and a summit of 1,946 feet generates the 1,132-foot vertical rise at the Stoneham ski area. Three peaks provide over 300 acres of skiable terrain within a total area of over 2,000 acres of land. That offers guests access to a full range of terrain ratings, making it a place anyone can ski or ride. Fast slopes and tricky terrain features favor advanced skiers and riders, though.

There are 43 alpine trails at the Stoneham ski area, including the 19 runs that help make one of the largest nighttime venues in Canada. These trails rate as green/beginner (eight runs, or 19-percent), blue/intermediate (11 runs, or 26-percent), black diamond/advanced (17 runs, 39-percent), and double black diamond/expert (seven runs, or 16-percent).

Stoneham gets over 169 inches of snowfall annually, with snowmaking available on 86-percent of the skiable terrain. Six lifts create an uphill capacity of 10,550 guests an hour. The Stoneham ski resort also maintains three park zones and an Olympic half-pipe.
