Quebec

Quebec, Canada

If you enjoy Europe and the Old-World feel of things, a ski vacation in Quebec, Canada may be just the thing for you. The Laurentide Mountains to the north of charming Quebec City hold a plethora of winter vacation sports delights for skiers and snowboarders. A winter carnival is always afoot in Quebec province!

What Makes Quebec Unique

Quebec City may be a North American city, but it's a European enigma, too! In the old part of this city, you'll find cobblestone streets, horse and carriage taxis, shops build below and above street level, winter carnivals including vast ice sculptures. There's even a walled castle sitting high atop a hill at the mouth of the waterway, prepared to defend Quebec against invasion! The Chateau Frontinac remains a premiere destination and most everyone takes fond memories with them when they leave. From simple old-world fare to seven-course gourmet meals served in strict French tradition you'll find many dishes to tantalize your taste buds in old Quebec. Then pass over into the new side of town, and you're in a major metropolitan city with all of the modern conveniences – and they speak English on the new side of the city! One could easily spend days exploring Quebec City alone.

Of course the other winter activities all thrive in Quebec as well. Aside from skiing and snowboarding, there's cross-country skiing, snowshoeing excursions, snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice skating, ice climbing, seeing the awesome ice sculptures, visiting the maple syrup sugar shacks. Between it all, you'll find far more to do than time to do it, throughout this amazing Canadian province.

Major Ski Areas

The skiing is first-class in Quebec province. Mt. Blanc, the second highest peak in the region, welcomes families with warmth and excitement! All in all, there are fourteen ski resorts in the Laurentides, some of them still privately owned with a clientele that returns year after year. Each has its own specialty. Mount Alta, for example, proudly continues a Limited Grooming practice that delights expert skiers, while Grey Rocks offers outstanding learning opportunities for novice skiers.

For après-ski there's the Old World charm, as well as a number of enticements, which are strictly Canadian. The working Sugar Shacks, for example, and the winter terrain feel comfortable, like an old friend. The quintessential Christmas Card feel of the alpine areas will most certainly have you charmed.

Discover the Laurentides, explore them for yourself! There's a good chance you'll find your next favorite vacation place in this hidden treasure for downhill skiers and snowboarders. With its European roots, Quebec truly is the Paris of the North. A winter wonderland awaits you in Quebec, Canada!
