From start to finish, we loved our day here! I started with a full breakfast from the self-serve cafeteria. The ladies assisted me, despite my limited French skills, and made me a beautiful plate of eggs, meats and cheese, and fruit with 4 huge slices of country bread and coffee. Wonderful! Then we did some people watching on the slopes... More

Hi Mariettas, We're glad you liked your experience with us! The sledding is an amazing and unique experience, since you go down for 7,5 km. It's the longest sled run in North America! We hope to see you soon, Frédéric Sujobert, General Manager of Le Massif de Charlevoix Mountain More

This ski resort is fabulous, with challenging terrain, runs that are thoughtfully cut and a panorama of the St. Lawrence river that is unique. As the mountain is directly adjacent to the north shore of the river there are a few runs that provide the illusion that you'll end up in in the drink. There is one run on the... More

Excellent skiing and incredible view (Dec 31 2014). A little less than a half hour drive from Beaupré but well worth it; as good or better than Mont Ste Anne but a lot less crowded! Well worth it in every way.

We skied here as a family on New Years Day 2014. It snowed all day... fresh powder and most of their runs open. My teenage kids were in Heaven!! We parked at the summit which is convenient. Drove from our spot at Mont Sainte Anne- about 20 minutes. Well worth the drive! Over 50% of the runs are black diamond-... More

Visited after harsh weather (strong rains) but the skiing was superb. They covered almost all the icy spots in time, although in the high-traffic areas you could still hit some ice, but that's peanuts. The skiing experience is very good and leaves taste for more. The views are just breathtaking, and the lines are very short. Also, the green trails... More

I'm an avid skier and I never saw triple diamond sign which I see on this mountain. The blues have moguls that are big and steep and should be labeled double black! Anywhere in the world, I'm a double diamond skier but here I'm only green.

Great resort with fantastic runs throughout with an amazing view. Very good varied terrain all around. This was my 3rd year going in the last 5, and must say I was a bit disappointed this time around.
