Wonderful ski hills, helpful staff. Short lineups (if any at all). Family friendly, couples friendly. Great food served in the cafeteria (compared to other ski resorts i've been to - where the food is generally quite dismal). My kids are absolutely in love the with the place. Worth the extra 45 min drive to get to it past Mont St.... More

I loved this terrain. I Have skied all over. This has challenging and easy runs. It has triple diamond run that will make your palms sweat. My advise try it. The views are spectacular looks like you are going to ski right into the water. Simply breathtaking views with the hardest terrain.

Most ski resorts have great views, but the landscape of Le Massif is stunning. The beauty of skiing over the St Lawrence river is unmatched in my experience. The slopes here are relatively challenging. Certainly my favourite on the east coast. You'd best be fit - this might be the highest vertical east of the rockies! A very friendly resort.... More

Fantastic slope, friendly staff, great view. We got the annual Saint Paddys day snow storm powder and had a great time. Would go again for sure!

We all had a great time here, skiing is outstanding and sometimes the views are completely distracting. The variety of terrain is mind boggling. We did notice that most people are good solid skiers here and with good reason. It's not at all a beginner mountain. Keep that in mind when choosing where to ski in Quebec, Mont St Anne... More

My wife and I visited Le Massif for the first time today. The skiing was great and the views were magnificent. What was particularly interesting is that one starts at the summit of Le Massif where the main lodge and parking lots are situated, and skies toward the St Lawrence, which acts as a stunning backdrop, particularly on a sunny...

We travelled to Le Massif from Montreal and two of our group were visiting from Burlington, VT. The facilities are top notch and the trails and terrain are nice with fantastic views of the St Laurence river down below. My only complaint is that we pre purchased ski lift tickets for Le Massif online for the three consecutive days we... More

This was our first trip to LeMassif and it was spectacular. The runs are very long and the views are stunning. There are tons of challenging runs but don't believe the other reviews about no trails for beginners. There is a nice beginner hill seperate from the rest of the hill and there are tons of easy blue trails and... More

Over the past twenty years Le Massif has grown from a little known hill that could only be reached by way of a narrow road down to Petit Riviere Saint Francois to a world class destination that is used for training by the Canadian ski team. There are many reasons to choose Le Massif over other Quebec and New England... More

After many years we finally made it to Le Massif and we were not disappointed. The terrain is outstanding for an experienced skiing family. The scenery is spectacular and the level of grooming left some challenge to the skiing which we appreciated. The summit lodge was crowded at lunch time but we simply extended our skiing and went in at... More
