Le Massif Terrain

The Mountain plays the role of beacon in the Massif de Charlevoix project. Its panoramic environment proposes 770 metres of vertical, the highest East of the Canadian Rockies. Here 401 acres of skiable terrain come blanketed under more than abundant natural snow coverage, with 99 acres devoted solely to off-trail skiing. 53 all-calibre trails and glades sail straight down a magical landscape that dominates the St. Lawrence River and the neighbouring islands, as ice flowes slowly slip by, and where salt and fresh water mingle as one.

Beyond spectacular terrain with riverside views, unique because of its summit access and uncommon natural attributes, The Mountain boasts distinctive attractions: cuisine adapted to the needs of sports enthusiasts (no fried-foods), a permanent art collection that graces its chalets walls and a full line-up of events – from gastronomy and sports, to music and culture – with shows and hot après skis that spotlight top names from the Québec music scene.

Over a period of 2 h, the offered formula includes Cat-taxi transportation from Summit Chalet to rodeling trail head on Mont Liguori.

The Train of Le Massif de Charlevoix is launching the Excursion to the Mountain, a rail cruise that combines the pleasures of gastronomy with those of a slide sport experience.
