Mont Tremblant, QC

Quebec Ski Resorts Ranked & Mapped

Quebec has a surprising amount of ski resorts. Most are in the area surrounding the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City.

List of All Quebec Ski Resorts

Skiing can get expensive. Besides equipment rentals, ski lift passes are expensive and really add up if you have a family. To combat this, multi-resort, multi-day lift passes were created to help offset this cost a bit. Buying lift pass days in bulk will usually net you around a 20% discount.

However, Quebec only has one ski resort that is a part of a pass like this. Mont Tremblant is a part of the IKON pass.

Explaining Our ‘Difficulty Score’

Parks & Trips created a proprietary Difficulty Score that is generated by looking at the number of easy-intermediate-expert slopes by acreage and the maximum vertical drop of the overall resort.

Our algorithm compares each resort’s metrics with all others in North America, then gives each a Difficulty Score, which we use to rank them accordingly. Resorts with a lower score are easier than those with a higher one. However, a high score does not mean that the resort does not have any easy slopes, or vice versa. This is just an overall score given to the resort based on all its metrics grouped together.

The Most Difficult Quebec Ski Resorts

Mont Tremblant is considered the hardest ski resort in the province of Quebec. Massif du Sud comes in a very close second place. Both rate over half of their trails as expert-level. Mont Tremblant also has the highest vertical drop in the province.

The Easiest Ski Resorts in Quebec

There are many, many easy ski areas in Quebec. These are mostly community ski hills with little-to-no expert or intermediate hills, and are meant to be fun for the whole family, no matter the age. Val-Mauricie is the easiest ski area with at least one intermediate-rated hill in it.

The Largest Ski Resorts in Quebec

Choosing the largest ski resorts is a bit of a tricky proposition. Do you look at just the summit elevation? How about the total acreage, most trails, or steepest vertical drop?

Well, we decided to combine all four of those metrics into one ranking to get the best idea, although we fully admit this is completely subjective. We’ve given you all the data in the following table to make your own decision.

Le Massif has the highest vertical drop at 770 m (2527 ft). Mont Tremblant has the most skiable acreage and Bromont has the most trails in the province.
