Great skiing, great proce

This hill is amazing. It is at least twice the height of Blue Mountain! The lines here are also not bad at all. I have never waited more than 10 minutes in a lift line and often... read more

This hill is amazing. It is at least twice the height of Blue Mountain! The lines here are also not bad at all. I have never waited more than 10 minutes in a lift line and often here is no line! My kids (ages 4-11) do the Christmas ski camp from 10-12 each day. This gives the wife and I... More

This is a very nice ski hill with lots of unrealised potential. The natural terrain is excellent with some nice ski runs, however it seems like management does not perceive skiers as customers. We pre-purchased a number of reduced rate ski passes last season. unfortunately, due to snowboarding mishap (at this mountain...) we were unable to use some of the... More

Too bad for such a beautiful area to have such a poorly managed ski resort. Your best be, if your planning to spend a weekend or a day skiing, drive the distance further to anywhere in the Laurentians or the Eastern Townships and avoid the hassle of having to deal with Mont Ste Marie's overpriced cafeteria and poorly groomed hills....

Visited on Wednesday January 20th 2016. I haven't skiied in 10 years, but was looking to get back into it. While the website and NUMEROUS employees at the ski hill indicated that three green routes were open, it turns out that the "bunny hills" are only operational on the weekend, and that due to a tournament part of the ONLY...

Best place I know, just to unwind-with the lookout view with lake Ste-Marie being at the foothills it's just breathtaking. The mountains are majestic and almost magical.

Just went to the annual Velo Fest Mont Ste Marie and had to write a review to let others know how fantastic this event is. Organized by the local community and proceeds go to developing the local mountain bike trails which are quickly becoming some of the best in the Outaouais region. They run the chairlift for the weekend and... More

An hour's drive from Gatineau, this place is fab. We visited for a Snowboard Cross competition for my 13 year old - and everyone was very welcoming. The runs are long (for this side of Canada!), wide and generally steep. Only one run for beginners, so it's fab for those who love to ski/snowboard on more intermediate/advanced runs. The chalet...

My wife and I have skied Mont Ste-Marie a dozen times a year for the past five years. As far as we are concerned, it is the only place to ski around Ottawa. There are two excellent mountains each with over 1200 ft vertical. (Fully twice as high as other area hills). Each mountain has a high speed detachable quad... More
