We wanted to have a good walk in the snow as the weather was gorgeous. We arrived at 1:00 PM only to find that the parking was full as the present staff hadn't managed properly the allocated spaces. Consequently, where there should have been 2 rows of cars, there was only one. Their only advice was to park on the... More

Management response:

Thank you for your comments. I am very surprised at the situation you describe as our parking lot generally has at least 3 if not 4 rows of parking. We are also at least 1km from the road. I can only imagine that it may have been a day when there was a huge attendance at Mont Sutton ski station... More

Sutton is one of those hidden gems, just four miles from Vermont and 90 miles from Montreal. Great skiing in winter and many miles of bike paths plus many excellent rstaurants

We skied here last Sunday just after a 6" snowfall and conditions were fantastic. There is a great variety of trails, mostly all wooded and all are well marked. This place ranks better than an any cross country area we have skied in northern new england.

There is nothing this place doesn't have: new cross-country skis and snow shoes to rent. Excellent trails well-groomed. Warm refuge. Large parking lot. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Support the coop!!

While Donna and I were wandering in Sutton, someone mentioned a Plien Air coop. Donna is an avid professional plien air watercolorist so we got directions, hopped in the car with only a cursory glance at TripAdvisor (North of “the border” our data is both expensive and erratic) and headed up the mountain. Those of you who have read the... More

Went there on our second day in Sutton and really enjoyed ourselves. Plenty of parking with an overflow parking as well. There is a small shack where you can wax your skies and a larger chalet where coffee, hot chocolate and some granola bars are available for purchase. There are a few tables and even a fireplace.

We went to Pleinairsutton.coop for a bit of cross country skiing. Having never tried cross country before, I didn't really know exactly what I was getting myself into. Thankfully it was beginner friendly! The staff were friendly, and didn't mind that our French was pitiful at best. There had been a record snowfall the previous day, so there were no... More

This aerial treetop adventure is not to be missed so long as you have a head for heights! You get from one tree to another in all sorts of ways : by zipline, tightrope, swinging logs, swings etc etc. At points you may be 60 feet up in the trees and although firmly attached by a climbing harness and carabiners...

My husband and I stayed nearby (one driveway over) at the Agnes Horth (incredible!) When we were there- 12-16 inches of powder fell- it was absolutely breathtaking! 32 degrees (F) and we broke a new trail (b/c tracks hidden under the new snow). Trail c was adventurous and absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the respite (woodstove) and would be interested in... More
