Mont Avila Ski Area, aka Versant Avila is part of the Laurentian Mountains, approximately 45 minutes north of Montreal, Canada. The resort is located in the Saint Sauveur Valley, a beautiful area surrounded by mountains, and a popular winter recreation destination that dates back to the early 1900’s earning it the reputation as the home of the Quebec Ski Industry.

Mont Avila Ski Area is known throughout the region as a welcoming place to learn to ski or snowboard. There is a dedicated learning area along with a chairlift to make your first experience on the slopes a smooth one. Mont Avila ski area strives to provide the ultimate family experience both day and night, offering skiing every day of the week on all 13 trails.

In 1989, after years of effort by Jacques G Hebert, president of Mont Saint Sauveur International (MSSI) the individual ski areas of Mont Saint Sauveur and Mont Avila jointed together. This collaboration now provided skiers and riders easy access to both trail systems through the interconnected trail layout.
