Mont Sainte Anne in Quebec and Escape2ski provides info on; vertical drop 2625ft/800m, total trails 71, closest airport 36mi/57km, lifts 9, webcams & more.
The ski area is located within the limits of the town of Beaupre, Quebec in the Laurentian Mountain Range of Quebec, Canada. Beaupre is situated along the shores of the St Lawrence River, which is a major transportation waterway.
The gentle sloping farmland rises out from the shores of the river and leads back to rising mountains where Mont Sainte Anne is located. The history of the Beaupre area and the region dates back to the 17th century when sailors stumbled upon this beautiful region. Beaupre is steeped in history, as well as culture and entertainment, and attracts people throughout the entire year.
Skiing on what is known today as Mont Sainte Anne dates back to 1943 when a group of volunteers from the local area and Quebec City cut the first trail. However, the ski area known as Mont Sainte Anne was the vision of Anneliese Surman and Jack Perry who thought this location would be perfect for a ski facility. After several years of planning, Mont Sainte Anne opened to the public on January 16, 1966, with ten trails and four lifts, one with a Gondola. And in 1967 the ski area hosted alpine events for the first Canadian Winter Games that took place in Quebec City.
The ski resort has grown from its early beginnings to a place where skiers and snowboarders can enjoy slopes on three sides of the mountain, and a pedestrian village with the amenities for shopping, dining and ski-in/ski-out options.
Today, the ski area is known as a magnificent family-friendly four-season resort that provides incredible views of the farmlands below along with the St Lawrence River.
The ski area is owned and operated by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies and is a resort that has earned a reputation that stretches well beyond the local area and Canada.
