Nestled like a treasure among the mountains of the Laurentians is a charming village. Saint-Sauveur, though peaceful on the outside, is a truly bustling location. Take the time to walk down the streets and discover unique shops and restaurants. This valley is known for its busy calendar of cultural attractions and sports events as well as its ski centre, which offers one of the largest lit skiable areas in the province. Head up to Saint-Sauveur, less than an hour away from Montréal, and uncover a superb, magnificent region!

Enjoy the snow and the outdoors!

Are skiing and snowshoeing two of your favourite activities? Seek refuge in a log cabin at Morin-Heights Nature Camping & Cabins. Surrounded by the Laurentian forest, you’ll be just minutes from dozens of miles of hiking trails as well as the tubing centre at Mont Avila and the Viking, the only alpine rollercoaster in Quebec.

Downhill skiers and snowboarders choose the Saint-Sauveur Valley ski stations for their exceptional snow conditions. With more than 100 trails open day or night, this is the perfect destination for fun with friends and family. After a long day full of activities, soak up the electrifying atmosphere of the village, with bars and restaurants featuring DJ performances and music shows.

Lace up your skates

Skaters will find over 1.5 km of lit frozen trails at John H. Molson Park near the Saint-Sauveur Church. There are also two skating rinks, one of which is used for playing hockey, and two heated chalets. In addition, visitors can go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, or simply wander around…and it’s free!

Mark February 6 in your calendar!

The cities of Piedmont and Saint-Sauveur will be sharing hosting duties that day, which begins in Piedmont from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and continues in Saint-Sauveur from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. You can showshoe, skate, try fat biking, go dogsledding, and more.
