Skiing in the Laurentians
The Laurentians are home to one of the largest concentrations of ski centres in North America! A total of 12 centres call out to fans of snowflakes, powder snow, snow flurries and drifting snow. There are small ones, big ones, medium ones, family-fun ones. Then you have the quintessentials, the classics, the favourites. And they all have one goal: to give you a ski trip that’s nothing short of heavenly.

The Ultimate Ski Experience

Here’s something that skiers know and that the Laurentians understand: skiing is much more than just going down the slopes. Be it in Saint-Sauveur, Morin-Heights or Tremblant, skiers will discover villages that know how to pamper their visitors. You’ll find regional fine dining, cozy accommodations for resting, shops that are full of surprises and entertainment that takes you someplace new. This really is the full experience, where quality is measured not only in numbers of slopes or inches of snow, but also in once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Saint-Sauveur, King of the Mountain

And once-in-a-lifetime moments are what you’ll get at Mont-Saint-Sauveur with tons of original activities. This is where you’ll find the famous alpine rollercoaster, the Viking, and a double zipline, the Dragon, that give you a fresh take on hitting the mountain and promise loads of fun! Mont Saint-Sauveur is a mountain that has character and is renowned for its diverse collection of trails, its next-level snow park, a rustic-chic après-ski scene at T-Bar 70 and, in April, the most extreme event of the season, the Ride Shakedown!
