Living in Montreal gives us great access to some of the best ski resorts in eastern North America. Within an easy drive of our home, there are many ski centers which offer scores of trails suitable to every level of difficulty.

Admittedly, there are no Rocky Mountains or Swiss Alps here.

Ski East or North?

At the end of the day, Montreal has two ski regions. There are the hills to the North in the Laurentians, or to the East in the Townships.

The Laurentians, are home the highest peak in eastern Canada, and one of North America’s best ski resorts, Mont-Tremblant

Located 130km/80miles north of Montreal, this region is definitely the most popular with tourists.

As a year round destination, Mont-Tremblant brings in an average of 2.3 million visitors each year.

It has been given top honours in well respected publications like Forbes and Ski Magazine.

Unlike the Laurentians, the townships do not have a direct daily jet service from New York City.

This region is not as well known, or as commercially developped as the larger resorts further north. However, we still consider the skiing to be superb.

It's also a great place to go searching for a cheap ski vacation.

Let's put a dollar figure on deal.
