For $99 for a season's night pass, its the best deal close to Ottawa for night skiing. The weekends are too crowded and the lines move too slow for my liking, but the hill has some nice wide runs so you can take your time. I learned to ski at Edelweiss 25 years ago and the lodge hasn't changed a whole lot.

When you dont have the time to go further to a better hill, Edelweiss satisfies compared to other hills in the region.
