Full review

I was impressed with Mt. Orford. I went for a day on a Friday. Not very crowded. Main chair and gondola worked well. The hills were very challenging, many with moguls, although some of the steeper slopes were a little icy. I enjoy glades skiing but some of the hills were closed, although given the amount of snow this year I am not sure why. The mountain itself is very high for Quebec standards with a good vertical drop, just a little less than Tremblant. This is a true mountain for skiers, as opposed to ski tourists like Tremblant. It is far superior in terms of challenging hills to Mt. St. Sauveur or (shudder) Blue Mountain in Ontario. My biggest complaint: lack of vegetarian and healthy options in cafeteria but on the other hand, it does have a great cafe with espresso, cappuccino etc. I would definitely go to Orford again
