Full review

I enjoyed skiing Orford. Definitely worth the drive past Bromont. There are no line ups during the week, and the gondola move things along nicely on the weekends. The grand coulee is a fun run with great views. The smaller mountain Derochers is a nice easy/intermediate area that usually has the best snow and few people. It was pretty icy at times and can get very windy. Resonable prices and cheap membership. Good chalet with friendly bar, some good tunes playing sometimes. Magog and Orford have some nice shops, pubs, and restaurants. Nice place to stay if you're spending some time in the Townships.
