Full review

Had breakfast in the lodge at 8 am, was good, full breakfast for $8, was on the slopes at 9, everything is pretty much open, Cheval Blanc was good, No Ice anywhere, Betsy was steep & deep., Lots of kids on Vanier, some ski schools going on, the place was fairly full, but no real problems on lift line, nice to see that McGill U. & Concordia U. had Buses in the parking lot & were skiing at Mont St Marie rather than some of those other Quebec Resorts., Mont St Marie should open up some of the old runs that are now closed.. & maybe open some new runs.. the place has been now open going on 50 years, It needs a Motel or Hotel with a restaurant & bar at the Base, .. Really there is not much at the mountain after the skiing closes for the Day.. Mont St Marie is the best skiing within an hour of Ottawa, Come on up.. It has some elevation & the runs are the longest in the region.
