Village close to the hill. Nice long runs. Gondola. Great Ski School and instructors. Breathtaking views of the River.Microwaves on site for box lunches.
It's a leap to go from greens to blues, especially on the south side. Ice makes them black. Food on site is expensive.

Full review

We spent Family day and the next 3 days skiing at Mont Ste. Anne. I put the kids in a four day ski adventure camp run by the ski school and they had a fantastic time. The instructors were excellent and I saw real improvement over the time we were there. Instructors were bilingual and friendly. My daughter practiced some of her French when she felt comfortable to do so. Lunches were included and they were good, large meals. I took a couple of lessons myself during the week and my instructor was great! Lessons are a bit expensive ($100 for 1.5 hour group lesson) but I ended up solo in one lesson and with my spouse on the second lesson, so I got a great deal in the end. Because Quebec does not celebrate Family Day, the hills were not busy. We didn't line up once the entire time were were there. Some Americans were up for President's Day and spring Break, but I expected there to be many more with the low Canadian dollar. The Gondola is fast and gives you a great view of the area. I just wish the green or easier blues ended at the Gondola. The other lifts were fast too. One has a cover you can pull down to keep the wind down. I found the greens to be "green", but some of the blues on the south side were very steep and I would consider them closer to black at other hills. The north side was a bit more steady in pitch. I have skied at Gore and Bristol mountains and are more comfortable on the blues there than on the south side of Mt. Ste. Anne. The kids enjoyed the green and blue glades runs on the north side. The layout at MSA is well thought out and you can be on the hill quickly. Sleds are around if you need to move a bunch of gear. Guides are very friendly and helpful and everywhere. My French is not good, but everyone was bilingual, so we never had a issue. Ski Patrol was quick to respond to a fall on the hill and other staff helped out where they could. The cafeterias are expensive, but you can bring a boxed lunch. Microwaves are available for heating up food at the base and summit chalets. Accommodations are available right at the hill or close by. The village of Beaupre is 2-3 km away and it has regular grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants etc. to make the stay comfortable. Quebec city is about a half hour away. We took in some sights, including the Aquarium and had a few nice meals in Old Quebec. We took in Stoneham on the last day of our trip for a little variety. It is run by the same company as MSA and only a half hour away. We bought the Cannon Card at MSA and we could use it at Stoneham as well. We didn't do any night skiing because of the kids, but it looked beautiful from our condo.
