Gotta admit, I've never actually ridden Sutton, but we stopped by last year for a day off while at Jay Peak. It's pretty close. I was impressed...it looked like a lot of fun, with lots of blacks, double blacks and glades, and an impressive trail layout (check out the trail map). I'm looking forward to checking it out this year. Just mid-sized, 1,500 ft of vert, but really quiet and seemed to have that cool French vibe. Of course, I could be wrong...I never hear anyone talk about riding there.

I was at Mount Tremblant this summer (I know, but family vacation..) and it did look like it would be awesome, I'd like to go back sometime this winter (when theres actually snow on the ground :P)

I would guess all the talk of Blue Mountain is because it is "local" to many Ontarians, you'd probably need to look at some French-speaking forums to find people who frequent the Quebec resorts. That said, Tremblant is more of a tourist destination than just a ski/snowboard spot. I visited it once and it was certainly nice to be able to have a fancy dinner in the village after a day on the slopes, but if I lived in the area, I'd go for a more low key resort, just to keep costs under control

The actual slopes were definitely more challenging compared to Blue Mountain - steeper, longer. Having survived those iced-up slopes, I thought I was invincible when I came back to Ontario

This doesn't make sense. Flights from YYZ to out west are $1.5- 2k round trip for the flight alone! How would that be saving a couple hundred? Driving to Quebec would only cost around $500, and that's if you take a gas guzzler... Food is cheap there, and you can stay at a hotel not on the resort for decent prices, heck even on the resort if you to to the less known ones...

Depends on timing too. Flights in December can really get out of control and well in excess of $1K roundtrip.

Another thing is if you travel with a group (2-3-4 people), the airfare will increase linearly, but the cost of a car trip is the same for a small group as for a single person.

This. 4 of us went to Massiff last year for $450 each including passes, hotel, rental, gas and 5 course meals. Good luck finding a flight for that cheap (JUST flight mind you) right now or Christmas break time...

He lives in the US guys, not Toronto. Flight prices to other US cities are cheaper than what we have here. I know we get bent over in Canada for flights, but not as bad down there.
