Best mountain in Eastern Canada

Hey guys i posted this earlier but it was in the wrong section. I was wondering if you guys have any opinions on which mountain is the best to go to in eastern canada. I live in NY and have been going to vermont a lot and want a change. Will canada be any different? I was looking at Mont Tremblant because its rated the number 1 resort in the east. But in this forum i see a lot about blue mountain. Where should i go? Thanks

Blue Mountain is probably the best spot in Ontario. Pretty sure it's the largest. However, if you're looking at east coast Canada as a whole, Mt Tremblant is the spot to go. Way more terrain to play with.

Blue Mountain does't have any vert close to Vermont or Quebec. In, Quebec, Mt. St. Anne, Tremblant and Le Massif all have over 2k ft vert.

In Ontario, Blue Mountain has 740ish ft vert. Horseshoe Valley has over 400 or so ft and Mt. St. Loius Moonstone has maybe 500 ft?

The one's in Ontario have good terrain parks though if that's what you are after.

Don't come to ontario from NY for the riding, waste of your time. Def go to Quebec.

Tremblant or le massif or mt st Anne.

Avoid Xmas, lineups are crazy then. Just before Xmas can be good.

Early jan also good, it slows down a little after New Years.

I had done great spring conditions there late march last year.

As far as vert in Ontario, Calabogie Peaks is the highest. That right there says all you need to know. As was said, Quebec is a better bet.

Yes Calabogie Peaks is the highest. I was there for the first time on boxing day and it was amazing. Best hill I've ever been on, although I've never been riding outside of Ontario.

not sure what you're looking for, but the eastern townships in Quebec is worth considering

Orford, Sutton, Owl's Head & Bromont are all within driving distance of each other so you could hit multiple mountains

generally cheaper and more laid back then Tremblant
