It's a slightly smaller hill, with just two lodges as the rental center and cafetaria. No touristy village like Blue or Tremblant. I like it cause it's 30 minutes closer to me than Blue and right off the 400, instead of crawling along some Barrie Police infested road at 80. It can be very decent when it's good.

It's actually been pretty good here around Quebec City. December was terrible, but we've made up for it with quite a bit of snow throughout Jan-Feb-Mar and almost no rain (until tomorrow at least, haha). Check out the depth map to see what I'm talking about: NOHRSC Interactive Snow Information
Even in the city there's quite a bit of snow on the ground: http://powderwatch.com/qzone/wp-cont...2/DSC00665.jpg
Le Massif de Charlevoix & Le Valinouet have both been getting dumped on consistently (412/530cm date), both have deep snowpacks (140/180cm), and probably the best conditions east of the Rockies. Not to mention the fact that Le Massif puts every other hill in eastern Canada to shame! Here's a little blog I wrote this week about a day at Le Massif: Le Massif day trip blog
Massif de Charlevoix - that's my recommendation.

wow amazing blog post! i have to admit that looking at your pics gave me a little boner in my heart. i was also toying with the idea of trying vermont but i'd rather not have to cross the border if i don't have to. thanks for the heads up
