In your opinion, which mountain would be better for an intermediate to enjoy? Will most likely doing single blacks and lots of blues, and trying out glades as well (but pretty much zero experience in the woods)
For sure le Massif! It's no comparrisson at all. In fact I can't think of a single aspect where MSA would be better. Last year I didn't go to Massif until springtime because I had season passes to MSA/Stoneham/Relais. I did about 40-50 days at those hills and would trade them all in a heartbeat for a couple more days at Massif.

I think we're pretty much set on Le Massif now.

Where did you stay? Any recommendations for accommodation? I know they don't have a village, and their hotel is about 10min (not planning on taking their 'train' option as its not worth it)

I stayed at home since I was living fairly close (chute montmorency)
If u want to stay close to the hill I suggest this place: AUBERGE LE FOUR A PAIN - Petite riviere St-Francois - Quebec Great atmosphere, cheap rate, very close. Petite Riviere st Francois has a couple other places. Baie st Paul has hotels and is 10-15min away. Beaupre is only 20min away and quebec city is 42mins. There are many affordable hotels along Blvd St Anne as you come into town from Le Massif way (ie: hotel ambassadeur, le regewnt, etc)

How is blue right now? I booked a trip for this weekend and they're calling for rain fingers crossed that it stays below freezing this week. They're not always right?

I was there the last two weekends. The conditions on this past Saturday night were good, couple inches of snow with hard pack and ice underneath. Crowds are ridiculous though, lines were approx 15 minutes long and a lot of the runs were crowded as well. Do yourself a favour and take the singles line, it will save you a lot of time.

Do you know if they stay open if it rains? I have no other weekend to go and would lose my mind if I went and couldn't ride.
