It’s On For Six Weeks Of Spring Skiing At Mont-Sainte-Anne

It’s On For Six Weeks Of Spring Skiing At Mont-Sainte-Anne

Live music is the order of the day in Mont Sainte Anne's Spring Madness. (Mont Sainte Anne)

Quebec's Mont-Sainte-Anne is ready to embrace six weeks of spring skiing. Every year, the resort is the last one to close in Quebec region, and one of the last in the Eastern North America. The projected closing date for this season is April 30.


 

All April, the traditional Spring Madness will be back with five weekends of sunny terraces, live outdoor band performances and sugar shack on the slopes. A spring ski pass, giving unlimited access to both Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham Mountain Resort, is now valid and can still be purchased.

spring Mont Sainte Anne

Many believe the best part of spring skiing is the après-ski. Mont-Sainte-Anne understands that very well, which is why you'll see live bands with outdoor performances every Saturday at 3:00 on the stage at the base of the mountain. On Sundays, it’s a DJ that will keep the party going. And for the lucky ones that bring their bathing suits, there will be free access to outdoor spas on the terrace. Nothing better than listening to a band, outside, in a spa, with a drink in hand.

Mont Sainte Anne spa

It happens every year for the Easter weekend: Easter bunnies will distribute chocolate eggs all over the mountain to the little ones (and the grown-ups too). On Sunday, the punk-rock band Christopher Bard will give a show on the outdoor stage.

I love snow Mont Sainte Anne

Every weekend, starting April 1, Mont-Sainte-Anne Spring Madness brings animation for the family, inflatable playground, campfires, outdoor BBQs and spas, live shows, sugar shack on the slopes, festive vibe and spring conditions.
