Pros: View, terrain variety, atmosphere, modern equipment, excellent food
Cons: Further from Québec than Mont-Ste-Anne, sometimes windy and icy (hey, we're east !), sometimes crowded on beginner/intermediate slopes
This is my home mountain (I live in Québec City), and it's the best spot around. Forget Mont-Ste-Anne (too crowded, icy, out-of-control skiers) and drive a bit further.
You will be stunned by the beautiful view (you arrive on top of the slopes, and have beautiful view on the St-Laurent river and Appalchans in the south).
The mountain in quite isolated and there is not a lot of accomodation, which for us locals is a good thing as this 'controls the crowds'.
Terrain has a lot of variation: groomed, tree, bosses. Advanced skiers are best on the west side: (double) black diamonds are never crowded, but loose the sun a bit earlier in the day.
Contrary to Mont-Ste-Anne and sister Stoneham, Le Massif has got modern infrastructure and an excellent restaurant.
I was really shocked no to find Le Massif in last season's 'Ski' resort guide (it probably isn't owned by a company linked to the magazine...).
If you come to Québec to ski, this is THE mountain to visit.
