Owl`s Head Reviews

Family mountain

Pros: No crowds, long runs (by Quebec standards), some good steeps, the view

Cons: Can be icy, too much grooming,

I grew up skiing at Owl's Head. My parents bought a condo there over 20 years ago and I've skied there ever since. Over the years I've grown to love and hate it. Here's the love:- No crowds. Only on the greatest, sunniest, warmest days of winter will you wait in line, and even at that you won't ever wait longer than 10 minutes, and that will only be at peak time in the morning. Usually there's no lineups and on weekdays the slopes are empty.- Flying down the Kamikaze. It's fairly steep, sometimes icy, always groomed, and goes right under the main quad.

Amazing Views, No Lines

Posted

Pros: Amazing Views, No Lines, Cheap Tues/Wed

Cons: Variety

You can have a great day at Owls Head any day that the sun is shining.  Tuesdays and Wednesdays are only $15.  There are some fun runs here.  Not very much off in the trees.  There are many amazing views here that really makes the mountain.  If you get bored you can just leave because you only spent $39-15.  It's a great place for families, and usually never that busy.

Great all-around mountain

Pros: Terrain variety

Cons: Not a ton of slopes

Owl's Head is a great family mountain. It offers very diverse terrain and beatyful panoramic views.There are not a ton of slopes, but if you look hard enough, you'll find that one run that will make your day! Also, the extra 30 minute drive off the highway is most definately worth it as you'll most likely have much shorter lineups at the chairs and more runs in than other other mountains in the area. A well kept secret in the eastern townships!
