Thanks for the insight Sheena, I will do a google search for Val de Neiges.

Auberge La Camarine has an upscale restaurant, but actual motel part is pretty modest, but with a touch of style. It is about 30 mins from Le Massif. There are a bunch of mom & pop/b&b places to stay in the town of Baie St. Paul about 15 mins beyond Le Massif if you want to stay closer to it rather than MSA. Reflecting on your situation, you may want more budget accommodations. Have you googled the term Hostel for all the areas you plan to visit? There have to be some around Quebec City??
PS: that is one heck of a solo ski road trip you are planning. There is cheap lodging in Gorham, NH, about halfway between Sugarbush and Sunday River (and real close to Wildcat). I think I would have picked a few less places to visit and stayed two days at some, but you'll get to see a lot of geography, hopefully you'll get safe road travel conditions and have a good running vehicle. Looking forward to a report when you're done.
JamesJ, thanks for the help. I modified it a bit after reading a bit more about Sunday River and from listening to helpful bears like yourself. I am going to cut SR out and stay two days at Sugarloaf instead.
I'm definitely a budget minded person but more the type of cheap motel with private room then uber-cheap hostel. So I will look into the hotel that you mentioned. I may have convinced a buddy to come along so my lodging expenses may have just been cut in half.
Ah good old Gorham, I know it well. I have stayed there 4 different times and am a fan of the Mt. Madison hotel and the Colonial Fort Inn. CFI, gets some terrible reviews but everytime I've stayed there it has been clean and certainly sufficed. With cutting SR out, I don't think I will be heading through there anymore. Although I may make a trip up to there later this winter.
Thanks again for the advice and I will definitely be taking some pictures and posting a TR when I get back.
