Overview 

Highest resort east of the Rockies, Le Massif is renowned for his really nice panorama, overviewing St-Lawrence River. Also known for the quality of the slopes, some of the nicest advanced terrain, with nices bumps terrain, glades.

The place is also known for their crazy après-skis, and some of the biggest party.

Location

Pros

A rare diamond in snow quality, with some of the biggest snow falling. Really nice view. Professional and friendly staff. Not crowded by weekdays. Greatest vertical drop of any Canadian resort east of the rockies. The cafetaria is only offering healthy meals -- no fried foods. Snowing nearly every days!

Cons

A bit isolated, pretty tough to access when it's snowing. No accomodations on-site, but coming soon! Crazy by weekends
