Just 20 minutes from Quebec City
Canada's largest night-skiing network
Snowboard World Cup venue
As you ski across the four mountain faces that make up Stoneham, you won’t believe that you’re just 20 minutes away from downtown Quebec. But that’s what makes this medium-sized resort so charming. On a school ski trip to Stoneham, you’ll combine skiing with the fascinating experience of discovering Quebecois culture in one of the province’s most exciting cities. Stoneham has a great reputation for the quality of both its skiing and snowboarding, and has hosted several international competitions, including the Snowboard FIS World Cup Finals, which have been held here every year since 2007.
Interested in this resort?
Suitable for all abilities, Stoneham is a great resort for learners, thanks to the excellent ski school here. You’ll find 42 trails across three mountains, with plenty of terrain to suit all abilities and type of skier/snowboarder. Plus, there’s three brilliant terrain parks and an Olympic half-pipe, which is a whopping 22 feet high! For something a little more sedate, but by no means less memorable, make sure you enjoy a spot of night-skiing – with 19 trails Stoneham is Canada’s largest night-skiing network. You won’t need to worry about snow cover either on your school ski holiday to Stoneham – if Mother Nature refuses to play ball, the resort’s snow-making facilities cover 86% of the skiable terrain.
Brilliant resort for beginners.

Very much the symbol of Quebec, this beautiful château almost looks as though it has been lifted straight out of a fairy tale. It's been guarding the city from its outpost on a hill overlooking the city since the 19th century. It is now home to the most photographed hotel in the world.
This fantastic indoor amusement park boasts 16 rides and attractions. There's also an ice skating rink, mini-golf and an indoor climbing wall.
