Families have been asking about the details of our FS Mont-Ste-Anne trip and so Emily Silver has put together the information to share with everyone. Thanks to Emily for her continuing work on this trip. We can’t wait for it! Information is below….
Ski w/ Ford Sayre families at Mont-Ste-Anne near Quebec City Dec 27th-31st: a tradition in its 3rd year!
THE SKIING EXPERIENCE:
This will be our third winter continuing the Mont-Ste-Anne tradition, and we have seen that it gives the kids a nice early-season foundation and families a whole lot of fun! While it’s true that if we have good snow in the upper Valley in Dec, we can ski at home, you tend not to ski all day long for 4.5 days in a row when you’re home, and certainly not with so many friends!
At Mont-Ste-Anne, each day we will have gathering times for folks who want to ski in Ford Sayre groups, led in an informal manner by parents/coaches. This is completely optional, but as many of us parents have noticed, kids seem to ski w/ fewer complaints when they ski in groups! There are 5 warming huts on the trail system so it is extra fun to ski in packs and take snack breaks together.
It can be cold, but the extensive trail system cannot be beat!
Quebec City is only 30 minutes away.

MONT-STE-ANNE SKI AREA & proximity to our hotel:
There is no lodging right at the XC trails except for one big lodge that many people would need to co-rent. Chateau Mte-Ste-Anne is at the alpine mountain, and you can ski to the XC lodge from there, but it’s 7K, so what most families do is drive to the XC lodge in the morning w/ lunches packed, and then individual family members ski back to the hotel at the end of the day if they so desire.
