Ski w/ Ford Sayre families at Mont-Ste-Anne near Quebec City Dec 26th-30th: a tradition in its 4th year! Reserve rooms by September 26th.
THE SKIING EXPERIENCE:
This will be the 4th winter that Ford Sayre families have been gathering at Mont-Ste-Anne over the winter holiday break. What started out with just a few families has grown to nearly 20 Ford Sayre families, and families that go have had a whole lot of fun with some early-season skiing!!
The Mont-Ste-Anne trip has historically included more middle-school and high-school aged Ford Sayre skiers and their families. However, this is a great opportunity for younger families to get to know other Ford Sayre families, and enjoy skiing with friends on a beautiful trail system.
HOW IT WORKS:
Each day we will have gathering times for folks who want to ski in Ford Sayre groups, led by parents/coaches. This is completely optional, but as many parents have noticed, kids seem to ski with fewer complaints when in kid 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, and 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. Chåteau 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.
FOOD: Here is what most families do, making use of the grocery stores that are only a few minutes away from the hotel.
Breakfast in hotel rooms. (Many enjoy the bakery in the hotel lobby.)
Lunch in ski lodge: families pack lunches and eat among friends. Food is also sold at the lodge.
Dinner plans vary: families go out to restaurants; they cook in hotel rooms; and they bring food down to the conference room we have reserved in order to eat among other families. (We have reserved that conference room again this year for each night.)
