Only minutes away from the town of Magog, and set inside Mont Orford national park, you’ll find the tallest ski resort in this region.
Standing 589 metres tall, Mont Orford’s 61 trails are spread across four hills. To access Orford’s double black diamonds and glades, hop on the hybrid gondola and reach the summit in no time.
Beginner riders will find easier terrain spread across Mont Giroux and Mont Alfred-Desrochers. Orford is also home to two terrain parks—the main park is located just off the Magog trail, while the junior park is easily accessible from the magic carpet. Those looking to try something new can give skinning a try, however you’ll need to purchase an Uphill Travel Pass. Additional winter activities at Mont Orford include snowshoeing, fat biking and cross-country skiing.
In the summer season, set out along the 10 km stretch of the TransQuébec cycling trail. In addition to 80 km of hiking trails in the park, there’s rock climbing, golfing, standup paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking available. For the ultimate challenge, head to Mont Orford in October for the 10th annual XTrail—a challenging 23 km trail race.
