Famous for its glades, Mont Sutton is one resort you need to experience firsthand.
With 60 trails and 204 junctions spanning 230 acres of terrain, you can spend an entire day never riding the same run twice.
Since 45 per cent of the mountain is covered in glades, you’ll get a true feel for the natural terrain as some of the trails are purposely not groomed. Sutton’s Family Zone also features The Forest of Wonders—an area complete with stuffed animals, wooden teepees and wide glades, allowing children to become familiar with tree skiing.
Over on the Mohawk trail, you’ll find the terrain park with 15 features ranging from jumps to rails and boxes. Visitors can purchase a lift ticket valid for just the park chair, or the entire mountain. For $10 a day, guests can also buy a ski-touring lift ticket. Sutton has two touring trails—one for beginners and one for experts that’s 3.8 km long.
This summer Plein air Sutton, a local non-profit organization, introduced 25 km of cross-country mountain biking trails at the resort. In addition to the single and dual track trails, there’s a new Scott Bike Park complete with a wooden teeter-totter and over 152 metres of trails. Summer visitors can also camp at the summit of Mont Sutton, or spend the night in the resort’s chalet, which can comfortably sleep 20 guests. In nearby Parc Sutton, there are four peaks and two lakes located along a 52 km hiking trail.
