For dozens of years the Mount Orford Ski Station - the 4th highest peak in Quebec - has planned and groomed three mountains, that's Orford Mountain, Alfred-Desrochers Mountain and Giroux Mountain, located in the Eastern Townships.
This venue is more than a mere mountain; it is a truly dynamic ski station that reverberates with a rustic environment and distinct atmosphere, in which the drops in altitude have been specially planned to offer unequalled sensations and challenges to both skiers and boarders alike.
Mont Orford, located in the heart of nature and surrounded by a breath taking view in all directions, has what it takes to satisfy every nature lover. : 4 major slopes, more than 60 trails and glided areas. It has about ten mechanical lifts, including a hybrid gondola, wide trails of natural or artificial snow, minutely maintained; a large snow park with limited access; a junior snow park; cabins on the summit of the mountain; a microclimate that favours abundant snow falls; qualified staff at every turn; quality food outlets make Orford the destination "par excellence" for skiers and boarders to come and enjoy the abundance it offers.
