Le Massif

Up on the northern shore of the St. Lawrence River, about an hour north of Quebec, sits the "mountain by the sea", Le Massif, where trails seem to drop directly into the tidal St. Lawrence river. And it's quite a drop: 2,526 feet, thanks to a base elevation of 118 feet. It's also a steep drop: almost 60% of the terrain is rated difficult or very difficult. The mountain consequently attracts serious racers, shredders, and free-heelers, who are also attracted by its wild beauty, relatively low level of development, and 260 inches of natural snow a year.
