Mont-Sainte Anne - July 20, 2019


Recommended Posts

While taking the weekend away from the Eastern Townships, visiting family in the Quebec City area, I decided to visit Mont Sainte Anne with the family and ride the gondola. It was a very humid day with the temps in the low 30's. Partly cloudy skies with a breeze. We arrived mid afternoon around 2:30, and picked up the tickets for the ride up. The parking lot was not busy at all, and the ones who were there were biking. I noticed that at the bottom of the mountain there were a few giraffe guns spraying water to cool things down for the bike riders.fullsizeoutput_ea1.thumb.jpeg.92c8d10c42a6a28be8e7df42d0786bb3.jpeg


There was no wait at the Gondola so we got right on and went to the top. When we got to the top, there was a steady breeze which made the heat more bearable. The views from the summit are amazing! Looking off the South side, you have the St. Lawrence River, and on the North side you have miles and miles of mountains. There is a look out tower that you may climb to get a better view. You have a full 360 degree view from up there.

After exploring around the top for about an hour we headed back down to the base to look around. Stopped at the snack counter for something cool to drink, and a snack for the kids. Checked out the shop for a bit, and then headed back to the house rental nearby where we are staying for the weekend. I have never skied here before so today as warm as it was made for a great scouting adventure for a possible winter visit in the future. 

Here are some other scenes from the visit:
