    Hôtel de Glace: celebrating winter for 15 years!
  • "Au 1884" reopens the historic toboggan slide and celebrates the return of a rink This Saturday December 20th from 11am to 4pm, Au 1884 invites the population of Quebec and visitors to come and celebrate winter during the first Great Winter Fest to be held on Dufferin Terrace!  The program for the day features the official reopening of the famous historic slide and the return of a skating rink right next to iconic Château Frontenac, in addition to many more activities for everyone. For this special occasion, the National Historic Site Forts-et-Châteaux Saint-Louis, usually closed in winter, will be open for visitors to get a taste of history underneath the Dufferin Terrace. Many more fun activities will also be offered on site: take on the Coureur des bois challenge, sit by the fire to listen to folkloric tales & legends presented by a historical figure, go on a Christmas walking tour with an authentic character of local history, sample maple toffee on the snow or ice cider from a local producer, get hands on and decorate traditional gingerbread, and more! A pass including a toboggan slide, a hot chocolate and the admission to the National Historic Site will be sold at 5$ per adult and 3$ per child from 6 to 16 y.o. Prizes will be drawn at the end of the day among all that will have bought a pass."This event aims at bringing back the Dufferin Terrace and the toboggan slide to its glory days, and to celebrate winter in the heart of Old Quebec” say the owners of Au 1884, Marc Duchesne and Marie-Elsa Proulx. With this in mind, the promoters of the event believe that the return of a skating rink offering stunning views on the river, thanks to the Fairmont Château Frontenac, will quickly become very popular and that will significantly contribute to the wide array of winter activities already offered in this beautiful city. They also invite visitors to come in and warm up while enjoying hot chocolate and other local flavors directly from the producers and artisans from the region of Quebec. Information: www.au1884.ca

FIS is keen to try again in 2015, this time for an official World Cup, with a first stop in Istanbul on December 20, 2014. All of which means that boarders of both sexes will be wowing the crowds at Îlot Fleurie on February 20.At a glanceFriday, February 20FIS Big Air World Cup presented by Vidéotron Mobile (Îlot Fleurie, Québec City)Saturday, February 21FIS Slopestyle World Cup (Stoneham)Sunday, February 22FIS Half-Pipe World Cup presented by Mazda (Stoneham)The sport at its finestBoarders will take Îlot Fleurie in Québec City and Stoneham Mountain Resort by storm for the FIS Big Air World Cup presented by Vidéotron Mobile, the FIS Slopestyle World Cup, and the FIS Half-Pipe World Cup presented by Mazda.

    Snowboard Jamboree ready for its 2015 edition, February 19 to 22
  • The Quebec City and Charlevoix tourist regions have risen to the top of the list of ski destinations by joining forces with numerous hotels to offer the brand new St. Lawrence Summits multi-peak ticket. This enterprising concept provides an attractive ski option by combining the strengths of two major players in the field of snow sports, the Massif de Charlevoix and the Mont-Sainte-Anne – Stoneham tandem. The offer is simple! Starting this winter, the multi-peak ticket will enable skiers from Quebec, Ontario, the Northeastern United States and anywhere else in the world to switch from one resort to another as they please. With a single ticket, purchased through a participating hotel in the Quebec City, Stoneham or Charlevoix region, skiers are free to wait until the morning itself to decide whether they’ll spend the day at the Massif de Charlevoix, Mont-Sainte-Anne or Stoneham Mountain Resort. The St. Lawrence Summits solution will appeal to both winter sports enthusiasts who hit the slopes every winter, adventurers fuelled by new discoveries and worldly customers looking for comfort, quality and the best snow conditions. A STRATEGIC ALLIANCE! “It isn’t just the union of two fabulous tourist areas that together form a ski destination that is unique in North America and located close to a UNESCO world heritage city, it’s also a commercial networking between competing businesses, both ski resorts and hotels, who have teamed up for this stimulating economic project,” points out Office du tourisme de Québec director Mr. André Roy. “This new product will allow us to better position ourselves in a context where North American competition in the skiing sector is fierce. We can now offer a truly world-class multi-activity winter destination, where skiing is the flagship product,” adds Mr. Daniel Guay, owner of Hébergement Charlevoix and member of the Tourisme Charlevoix board of directors. In the ski resort owners’ view, the idea of joining forces is truly inspirational. “Our primary objective is to give skiers more flexibility to help boost tourist traffic in our regions. We’re convinced that all partners will benefit from the project,” asserts Mr. Daniel Rochon, General Manager and Vice President of both Mont-Sainte-Anne and Stoneham Mountain Resort. “The team at Massif de Charlevoix is delighted with this association, which bears witness to the willingness of the partners to work together to provide a comprehensive and unique ski destination while helping to promote both the Charlevoix and Quebec City regions. Our resorts offer visitors exceptional ski conditions and breathtaking landscapes, making St. Lawrence Summits a true must,” says Mr. Frederic Sujobert, Mountain General Manager at Massif de Charlevoix. PROFITABLE OPTIONS The St. Lawrence Summits offer is expected to provide an average discount of 30%, both on accommodation and lift tickets. Skiers using the multi-peak ticket will be able to take advantage of five different options all season long. For example: • December: 50% off the 2nd night of accommodation and 2nd day on the mountain. • January: free 3rd night of accommodation and free 3rd day on the mountain. • February: a surprise package added to the January special offer. • March: children aged 17 and under ski for free (except during Spring Break) No effort has been spared to enhance the overall experience. Skiers using this new purchasing option will benefit from quick and easy access to the slopes thanks to web-based technology enabling them to avoid ticket office line-ups at all three resorts. Skiers simply head to the ticket window bearing the St. Lawrence Summits logo on the morning itself to pick up their lift ticket and will therefore by able to arrive more quickly on the slopes. “With St. Lawrence Summits, to be competitive, we needed to embrace the global trend based on the idea of a multi-activity experience sought by the clientele. It is founded on the advanced technological approach that comes with our offer,” asserts Mr. Benoît Renaud, president of Oasis Communication Marketing, an agency specializing in tourism, skiing and strategic alliances currently in charge of developing the St. Lawrence Summits strategy. It should also be noted that the SKI BUS will provide a morning and evening shuttle service seven days a week between hotels in Quebec and Sainte-Foy and the Massif de Charlevoix and Mont-Sainte-Anne, from 20 December 2014 to 29 March 2015. ABOUT ST. LAWRENCE SUMMITS The St. Lawrence Summits initiative naturally brings together major partners from the Charlevoix and Quebec City regions seeking a development model based on the multifaceted experience. A joint initial investment of around $600,000 will go towards carrying out a major promotional campaign and promoting the product through the advertising leverage of partners such as the Office de tourisme de Québec, Tourisme Charlevoix, affiliated Quebec ATRs and Tourisme Québec. The campaign conducted by Oasis Communication Marketing will feature numerous advertisements in Quebec, Ontario and the United States and will be promoted during the Toronto Snow Show 2014 taking place from October 16 to 19, as well as at the Boston and Ottawa shows, providing unique opportunities to showcase Quebec.

  • Laval University`s Montmorency Forest doesn’t do things like everyone else! This year, skiing begins on October 31. Our technical team prepared more than 6,000 cubic feet of artificial snow and stored it under tons of wood chips throughout the summer. Our artificial snow reserve, under production since February 2014, has been monitored and cared for daily by our maintenance team. Result: we will be able to cover a minimum 2-kilometre ski run starting October 31! To maximize the quality of the snow and permit skiing until the arrival of natural snow, snow cannons will also contribute. Exclusive to Northeastern North America!Every year, numerous skiers from American and Canadian university programs and ski clubs of all calibre capitalize on the Montmorency Forest’s facilities to prepare for their season. Notably, the Russian National Team trained at the Forest in 2012 for the Quebec Sprint competition. As well, the Quebec Masters Cross-Country Ski Association will hold its annual training camp for the 23rd consecutive year. In order to take full advantage of the resources, our lodge can welcome 150 visitors and provides fireplace-equipped lounges, an auditorium, classrooms and an affordable cafeteria.Since winter will soon be knocking at our door, reserve now for your colleagues and yourself: info@fm.ulaval.ca or 418-656-2034.Would you like to know more?
