Skiing in Mont Orford
The mountain offers something of interest for every level of skier. There is good terrain for
beginners with a magic carpet and another surface lift in the lower part of the slopes. There is some easy terrain on Mt Orford and on Mt Alfred Desrochers.
For intermediates there are nice runs on every side of the resort. A little trick is to ski on the east Giroux side, during the morning and to move on the main mountain after a few runs on Slalom or Sherbrooke.
Advanced skiers also have great trails, such as the steep Maxi, Magnum and Sherbrooke.
Less well known is the incredible extreme terrain on the upper part of Mt Orford and between the two sides of Mt Giroux. Those two zones feature some of the best terrain in Eastern North America with wild glades, classic New England trails and endless skiable lines.
