Description

The highest skiable peak in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, Mont-Édouard offers 32 slopes, one of which is more than 3 km long, with a vertical drop of 450 metres. You won't be able to resist the pleasure of hurtling down this mountain, which offers magnificent views of the Saguenay Fjord, not to mention the fact that Mont-Édouard rises at the gateway to the village of L'Anse-Saint-Jean, a member of the Association des plus beaux villages du Québec.
