Skiing away from it all (Auberge aux Quatre Matins)

On the slopes and trails at Val Saint-côme ski resort, a charming forest inn combines total relaxation with winter magic.

It doesn’t take long to see why the inn took home a Québec tourism Award in 2012. no wonder many a visitor says dreamily, “i’m here to stay!”

In addition to the inn’s pretty rooms and lofts, guests also enjoy a spa, a massage therapy centre, and nordic baths that can perk up any self-respecting sports enthusiast. using the inn as a starting point, skiers and boarders will be tearing down the snowy slopes at Val saint-côme in no time. this is also home to the Québec freestyle skiing centre, which sees skiers from the world over pass through its doors every year. And snowmobilers eager to get up close and personal with lanaudière during their stay will be on the trails faster than you can say vroom! snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and dogsledding are other great ways to discover immaculate trails of white.

Worked up an appetite? back in the kitchen, a real artist is hard at work, busy preparing works of art that are a feast for the eyes as much as the taste buds. bison and Québec lamb star on a menu that explores every facet of a rich terroir. And breakfasts are equally gourmet affairs, just to make sure you start the day on a high note!

“The inn supplies guests with a broad range of activities.”
