Mont Saint Anne is definitely a place to go if you are a downhiller! I ride Xc and the trails looked good on the trail map (I was visiting family in the area anyway) but the Xc trail system is a myth, it's well documented on the map, but thats the only place! trails are poorly marked and inconsistent! trying to follow the trail markers for L'enduro Sud is almost impossible!! there are places on the trail where it's marked as part of 3 other trails, you follow it, to the next set of markers and then it's no longer on the list of marks to follow!!

Having said that, once you forget about trying to actually follow a trail, and just "bushwack" the trails it gets alot more fun!!!

if you go during the summer, ther prices for local accomodation are fantastic!!

giving it a 2 just because of how disorganized the trails are!

Don't come here unless you are a DH rider. The XC trail system (if it can be called that) is not well built or thought out. Most sections are simply ski area maintenance roads -- gravel road or gravel double track. Many sections simply follow natural water runoff lines, leading to increased erosion. They could use some IMBA trail planning courses for sure. The area has great potential, but remains untapped. With the amount (and quality) of the terrain they have, they could build a top destination for XC riding, similar to Kingdom Trails. They certainly have the money to do it, with the outrageous fees. Too bad they don't have any vision.

Wow. This was some technical stuff! Bring your A game because you are going to NEED it! Some of the double black diamond MTB trails are the hardest I have ever ridden and not for nothing but that's pretty good considering my 5+ years of MTB'ing. Some parts definitely require walking unless you show up with some serious DH travel in the front and rear of your rig. There is a sweet 4 cross (kind of like dual slalom) course with some nice jumps and sick berms. A very cool but not so channeling "bridges" (north shore) course setup as well. Also, for those who complain about poor cross country trails you probably shouldn't be riding at a mountain were most riders take the gondola up. All in all, VERY sweet with some VERY tough sections. If you spend some time looking around you can even find some sick man made obstacles on some of the double black diamond trails.

Down. Head for "les telecabines" (gondola's) and pick your route. Take the double and single black diamond trails if you dare and if you feel you have good MTB experince.

Ste-Anne has deteriorated a lot in the past 2 years. Since they allowed logging in that area, most of the trails have been destroyed. La Norot, which used to be a premium singletrac has been damaged by logging machinery. Only the Enduro Sud, la Boucle St-Nicolas and Le chemin du ruisseau rouge have not been damaged too much. Ste-Anne used to be a 5, now it is a 1.

All the riding, climbing, technical down hills you want. A lot of the best trails are being cleared for cross country ski training (Canada's national Training Center). As you start on a highly technical single track, you drop into dozier wide runs. Maybe they will clear more single track for biking to keep people coming back. A lot of things to do in the area. 30 minute to Quebec City and the people are actually friendly.

the gondola will take you to 800 meter altitude and 625
of 'denivelation' the view on the st-lawrence is beautiful. From the top there is many choices between xc and downhill. None are very easy but a beginner can still make it by walking 2-3 times for a few meters. There are some extremely difficult downhill trails so steap and narrow you will freak. Yes some trails are damaged but most have been repared last automn and its still getting better. Personnaly I like damaged trails if I didnt, I would road bike! So the place is not as bad as some say and it has got nice again. Gondola is a must, 18$ for the whole day. This year Mont-S-A is the only official training center for the olympic and the world cup final is set at the end of august so dont worry, the place is by far the best. You can try la Coupe du Monde wich is the downhill track and compare yourself with the best: 7 min 40 seconds is about the best that I've seen last year at the world cup. But expect between 10 and 15 depending on your level and also expect to walk a bit at first unless your a pro downhiller. On Xc, there is everything you need and enough km to get lost many times.
