About Stoneham Mountain Resort
Stoneham Mountain Resort is nestled in a valley to the north of historic Quebec City. During the winter months, Stoneham is rated among the top three ski resorts in Quebec. With an average annual snowfall of 350 cm, 32 runs over four mountains to choose from, and a 420 metre vertical drop, incredible skiing and snowboarding is had by all.
In the summer, Stoneham features a host of outdoor activities for couples and families alike: outdoor heated pools, tennis courts, archery, volleyball, indoor/outdoor climbing walls, and mini golf. A trip just outside the Resort grounds opens up the possibility to raft, mountain bike, hike, golf, fish, and explore the famous Jacques-Cartier Provincial Park.
The Resort also offers an array of accommodation options for those who wish to make a vacation here. Hotel Stoneham features 120 fully functional studio and condo rooms at very competitive rates. We hope you will take advantage of Stoneham's special room offer to Raid the North competitors before and after the race!
