Course and elevation gain

The 48K Boralex and 25K KPMG courses are a unique opportunity for skiers to explore the Mont-Sainte-Anne backcountry and discover areas not usually open to the public.

See the course maps and elevation gains for the 48K Boralex, 25K KPMG, 10K Sportful and 1.5K Québecor events.

IMPORTANT : We will do our best to deliver a quality course with the help of our grooming equipment. However, as in most Québec ski stations by the end of March, the spring snow conditions can affect the tracks, as well as the number of participants using them.

Start and finish areas

The meeting point for all participants is the Rang Saint-Julien Lodge at Mont-Sainte-Anne. This is where the start and finish areas are located for all distances.

Parking

Parking is available near the start and finish areas: Rang Saint-Julien Lodge (Chalet du rang Saint-Julien), Mont-Sainte-Anne 300 Rang Saint Julien, Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges (QC) G0A 3R0

Skis can be waxed in the usual wax room at the Rang Saint-Julien Lodge.

Limited storage space will be available onsite.

A snack bar will be set up by the finish line.

Medals will be awarded to the top three men and women based on cumulative ranking.
