Summary:
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!

Summary:
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.

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
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.

Summary:
My parents had a chalet at the base of the resort for several years and as a result have ridden the trails frequently over the years. Given the potential that this site has for mountainbiking, one cannot be more disappointed with the trail network. Regarding the X Country trails, the percentage of single track is miniscule as most of the network overlaps the Ski trails. In southern Ontario where I live the mountain biking is far more impressive despite more limited space and a less rugged topography than Monte Ste Anne. One can only dream of the potential of Monte Ste. Anne, if only the park authorities would take the effort to construct a trail network that accomodates the X Country MTB rider. The down hill trails are better, but I much prefer the technical and endurance challenges of cross country riding, something these trails don't provide.

Recommended Route:
I've ridden all the trails but its been a while.
