Quebec's premier ski mountain, Mont Saint-Sauveur is located about 50 kilometers (34.18 miles) Northwest of Laval. It was around 1930s that the place got its first ski lift, after which its prowess for being a fantastic ski destination kept increasing. But it was only in the early 1970s, that Mont Saint-Sauveur became a ski resort. Home to both, day and night ski sessions, the resort operates for more than 160 days every year, making for the state's longest ski season. Several activities and events are organized in winters, and during summers, the place functions as a theme park.
