Alpine Skiing in Gatineau Park

Treat yourself to more than the slopes by booking an overnight stay with us at The Wakefield Mill Hotel.
The Wakefield Mill is ideally suited for you to enjoy the perfect alpine ski adventure. Our hotel is less than an hour from five different alpine ski hills.

Only two kilometres away, the Vorlage Ski Area is walking distance from your hotel room. Located in the picturesque village of Wakefield, Vorlage offers a family-friendly atmosphere and more low-key alpine. The ski hill leverages high-powered chairlifts so that you can avoid large crowds and long waits. Vorlage’s state-of-the-art snow equipment ensures that skiers can always enjoy high-quality skiing. You can also experience Wakefield village and the Vorlage Ski Area under the stars, as the ski hill offers night skiing on thirteen of their well-groomed slopes.
Ten minutes away, Edleweiss is the second highest mountain near the Wakefield hotel. This ski hill is largely composed of beginner and intermediate alpine runs. There may be one or two difficult downhill options, but you will definitely find your greatest challenge in Edleweiss’ snow park. This park is built for highflying skiers and snowboarders who love to twirl, flip and attempt daring tricks. If you and your spouse are looking to toss the alpine skis and let loose, be sure to visit Edleweiss’ snow tubing site.
