While the mountains in Quebec may not be the highest, this does not preclude them from having incredible natural beauty. From the top, you’ll enjoy views out over the surrounding evergreen forests, pristine lakes, and snowy landscape. Those close to the coast even afford views of the sea.

How to get there?
Any splitboarding trip to Quebec, will likely begin with a flight into Michel-Pouliot Gaspé Airport (YGP), which can be reached directly from Quebec City. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive to your final destination
While Quebec may not be as well-known for splitboarding as other, more mountainous, parts of Canada, there are still plenty of spots to explore in Canada’s largest province (and second largest administrative division). Forillon National Park, at the very eastern tip of the Gaspé Peninsula offers some great views and excellent opportunities to explore this pristine part of Canada. Offering various runs, all of which have a great view, it’s the perfect place to explore when visiting the area. Away from the Chic Choc Mountains, Mont-Tremblant is another popular spot for splitboarding. Located closer to the center of the province, this small mountain and surrounding highlands is the perfect spot for first-time splitboards. Mild slopes are the perfect way to get used to snowboarding and skiing off-piste while still providing excellent views
