Gaspé Peninsula, 1-day Guided backcountry skiing in Quebec | Canada

Join a certified mountain guide and discover a backcountry skiing paradise: the Chic Choc mountains, in the Gaspé Peninsula, in eastern Quebec.



1+ Days

Jan - Apr




* Discover the Chic-Choc mountains, a hidden gem for authentic backcountry skiing

* Experience an unforgettable skiing experience on amazing powder

* Enjoy the best runs in total safety along a local experienced guide


If you are looking for a feeling of complete freedom and the grandeur of breathtaking winter landscapes, we have what you are looking for! Join us for 1 or more days and enjoy an authentic backcountry skiing experience in the Chic Choc mountains, in the centre of the Gaspé Peninsula, in eastern Quebec.

Located in the Gaspesie National Park, the Chic Choc mountain range is a true backcountry skiing paradise, offering breathtaking views and getting an average snowfall of 7 metres of snow on the summits every winter.

Mont Jacques Cartier (1268m)  is the highest peak of the range, but there are actually 25 other mountains over 1000 m in this area. Most of the peaks are actually wide open plateaus, of similar elevation.

The Chic Choc Mountains have remained a fairly well-kept secret, therefore you will be skiing with few people in the mountains. There are so many vast areas and spectacular spots to explore in these off-the-beaten-path location!

We can take you to Murdochville, Mount Lyall, Vallieres-De-Saint-Real,  Mines Madelaine, Champs de Mars, Blacktooth Bowl, or St Albert, just to name some of the best routes and tours!

January to March is the best time of the year to fully enjoy the spectacular Chic-Chocs’ powder,  with excellent touring to be had throughout the mountains, on a good year.  March and April are great for exploring areas requiring a longer approach, because days are longer, there is lower risk of avalanches and more stable snow.

However, even if you come at a time when there is hard-packed snow, the unique features of the Chic-Chocs and the different orientation of the slopes allow you to always find variety.

Don’t hesitate to send us a request if you want to enjoy an unforgettable backcountry skiing experience! Book your trip and start planning your next amazing winter adventure in Quebec!

You can also enjoy ski touring in Canada.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!



Can not review - guide cancelled but the trip was not to Perce Rock if we had gone - sadly.. tour was was what was advertised and destination was not where planned Ultimately the full day paddle was canceled by the guide company Effort was there and communication was good! Just booked what I wanted and was not what the guide could offer …
