April 12: The Mont-Sainte-Anne “Cyclo-puces” allows Mont-Sainte-Anne guests to buy and sell used bikes on site to get ready for the season ahead.

April 19 to 21: The mountain celebrates Easter with an egg hunt and the Easter Bunny.

Throughout Spring Madness, Mont-Sainte-Anne’s mountainside maple sugar shack will provide sweet treats, and outdoor spas and blow-up castles will decorate the base area as the smell of BBQ wafts through the air.
