We skied Owl's Head over the Christmas/New Year break. The views from the top are amazing. The conditions were generally good. I was disappointed that they had a black out on the Grade 4 Ski Canada program for the week which the cashier was slightly snarky about.

Private owned, good ski lessons and condition (you do not have to wait in line !) I recommend this station for the fun , the view and an affordable meal (do not bother to bring your lunch).

4/5 time playing here and always a pleasure. First time walking.....whew, it is a haul trust me. Great greens, conditions and t-boxes. Great deal if you walk add another 20-30 if you ride but suggest riding. Downhills, water, sand, elevation,dog legs....has everything. Great for groups or walk-ons.

On a recent trip to the Eastern Townships, I put my fear of heights to the test by taking a chairlift up to the summit of Owl's Head, during Autumnfest. After reaching the top, we climbed about 50 feet up to the summit. The climb was not easy as there is no man-made path and the rocks and ground were... More

Visited in February 2016 with my sister and her family. This is her family's favorite East Coast ski resort and I definitely see why. The mountain is much taller and has many more trails than any resorts near me, and despite the lack of snow this year, it was still great skiing. The exchange rate made Owl's Head cheaper on...

Beautiful! Short sort of but beautiful. Hard too, mostly uphill. Trails aren't well marked. Get a map. But it's very beautiful especially on the way down.

The staff does not smile on arrival. no smiles at the chairs or at the ticket counter , they have no consideration on helping famillies. The Manager was arrogant in front of customers. The safety rules of this ski resort should be looked over. We will never go back to this ski resort and bring our money else where. The... More

Friendly and affordable ski resort with a very good variety of 52 runs and lifts. Not crowded during the week and excellent for young families.

I have been to Owl's Head four times over a 15 year period. First off: It's BASIC. No frills, no Whistler-type glitzy amenities. But, it is really inexpensive compared to other ski areas in the Townships. There are no lift lineups, no "yikes, I hope I don't get run over/into by another skier" situations. I took my kids (then 9... More
