Owl's Head, approximately 35 minutes from the resort, offers a beautiful view of Lake Memorphamagog and offers the best value in skiing I have come across in years. The wide, rolling slopes provide the beginner skier with a great opportunity to work on technique while the upper mountain offers the intermediate and advanced skier the challenges they seek. We were able to ski all day for CD$15 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Mont Sutton was the cap to the week. This resort offered many trails through the glades and the upper mountain was a great challenge to the expert skier.
While there were several great restaurants, I would have to mention Patrick at Au Graduvent. The French cuisine was prepared from mostly local ingredients; in fact, many ingredients were raised/grown by Patrick and his family on the adjoining farm. Bring your own wine to make it a very special night. Highly recommended!

Club Vacances is comprised of four or five buildings with several units in each--not a very large resort. Across the street there is a recreation complex with courts, a pool, a bar or lounge of sorts, and a rock climbing room with very old sofas as I recall. I am not sure if it belonged to Club Vacances or if we were just able to use it, but to get there we ended up wading through knee deep snow. Our teenage daughters wanted to try the pool, and we were not pleased to find we had to pay $2 for towels.
Our unit was on the second floor and we had an interior staircase where we could stash our skis and boots. It did not lock, however and we had some unfounded concerns that our equipment would be stolen.
At the front desk there was a book with the various restaurants and their menus.
