Lines stretched from the chairlift to the chalet at Mont-Sainte-Anne in early January. With warm weather and the pandemic-induced suspension of most social activities, skiing and snowboarding are more popular than ever this season.

Once the snow begins to pile up, skiers are eager to hit the slopes, even during a pandemic. Ski resorts throughout Quebec are prepared for a record-breaking season this year. Not even a provincewide curfew has stopped people from strapping on their skis and snowboards.
