Serving skiers since 1965, Owl's Head Resort is one of the great family-run ski and golf destinations in Quebec's Eastern Townships. Cold and snow have been blanketing the resort since December and it is open with powder and packed- powder conditions.

On the western shore of beautiful Lake Mephremagog, some say Owl's Head takes its name from the contour of the mountain peaks which also give the resort its famous vistas; but others insist the mountain was named after the greatest chief of the Abenaki Indians who hunted and fished in the area. Some like to call it the Lake Tahoe of Eastern Canada.

The current Owl's Head Development Corporation works in the tradition and vision of founder Fred Korman and continues to grow each year. Owl's Head is a four- season resort with some of the best skiing in Quebec, growing from its first season with two chairlifts and a T-bar on six trails (laid out by Olympic skier Bob Richardson with the help of family and friends), to nine lifts and 50 trails today.

The focus remains on the family at this authentic resort in Estrie, Québec, with ski- in/ski-out lodging, dining, boutique, cafeteria and bar at the Owl's Head Inn.

Skiers and riders here enjoy the fourth longest vertical drop in Quebec, with 130 acres of skiable terrain (noteworthy for its beautiful Eastern glade skiing), 50 trails, a terrain park. Lilly's Leap trail is oft considered one of the most scenic ski trails in all of Eastern Canada and the U.S.
