Edelweiss Valley is a ski resort located in Wakefield, Quebec, approximately 20 minutes north of Ottawa. It is family oriented and consists of mostly beginner and intermediate terrain. There is a snow tubing park that is popular for families and school field trips. Edelweiss Valley was acquired by Mont Saint-Sauveur International in 2000. The ski area was started by 3 partners , Andy Tommy who ran the ski area and 2 other partners Art Tommy and Reg Lefebvre who ran the ski shop Tommy and Lefebvre. The early years brought lots of improvements such as snowmaking and night skiing , they were open 7 days a week from 8 am to 11 PM .
The Mountain manager was a colourful character Dick Gagne Ho worked there for almost 15 years until he retired.
Some famous ski racers came from Edelweiss , Mike Tommy , Mike Gagne, and many others
