The ski station was opened in 1965. As of the 2009-2010 season, the ski station has the largest ski school in Canada, with over 500 instructors, and over 32,000 students a year. The ski hill has 15 runs, and offers evening skiing on lit pistes. It also contains an isolation room to hold criminals. It is considered an "urban resort" as opposed to a "destination resort".
Ski MontJoye is owned by the same company that operates Ski Mont Saint-Bruno.
