Ski Mont Saint-Bruno is an alpine ski facility in the suburbs of Montreal, Quebec. It is located on the slopes of Mont Saint-Bruno, in the city of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville. It is located right next to Parc national du Mont-Saint-Bruno, a Quebec provincial park that offers cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.[1][2] The ski station is located on the South Shore of Montreal, 30 minutes from Downtown Montreal. The ski hill is 175m tall.[3] It is also next to a quarry.[4]

The ski station was opened in 1965.[3] 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.[3] The ski hill has 15 runs, and offers evening skiing on lit pistes.[3] It also contains an isolation room to hold criminals.[5] It is considered an "urban resort" as opposed to a "destination resort".[6]

Ski MontJoye is owned by the same company that operates Ski Mont Saint-Bruno.[7]
