    Mont Saint Anne Quebec?

    What is the best place to stay in bike park?

    Is campground near bike park?

    Do hotels accept bikes?
    Are the trails more technical than blue mountain?

    In brief:
    There are lot's of places to stay.... motels, chalets, camping ... just google. Depends on your price and what you need.
    Most places will allow bikes ... but you have to ask (we had no issue with bringing our bikes in our room) We've been to MSA many times.
    The trails (DH and enduro) are longer and require intermediate to advanced skills depending on the trail.

    Time is running out though if you plan to go ... plan it soon... closing weekend is Thanksgiving

    That's nice. You should have no problem with the 8 to 9 hour drive.

    Do you have any experience at Saint Anne?
    Can you provide me with tips?
    Hotels seem really expensive. I prefer to stay at campground.

    Trails run through the campground and back to the resort. I would think a trained Starfleet Officer would have better google fu.

    Not many tips, other than go, ride, have fun. Definitely worth the trip. Going during the World Cup is always a great experience (but book the campground well in advance). Next year they are hosting the World MTB championship, so that will be a rocking good time.

    If you have a week or more, combine it with other destinations around Quebec city, like Vallee Bras du Nord and Les Sentiers du Moulin.

    Depending on time of year, be prepared for rain (watch videos on MSA WC and you'll see)

    Bring spare brake pads and body armor. Fresh tires are best. Not a good idea to have clapped out tires.
    The more suspension the better: an enduro bike is best to allow you to ride the greatest variety of trails (although a DH bike is more fun on the DH trails)

    Your bike will take alot of abuse and any weak points will be obvious. All depends on how hard you want to ride.

    A good alternative is Vallee Bras du Nord (St Raymond and Shannahan) Same drive distance. I love that spot! More oriented to enduro to cross country

    The mountain is part of the Laurentian mountain chain and has a summit elevation of 800 m (2,625 ft) above sea level with a vertical drop of 625 m (2,051 ft).

    There are 71 trails covering 71 km (44 mi) on three different sides of the mountain, and 19 trails covering 15.2 km (9.4 mi)

    The "hill" is big enough to be a stop on the world cup downhill series. If its big enough for them you may enjoy it.
