Cerise sur le sundae

A unique biking loop

The new Cerise sur le Sundae biking loop is a ride for everyone and definitely a trail to explore with family. You can practice your inclined turns while admiring the breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River, and it will lead you to a stop at the Buton.

The departure is from the summit, near the parking lot, allowing for ease before beginning a complete descent of the mountain. This is a beginner-level trail.



Le Buton, Le Massif's signature lookout

This iconic and historical promontory of Le Massif de Charlevoix is a 30-meter enhancement, completed in September 2001 with the fill material from the snowmaking basin. This development aimed to create an Olympic standard track for downhill alpine skiing races.

Today, this lookout offers an impressive and unique 360-degree panoramic view of the Charlevoix region.
