Mont-Sainte-Anne can be an intimidating place, but it's actually easy to go from top to bottom and all around without risking it all. The Blue Run does just that, with 3 "blue" trails and a gondola run.

First section not bad , the leaves were blown off. But everywhere you can see the effects of the weather and the recent race. Other trail sections were in better shape but covered in leaves. We did have to use care with lots of “baby heads” still over all beautiful,fun and uncrowned.
