The Hill

Mount Pakenham is Ottawa and the Valley's premier family ski, snowboard and tubing area. Getting you up hill are three Quad chairlifts. Beginner skiers and riders have a handle tow and rope tow and a Carpet Lift to access gentler terrain. Parents love the layout that brings every skier and rider down to a central point. Finding your child is easy at Mount Pakenham. Just a short drive from Ottawa; Ottawa and the Valley's Favourite Family Snow Centre.

Besides perfect family terrain, we compliment nature with impeccable nightly grooming and lots of early-season snow making. Mount Pakenham is famous for its great conditions all the time. Don't let a dry driveway deter you from alpine fun. We are famous for our snow all season long.
