As the link between the Atlantic provinces and the mainland, New Brunswick is a road tripper’s haven. It’s divided into five scenic drives: the Fundy Coastal Drive, the Acadian Coastal Drive, River Valley Scenic Drive, the Miramichi River Route and the Appalachian Range Route. Crabbe Mountain, just an hour from New Brunswick’s capital, Fredericton, is a great road trip destination. As the Atlantic’s only bilingual province, Crabbe is the place to visit if you’re looking to brush up on your French.
Winters at Crabbe Mountain have it all. Whether it’s alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, or simply taking in a little music at the Thirsty Boot Après Ski Series, you’ll find yourself entertained. New Brunswick’s highest vertical at 260 metres, Crabbe offers a mix of steep, groomed and gladed runs. There are two impressive terrain parks, providing all the fixings to becoming your most extreme self. Crabbe is also home to some fabulous snow shoeing and snowmobiling terrain.
In the summer months, Crabbe Mountain closes its doors. But, you’ll still find both locals and tourists paddling in the St John River, hiking through 88 km of nearby trails, playing golf at the Kingswood, or taking advantage of the bike rentals and going for a little two-wheel adventure.
