Mont Boisjoli is a hill that rises to approximately 350 metres (1,150 ft) in Hatley, Quebec, Canada.
The hill has officially carried the name "Mont Boisjoli" since 1983. In the 1940s, a 150 acres (61 ha) skiing station called Ski Montjoye opened on the hill, and in the 1970s a chalet was constructed to accommodate visitors and events. Eventually, the ski station closed.
Hatley Group, its current owner, purchased the property from the City of Sherbrooke for CA $526,500 in 2009.
The hill is open year-round, and hikers may use its trails for free. In the winter, visitors may slide down the mountain using inner tubes or mini-tubes for a fee. According to the Hatley Group website, there are plans to install infrastructure for tri-ski sleds, mini luge, river tubing, and to extend the hiking trails in the park.
