Canadian Mount Royal Ski Poster
Mount Royal is a mountain on the Island of Montreal, immediately north of downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to which city it gave its name. Contrary to popular belief, Mount Royal is not an extinct volcano, however, it is the result of magma flows. It is composed of gabbro and is part of the Monteregian mountain chain situated between the Laurentians and the Appalachians. The mountain consists of three peaks: Montreal, 223 metres; Outremont, 211 metres; and Westmount, 201 metres. At this height, it might be otherwise considered a very tall hill, but it has always been called a mountain.
