Yep, there certainly is.  There's this Quebec resort, which BTW has "zero" 
snowmaking:

http://www.valinouet.qc.ca/

17 trails doesn't sound too bad, with 165cm to date this season.

Interestingly, the other usually snowy resorts on the NFC circuit (Mont 
Edouard, Massif Du Sud) haven't picked up a lot of snow yet.

As well Tremblant seems to be doing fine by making a ton of fake snow and 
opening 38 trails:
