Cross country skiing for those who cannot wait!

The countdown has started, and since the end of October, the Forêt Montmorency has welcomed its first athletes and ski enthusiasts for the longest cross-country season ahead.

La Forêt Montmorency de l’Université Laval, the largest teaching and research forest in the world, stands out among others with its famous Glisse Boréale; an exclusive attraction in the Northeast of North America!

La Glisse Boréale?

During last winter a technical team has prepared and stored thousands of cubic meters of artificial snow under tons of wood chips. This reserve of artificial snow has been carefully maintained on a daily basis all summer. In order to maximize the quality of the snow cover and allow skiing until the natural snow comes to the rescue, snow cannons will supplement if need be.

Cross country skiing and much more

La Glisse Boréale is now a part of the wintertime activities in the Québec region.

Close to beautiful Québec City, it offers quite a selection of activities for winter sports enthusiasts: training in off-trail backcountry ski shoeing, sledding, a skating rink, a guided boreal forest outing, etc.

Even a different Christmas with the family

In December, you can harvest your own Christmas tree in the heart of the boreal forest.

You can even spend Christmas or New Year celebrations there with the family and discover the forest on snowshoes, participate in a rally, a bingo of the forest, snow sculptures workshops, etc.

A rumor even circulates that Santa Claus might leave a little souvenir behind…

A beautiful and … long winter ahead!
