Winter activities Canada
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Winter activities

The snowmobile is of course the activity you think of first. 20,000 miles of sign-posted paths criss-cross Quebec; you must respect the signposting as much as when on the road. For those preferring a calmer means of transport, there are the dog sleds. However, driving them is more difficult than it looks; it requires good command and stamina. Once the snow falls, the hikers' paths become snowshoe hiking paths. With more than 150 skiing stations, skiing is very common, even at night, as some tracks are lit up until 10.30pm. Cross-country skiing and ice skating are also widely done in Quebec and there are many good quality infrastructures for this. A lot calmer, hand-line fishing also has a good following? a cabin, a bench, a hole in the ice, and that's it. Coming to Quebec in the winter is a real pleasure for all those who love ice and snow sports. Make the most of it!

You won't find any Alpine-style slopes here but rather easier runs which are often illuminated by night and close to the cities.

Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing

Unlike cross-country skiing, you don't need a specially designed area for snowshoeing; as long as there is enough snow on the ground you can head off on your own.
