Alpine Luge Makes an Entrance at Appalaches

Destinations to explore, February 6, 2017 2017-02-06
Adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts can now try alpine luge in the Chaudière-Appalaches region. An exceptional spot for winter sports, this region now has another place where luge is available: the Appalaches resort in Saint-Paul-de-Montminy.

Hold onto your luge with both hands!

Looking for an original and unusual way to hit the slopes? A new sport is surging in popularity in the province. Offered at Appalaches since last year, alpine luge is really taking off this winter thanks to a sizeable snowfall in the regional park and surrounding areas. The top of the mountain – which has a sweeping view – is where the luge trail starts; the 2-km (1.25-mi.) trail is sure to get your adrenalin pumping. Feel the freedom!

A second life for the slopes at the Grande Coulée Mountain

The four-season Appalaches complex is located in a mountainous forest, at the foot of Grande Coulée, which used to be a ski resort. The arrival of alpine luge has made it possible to reuse some of the old slopes, where this exciting sport can make a name for itself. Unlike tubes for sliding, the alpine luge is a craft-built sled that allows better control of the direction and speed. It’s fun for the whole family!

There’s no lack of winter activities at Appalaches!

In addition to the luge, there are many activities on site or nearby for you to thoroughly explore the landscape. The kennel has fifty or so huskies eager to lend a helping paw on your adventure, whether you choose to go dogsledding or dog-snowshoeing, a sport that involves participants being harnessed to a dog that helps them climb the mountain. Other activities offered are hiking, regular snowshoeing, snowmobiling and snow scooting.
