It’s a fact: for skiers and snowboarders, winter is just not winter if you don’t go out and hit the slopes! The Quebec Ski Area Association represents 70 ski resorts dispersed around the province. Have you decided that this was the year to introduce your kids to the fun of skiing and riding? These ski resorts host various learning programs and offer services to help them master the basics. Even more experienced athletes will benefit from valuable advice. What’s more, special events will be happening throughout the season, and you can easily plan your ski day by checking out snow conditions at the mountain of your choice on the website. Whether your travels take you north, south, east or west, the ski areas all bring you what you need to make your day a success!

How about outdoor activities in an urban setting

Your next destination is the radiant city of Sherbrooke, the perfect blend of urban flair and proximity to nature. Cyclists in town will be happy to know that they can still practise their favourite sport, thanks to fatbiking being well-established in Sherbrooke. Those who love hiking on the other hand can stretch out their legs on the snow-plowed path on the Lac-des-Nations Boardwalk, and skiers and riders will adore going down the slopes of Mont-Bellevue. There are also places to go skating and snowshoeing. And after a day spent getting exercise in the outdoors, you’ll be glad to sit down to a rewarding meal and a delicious craft brew at any of the city’s esteemed microbreweries.
