Spring Skiing Conditions

The state of the tracks changes throughout the day, in relation with temperature changes. It’s important to study the weather forecast in relation with the last grooming to be able to foresee the skiing conditions. We normally expect icy surfaces in the Morning and soft melting surfaces in the Afternoon. The skier is responsible to evaluate his capacity to ski in those conditions.


The Montmorency Forest offers the longest cross-country ski season in Quebec, thanks to the special climatic conditions and its snow cannons!

From October 28 (unique in Quebec!), our trails are open to the public and to athletes!


Throughout the winter, our network of natural snow trails are maintained with the help of a grooming machine and the remaining land is available for off-trail skiing (about 25 km. with some restrictions).

Services: ski equipment rental, waxing room, showers as well as a cafeteria.

The Montmorency Forest is a member of the cross-country ski resort network in the Quebec region. For more information, go to rssfrq

The Canadian Ski Patrol is present at the Forest all along the season! Thank you!
