Cross-country skiing


Laval University’s Montmorency Forest, the world’s largest research and teaching forest, makes headlines once again this year with its famous Boreal Glide! Skiing begins here on October 25th, exclusive in Northeastern North America!


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

From October 26 (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

Montmorency Forest will be closed between Dec. 22nd 2019 at 4 p.m. to Dec. 26 2019 at 4 p.m. Ski tracks open again on Dec 27th.

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