Skishoeing

Skishoeing is a perfect hybrid of downhill skiing and snowshoeing and allows you to climb the trails, enjoying the snow-covered forest, and then ski down the meticulously-groomed trails. Making the underbrush created by logging accessible to skishoers is our goal!

Already recognized for its strength in developing outdoor activities, the Montmorency Forest abounds in managed forest areas and trails suitable for skishoeing. Follow the trails, explore different undergrowth and enjoy the scenery. The Montmorency Forest has an exceptional winter and with our many snow gauges, you will know exactly how much snow you’re having fun in!

Through safe and properly labeled tracks, you will see the surrounding area and the beautiful Balsam Fir - White Birch Forest which is our pride. Our development model helps maintain biodiversity by safeguarding the distinctive ecological features of this natural forest. Enjoying a layout according to the principles of best current forest knowledge, the Montmorency Forest has perfectly combined outdoor activities and logging.

Independent Outing with or without equipment rental: Whether or not you have experience in backcountry skiing, all it takes is a right of access, your equipment and a map of our skishoeing center. In just 20 minutes you arrive at the foot of one of the two mountainsides. From there, it is yours to explore; areas rising gradually or more steeply depending on your level of agility. Some trails have been groomed to start the season with a minimum thickness of snow. A rest stop and a terrace have been built. There is no restriction to practicing other winter sports (skiing, snowboarding, split-board, telemark, etc.) however, keep in mind that there is no ski lift. Fifty pairs of ski poles and snowshoes are available for rent on site. It is possible to reserve equipment in advance.
