Winter Activities with a Twist
Because not all winter sports are born equal or are equally loved, visitors in search of an off-the-beaten-path type of winter experience are sure to find it in Montreal, with offerings like ice-fishing on the mighty St. Lawrence River, a game of aptly-nicknamed “chess on ice” (also known as curling), a snowshoe guided tour of Mont-Royal, winter lights photo walk, toboggan by the Beaver Lake and even women’s hockey! However, those less than enthused by the prospect of spending several hours in the biting cold should know that despite the city’s love for winter activities, there is also the possibility of year-round indoor ice-skating at 1000 de la Gauchetière, of downtown’s skyscrapers.
