Winter Sports at Their Best in Montreal
Gather round tuques and mittens, because Montreal doesn’t do things by halves when it comes to wintery workouts! While it is possible to do just about any winter sport on top of Mont-Royal—including downhill skiing and tubing—, avid cross-country skiers should head to Parc-Nature du Bois de l’Île-Bizard, which offers the most enchanting winter wonderland setting thanks to considerable quantities of snow and dense forests filled with mature trees. Snowshoers will enjoy the tranquil scenery at Parc Cap Saint-Jacques and the short but challenging trails of Parc Nature Bois-de-Liesse (not to mention the cosy chalets for post-workout hot cocoa). Toboggan fans will find their pick at quaint riverside Parc de l’Île de la Visitation.
