Québec City, January 26, 2011 - "Québec is the ultimate winter city. It boasts an outdoor playground right in the heart of town for all to enjoy, making it the ideal place to hold the 7th edition of Pentathlon des neiges – La vie sportive!" noted Québec City Tourism chair Alain April in reiterating his organization's support for the event. This is the fourth year Québec City Tourism is helping promote Pentathlon des neiges – La vie sportive through its support fund for Québec City area tourist events. The event will run from January 29 to February 27.

The event lasts several weeks and features an array of disciplines. It is a big tourist draw for Québec City as athletes and their travel companions converge for days at a time in this exciting winter destination brimming with cultural and recreational activities.

The Pentathlon is held at a great time of year and reinforces Québec City's reputation as a top winter destination. "The Plains of Abraham are only steps from Old Québec. They are the perfect venue to showcase the beauty and richness of Québec City and its surrounding area and are within easy reach of attractions, hotels, and restaurants," added Mr. April.
