The boreal glide: a 1.5 km Nordic ski trail as early as November 1!

Quebec City, October 24, 2013 – Laval University`s Montmorency Forest doesn’t do things like everyone else! Skiing begins here on November 1. Our technical team prepared and stored more than 120,000 cubic feet of artificial snow under tons of wood chips throughout the summer. Our artificial snow reserve, under production since December 2012, has been monitored and cared for daily by our maintenance team. Result: we will be able to cover a 1.5 kilometre ski run starting November 1! To maximize the quality of the snow and permit skiing for the entire month of November, snow cannons will also contribute. A first in North-eastern North America!
Each year, numerous skiers from American and Canadian university programs and ski clubs of all caliber capitalize on the Montmorency Forest’s facilities to prepare for their season. In order to take full advantage of the resources, our hostel can welcome 150 visitors and provides lounges, classrooms and a cafeteria.
Since winter will soon be knocking at our door, reserve now for your colleagues and yourself: or 418-656-2034.
