Initiation to backcountry skiing in the evening at Frédéric Back Park
In the evening, under the lights of the city, from 5 pm to 7 pm, introductions to off-piste cross-country skiing (also called ski touring) will be offered to adults aged 16 and over. Off-piste cross-country skiing is part of the Nordic ski family, equipment is similar to classic cross-country skiing, except that skis are a bit wider for more buoyancy on snow, bindings are more robust for stability and the boots are stiffer. Off-piste cross-country skiing is the perfect way to explore Quebec's hilly hinterland and out-of-the-way trails. Participants will be accompanied during this outing by professional guides who will ensure their safety and interpretation of the site.
