Skiing, sledding and winter fun in the city

Skiing, sledding and winter fun in the city

From a walk in a wooded trail to cross-country skiing, Montréal is the perfect place for a change of scenery. With only a round-trip fare, discover parks with marked trails, snow-covered hills and paths far from city traffic. Short of listing all the spots where you can enjoy winter in Montréal, here are our favourite, easy-to-access locations.

For cross-country skiing: check the trail conditions in the City of Montréal’s borough parks and major nature parks. Some places need reservations in advance.

Parc nature de l’île-de-la-Visitation

At any time of year, the Des Prairies River is always in sight at the Parc nature de l’île-de-la-Visitation in the north of the Island. The park feels like far away from home, despite being easily accessible.
