Try Our Snowshoes and Cross-Country Skis – Feb. 22!

Come try our snowshoes and cross-country ski equipment for free in order to celebrate the 10th winter of the Intercultural Outdoor Recreation Program!

When? Saturday February 22nd from 2 – 5 pm

Where? We are located in Jeanne-Mance Park at the corner of Duluth West and Avenue du Parc, just across from Mount-Royal Park.

For whom? Our gear is sized for adults but could also work for teenagers. Our snowshoes are all the same size and adapt to various boot sizes. We will have cross-country ski boots that start at size 4 (35) and go to size 16 (49). We will be lending cross-country skis and poles for a variety of adult sizes. No equipment will be loaned to minors unaccompanied by an adult.

  • Photo ID – a driver’s licence, your RAMQ (health insurance) card, or passport.
  • Dress warmly because equipment loan and eventual line-ups will all be outdoors!
  • Please wear winter boots that come up above your ankles for snowshoeing. No high heels!
