update from Winter Sports Committee
updated February 15, 2021
Since Montreal remains in a Covid-19 Red Zone, the planned bus trips for skiing and snowshoeing are cancelled. Thank you for your willingness to participate in these outings. We certainly missed getting together with the Randonnée family, but not the early morning departures in -20C weather!
We hope you have been enjoying the magnificent winter weather with your friends and family. We invite you to share your experiences on The Randonnée Aventure Facebook page.
See you on the trails close to home
The Winter Sports Committee has compiled some links of Montreal nature parks and snow centres for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and walking, listed below. Many of the Ville de Montreal pages (first 3 links) are not available in English right now, but the city is building another site, Montreal.ca (4th link), which has more English versions.
The first 3 articles (Ville de Montreal large parks and nature parks) feature links to snow conditions and maps of each park, including trails for skiing, snowshoeing, and walking. They contain a lot of information and are updated regularly.
We hope that you will find this information helpful and will be inspired to explore new places not so far from home. We all look forward to returning to our regular RA destinations by bus, but we can still enjoy our skiing and snowshoeing close to home. Stay safe!
