When it snows
All good things come to an end – and though summer is a time to revel in the outdoors, outdoorsy Québecers are unperturbed by the onset of winter. When the snow arrives, walking tracks in the city’s parks become cross country ski trails, an outdoor ice skating rink appears at Place d’Youville, a square in the heart of the city, and the gut-clenching Québec City ice toboggan run draws large crowds from December to March. Ice climbers scale the now frozen cascades at Montmorency Falls, downhill skiers swarm to Mont Sainte Anne, many of the hiking trails at the Jacques-Cartier park become great territory for snow shoe hiking –- and with typically Québecoise exuberance, the outdoor fun continues.
