Before to go, be sure to read safety instructions COVID-19 →
- An incline of barely 5% is ideal for long-distance training, for beginners or to get back in shape;
- Absence of vegetation canopy renders trail surface conditions homogeneous;
- Waxing facilities, refuges, cafés, lodges and microbreweries allow preparing adequately, warm up or simply have a good time;
- Try active transport to the workplace on skis! The trail threads through numerous towns down to Saint-Jérôme where the university, CEGEP or even your workplace are a stone throw from the trail;
- Public transit is also a possibility with commuter trains and bus service on board which skis are allowed.
Cross-country skiing is possible in two distinct sectors: The Mont-Tremblant sector and the sector between Saint-Jérôme and Val David.
Waxing facilities are present at the train station of Piedmont and Sainte-Adèle. See the cross-country map.You will find various refuges, train stations and cafés on the trail to warm up and for “après ski”.
