Posted by Skaidra Puodziunas on Feb 24, 2015 12:24:02 PM

Friends always told me there’s nothing like La Belle Province in the winter months. The snow-sprinkled region offers unique outdoor activities, Quebecois festival culture, and a remarkable landscape that blossoms in the deep freeze. I finally had the opportunity this past month to see for myself the wonders of Quebec in the winter time.

Sliding Through Winter at Valcartier

Posted by Stacey Costa on Mar 3, 2014 12:50:08 PM

As I skim through the headlines I see people fed up with winter. Most are just sick of all this cold and snow. However, the people that enjoy winter activities love this. But who has time to learn how to ski or snowboard? And tobogganing can get so boring after a while. Well the people in Quebec City have a real treat just 20 minutes north of the old city, Valcartier Vacation Village, known as North America’s largest winter playground. Since opening in 1963 with only a couple slides, Valcartier has now become a popular place to visit for summer and winter. The park is open to all ages and the best part is that you don’t need to be an expert in winter athletics. The basics of riding these slides are:

  1. Put on your winter gear
  2. Jump in a tube
  3. Launch off the peak of a slope

Best of all, there is a conveyer belt of handles that you grab to bring you back up the slope. No more running up the hill with a heavy toboggan.

Most of the slides are for all ages and located in the Avalanche and Central section with seven to nine slides to choose from in each area. However, for the adrenaline junkie there are slopes where you can reach up to 80 kilometers an hour and catch the beautiful view of the Jacques-Cartier River and Valley. 

These slopes are named after famous mountain ranges and peaks, such as “Himalaya” and “Everest.” At 33.5 meters high, Everest stands as one of their tallest slides and listed under their extreme category. Almost all the slides allow group sliding where you are able to link your tube with your friends.
