SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, STARTING JANUARY 9, 2021*.
*Depending on weather conditions
This winter, more than ever, it's time to enjoy outdoor activities! It is therefore with pleasure that TOHU is offering for a third year the loan of cross-country skis and snowshoes for free.
Put on your warm clothes and set off to discover the park Frédéric-Back. Two marked trails totalling 7.5 km allow you to explore this unique park in America.
The loan of cross-country skis and snowshoes is available only to residents of the island of Montreal. This activity is offered through Parc actif, a program powered by Sport et Loisir de l'île de Montréal (SLIM) and carried out with the financial contribution of the Ministère de l'Éducation.
The free activities are presented thanks to the financial contribution of the City of Montreal.
The loan of equipment is only upon registration. Registrations will open every Monday for the following weekend. Please note that the opening of reservations may be delayed at the beginning of the season to make sure the cross-country ski trails are properly layed.
By reserving for more than one person, you confirm that you live at the same address. It is possible to reserve for a maximum of 7 people online. If your family bubble is larger, we invite you to call TOHU's ticket office at 514-376-8648 to register.
Please respect the time of your reservation, otherwise we cannot guarantee the loan of equipment.
When you arrive, please have the reservation confirmation on hand, either a printed copy or on your phone.
Due to weather conditions, the loan of cross-country skis and snowshoes may be cancelled during the season. In such a case, registered participants will be notified by email the Friday before the reservation date.
