A Family Winter In Brome Missisquoi

To experience winter with your family in the Eastern Townships is to truly love it, especially if you try our suggestions! You’ll even hope spring will arrive late this year!


A Snow Day at Plein Air Sutton

Why? To explore the 21 km cross-country ski trails; to hike in the 12 km network of trails set within a 150-acre, century-old forest; and lastly, to admire the always magnificent landscapes.


Family Skiing

At Bromont, montagne d’expériences, with 142 trails (of which 102 are open all evening) and six snow parks; or yet again at Mont SUTTON, with more than sixty beginner to expert trails. Both mountains offer an exceptional natural setting for a superb day of skiing! Also, if you come during the spring break, keep an eye out for the many special activities they will organize for the occasion.


Trekking at the PENS

Parc d’Environnement Naturel de Sutton (PENS) is the ideal playground for all hikers including those with the tiniest calves and those with the most powerful ones! The Val-Sutton 2.4 km loop and easy 135-metre elevation is perfect for a family outing. The 7.4 km-Round Top trail, on the other hand, will offer your teenagers a rewarding challenge as it reaches an elevation of 420 metres. Definitely a not-to-be-missed experience you will surely add to your list of favourites! Please note that you need to buy your tickets online before your visit.


Snow Cycling, Just for The Fun of It

Would you like to have your family try a new sport? Why not head out to the Centre National de Cyclisme de Bromont to test your fatbike skills? The pros will be glad to help you and the Centre is one of the only places where you can rent a fatbike for your child.

Ice Fishing

Pêche sur glace - la Champlain

A unique experience your children or grandchildren will absolutely love. The outfitter Activité Plein Air Philipsburg will arrange a very special day for you as you fish on Lake Champlain safely with all the amenities you’ll need.

A Well-Deserved Snack

If you crave a mug of rich hot chocolate, Capeline & chocolat in Bedford, Musée du Chocolat de Bromont and Chocolaterie Belge Muriel in Sutton all cater to hot chocolate fans and offer many well-deserved treats after a full day of family outdoor activities.
