Eastern Township Getaways for Cross-country Skiing

Our Quebec winters bring together all the winning conditions for initiating ourselves or for perfecting our technique on our many glide trails. Enjoy the snow and all these quiet spaces. Come play outside and discover cross-country skiing in the Eastern Townships!

A true Nordic sport, taking its origins from Scandinavia, cross-country skiing allows us to practise an outdoor discipline in a fun manner, while we admire the magnificent landscapes of our region. In fact, this style of skiing offers us a complete workout by developing our endurance, strength, speed, flexibility and coordination. No matter your level or technique, from beginner to expert, several Brome-Missisquoi establishments have made many snow-covered trails available that will charm you as you glide your way across different terrains. Here are some of these accessible places open for practising this popular sport!

Plein Air Sutton

To take advantage of a sunny day, PleinAir Sutton has a 15-kilometre network of groomed trails for outdoor sports amateurs of all levels. Plus, they have plenty of equipment available for rentals for the entire family. The centre also offers a trail map to guide you through the most beautiful landscapes of their century-old forest.

At Au Diable Vert

This outdoors sports centre located in Glen Sutton invites ski adepts to experience the most wonderful moments on its many hills with their spectacular panoramic views. Skiers can practise off-trail skiing on 3 to 6 kilometres of paths depending on the weather conditions. However, there are no rentals available here.

The Cowansville Golf Club

In the heart of nature, the Cowansville Golf Club has a 4-kilometer loop for all ski enthusiasts with their own equipment. It is possible to consult the conditions on the website of the town of Cowanvsille.

Access free of charge. See website. 



Parc des Sommets Bromont

Whether you are a fan of classic skiing or skating, you will have fun on the different networks of the Parc des Sommet. You will be treated to a splendid view of the surrounding mountains along a 8 km loop adapted for both classic skiing and skating. The 15 km long C1 hiking belt around the mountain is designed for classic cross-country skiing. Finally, the Villageois Network is another option for classic style cross-country skiers. This is an easy level trail and links the Adamsville sector, the Parc Scientifique and the Bromont arena by way of Vieux-Bromont. The entire 17-kilometre network is mechanically groomed.

Access to the trails is free for Bromont residents. The fee for non-Bromont residents is donated to the organization Les Amis des Sentiers who are the only ones to ensure the sustainability of the trails in Bromont by seeing to their protection, maintenance and development.

Consult the entire offer on the Parc des Sommets website or on the global trail map.
