By Isabelle Bouchard 24 February 2019

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!
