What to do with your family during the Holidays

By Isabelle Bergeron 20 December 2018

You’ve been waiting a while for this time of the year, when the entire family can spend special moments together and create precious new memories. . .


Hiking and Snowshoe Trails Galore!

You’re lucky! we’ve ordered enough snow in the Eastern Townships to make sure you’ll have plenty for your hiking and snowshoeing activities! Whether you’re heading towards Mont-Gale in Bromont or Plein Air Sutton, you’ll discover about 100 kilometres of pure fun, wonderful landscapes and the freshest air possible.


Thousands of Downhill Trails!

Family, adventure, contemplative . . . no matter what type of skiing you’re looking for, you’ll find what you want at Bromont, montagne d’expériences: 142 trails, including 32 glade runs, six recently improved snow parks, 102 illuminated evening ski trails, a new hybrid chairlift. . . You could practically spend your entire Holiday vacation here and enjoy a new experience each time!

To put on your calendar: Are you ready for a White Night adventure on the mountain? Your teens will adore this special Holiday event! Music, games, challenges, etc.

For glade skiing amateurs, mount Sutton’s slopes are known to be among the best in all of Canada. Whether you opt for skiing, snowboarding, or telemarking, you’ll enjoy a very unique sports experience thanks to the quality of the trails and the generous microclimate, offering a lot of snow and deep powder for the mountain’s gladed trails. You’ll also love the festive ambiance you’ll find everywhere around the ski hill.

New this year: you’ll be able to rent their “Yooner” throughout the entire season! This kind of “snow cart” caused quite a sensation last year during spring break; fun and easy to control, the yooner will please your small and tall alike!


A Very Bright Festival

The Lac-Brome in Lights Festival will reach its peak on December 27 at 6 p.m. in Coldbrook Park, where you’ll enjoy fireworks exploding high above in a multitude of colours! There’s also the Garden of Lanterns which will continue to spread its magic until January 6. If you’re in the area, spend a little time in the park; you’ll leave with a smile on your face and your children’s eyes will be filled with sparkling stars!


Introduce Your Family to a Fatbike Experience

At the Centre national de cyclisme de Bromont, via the Mount Oak trail network, located in Bromont as well, or at Plein air Sutton, you’ll have access to about thirty kilometres of trails to acquaint yourself with this more and more popular sport. Why? Just because it’s a lot of fun!


Movies for the Whole Family at an Affordable Price? YES!!!

From December 26 to 31, the Cinéma Princesse in Cowansville offers its Ciné-Famille Special. They’ve scheduled movies your youngest will love as much as your Auntie Lisette . . . especially since they’ll be presented in the morning and cost only $3! All you’ll still need to do is buy popcorn!
