October 12, 2017 (Quebec City, QC) – Laval University’s Montmorency Forest, the world’s largest research and teaching forest, makes headlines once again this year with its famous Boreal Glide. Skiing begins here on October 27th, exclusive in Northeastern North America!

For the fifth year, our technical team has prepared thousands of cubic meters of artificial snow and stored it under tons of wood chips throughout the summer. Our artificial snow reserve, under production since February 2017, has been monitored and cared for daily by our maintenance team. Result: we will be able to cover a ski run of between 2 kilometres starting October 27. To maximize the quality of the snow and permit skiing until the arrival of natural snow, snow cannons will also contribute to snow production.

The Boreal Glide is now part of the Quebec City region’s winter destination activities, welcoming, in addition to cross-country ski lovers, hundreds of skiers from American and Canadian university programs and ski clubs of all caliber to prepare their season. Tracks are not only opened to athletes, but to enthusiasts of all calibre!

In order to take full advantage of the resources, our lodge can welcome 150 visitors and provides fireplace-equipped lounges, entertainment theatres, classrooms and a cafeteria serving a varied menu with a boreal flavour!

You can reserve now for your colleagues and yourself: or 418-656-2034.
