There’s nothing like a toboggan ride to make wintertime enjoyable. Montréal is full of slopes where you can go sledding free of charge.

Sledding is one of the most accessible wintertime activities. Find slopes in your neighbourhood.

The joys of nature 

The Pointe-aux-Prairies and Cap-Saint-Jacques parks feature a “countryside in the city” concept and offer equipment rental directly on site.

The Parc-nature Bois-de-Liesse has two sledding mounds. It’s a perfect place for birdwatchers, as the park has feeders to attract them.

At the Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation, you can pair your sledding adventure with a tour of the old mill ruins that date back to the 1700s.

Slopes with a view 

From the top of Mount Royal Park, speed down the inner tube slope ($) or access the open sledding lanes with your own sled. Before you leave, admire the colours of the setting sun on the dome of Saint Joseph’s Oratory. 

At Parc Jean-Drapeau, you can sled down the natural slope of Espace 67 to the sounds of music, while taking in a spectacular view of the city centre.  

Parc Ignace-Bourget also offers breathtaking views of the city centre from its sledding lane.  

At Parc du Pélican, you can sled on a small mound, away from the ambient noises of the city, while enjoying the view of a container transformed into a work of art. 

New heights 

At Parc des Hirondelles, put your climbing to the test by climbing a slope of considerable height. The illuminated mound at Parc Ahuntsic is also a must-see. 

Enjoy skiing with the family as you descend the slopes in Parc Lafond, Parc Joseph-Paré and Parc Père-Marquette.  

The Francesca-Cabrini, Félix-Leclerc, Carlos-d ‘Alcantara, Des Rapides, Lacharité and Du Pélican parks, as well as the grounds of the LaSalle borough hall have snow machines, to extend the season and refine elevation differences.

Check snow conditions before traveling.
