The natural elevation of Mount Royal Park is conducive to cross country skiing. Its 16 km of slopes are suitable for beginner and intermediate skiers. Equipment can be rented on site.


Smith House and Beaver Lake are starting points for cross country skiers. The slopes, which are groomed daily, overlook landscapes that are sometimes wooded and sometimes open. On the slopes, you can ski skate style (4 km) or alternative style (12 km).
