Ski lovers rejoice: The Canadian Ski Marathon is only a few months away! Famous for its mountainous terrain, it comes as no surprise that one of world’s largest ski festivals will be taking place in Quebec’s beautiful Outaouais and the Laurentians regions.The Canadian Ski Marathon is North America’s longest and oldest Nordic ski tour. Unlike most skiing events, this is not a race. Therefore there are no winners or losers allowing you to ski at your own pace. As well, you are not required to ski the entire distance. The trail runs between Lachute and Gatineau, Quebec alongside the picturesque Laurentian Mountains. The Marathon is a two-day, 160 km ski event. The trail is divided into 5 sections each day, with around 16 kms per section. Come one come all: skiers of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the marathon and can do so without harm, which also makes it a great event for the entire family. At the end of each section throughout the ski trail you will find snack stations, toilets and first aid centers.
