Sliding is the perfect activity for enjoying the snow with children. If you want a change from your usual park, here are 10 great places to slide this winter.
Of course, there are a lot of people on the Mont-Royal and you will have to wait a bit between two descents, but the festive atmosphere and the proximity of the city are worth the candle. Sliding in tubes in the heart of Montreal before going to eat in a delicious nearby restaurant, isn't it wonderful for a pleasant day out with the family? You can also skate, snowshoe and cross-country ski there.
The slides of the land above
Far from the traditional mound at the corner of the street, the slides of the upper country, located in Piedmont, have several tracks to amuse young and old. There is even a large chalet to warm up from time to time and drink a hot chocolate. You can slide there in tubes, rafting, Tornado and Snow Bobsleigh. That's what we call high-end sliding!
The Dufferin Terrace
Sliding with the kids at oneplace where nature meets history and just behind a castle is something exceptional in itself. Add the St. Lawrence River in the background and you have an almost perfect day. The slides at Dufferin Terrace are a bit pricey at $3 per slide and $10 for a family of 4, but the location and speed are worth a try at least once this winter.
To slide in a huge and magnificent park frequented by cross-country skiers and snowshoeers, the Centre de la nature de Laval is extraordinary. You can even learn to downhill ski at certain times of winter, rent inner tubes and skate. To top it off, most of the activities are free!
If you often go to Gaspésie, you know that it does not only have beautiful beaches to offer. It also has beautiful mountains where you can take the older kids skiing or snowboarding while the little ones slide around in the inner tubes. At Cap-Chat,your children will enjoy the fresh air while sliding at full speed.
Valcartier Vacation Village
This is a must! The Valcartier Vacation Village offers you the highest tube slide in North America. The diversity of activities and the presence of so many children to have fun with make this place the place par excellenceto slide in Quebec.
Saint John of Matha
The super slides Saint-Jean-de-Matha are another must for thrill seekers. Some sectors are so exciting that they are prohibited for those who are less than 1.25m tall. It's like La Ronde… winter!
Coaticook Gorge Park
The activity par excellence of parc de la Gorge de Coaticook is tube sliding. You can use the mechanical ski lift to slide more often without exhausting the children!
The Mount Avila Snow Park offers 19 tube slides including snow rafting and 4 ski lifts. In addition, it is possible to enjoy multiple slides located at the base of the mountain for the little ones. Thanks to a lighting system, you can enjoy the slopes day and night, with family or friends!
