WHAT TO DO THIS WINTER 2021 ❄️ ⛷️ ⛸️ 🎿🚴
Updated: Mar 26
No doubt this is a difficult and very different winter for everyone. Fortunately, outdoor activities such as skating, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, fat biking and tubing are healthy activities that we can still do, as long as we do it safely.
In our region (OUTAOUAIS) there is currently a curfew in effect between 9:30 pm and 5 am. Travel between regions is not recommended.
