There's no reason to stay cooped up inside all winter when you can put on some thermals, wax your skis and go show off your cross-country skiing skills. To accommodate the sport's increasing popularity, Shawinigan offers an extensive area for all levels of skiers to explore.
Make sure to spend a day in the La Mauricie National Park to admire the amazing frozen cascade formations and the snow blanketed trees. And don't forget to come back to Shawinigan to watch, or even participate in, the Défis du Parc – Nordique event. With 50 km of trails containing various circuits to explore, you can push yourself to your limits and end the day with a nice sense of achievement.
