According to Nancy Déziel, a resident of Shawinigan and avid cross-country skier, there’s no reason not to step outside during the winter season.

So, get out your thermal clothes, wax your skis and show off your cross-country skills, whether they’re basic or of high level. Cross-country skiing is gaining in popularity and Shawinigan offers a huge accessible terrain to discover or rediscover this winter sport.

You must stop at La Mauricie National Park to spend the day and enjoy the spectacular view of the frozen waterfalls or the snow-covered trees.

Suggestions for free slopes if you want to stretch your legs near the downtown area:

Activity available weather permitting.

Suggestions if you want to experience nature or adventure.

Do not hesitate to stop by 2800 du Parc or Dépanneur du Parc to rent skis. You can even take the opportunity to take a break at the Café-Bistro 2800.

If you want to extend your stay, book accommodation or a restaurant. In Shawi, there’s something for everyone!
