The cold and snow in Montreal is rough. But, starting this weekend, it could be ruff.

As part of the 36th edition of the Fête des neiges festival which takes place on Parc Jean-Drapeau, stand up to the snow and cold by getting dragged through it by a pack of happy dogs.

A pack of trained pooches, all properly cared for by Fête des neiges organizers, will take you on a winter trail trek through the woods, hills, sights and sounds of the historic Parc Jean-Drapeau island.

Dogsledding hopefuls usually have to travel outside of the city’s limits to go for a canine-led ride so this is a welcomed alternative and it will take place every weekend starting this Saturday until February 10.
