No offense, Mont Tremblant, but we might hit the slopes a bit closer to home this winter as La Pente à Neige has constructed a man-made ski hill at Parc Ignace-Bourget.

The second edition of the urban hill is big enough for up to 250 people and there’s also a mini slope on site to accommodate up to 50 mini-skiers.

The hill welcomes skiers, snowboarders, tubers and sledders of any age and features a cozy heated yurt, mulled wine, hot chocolate and music.

Guests can bring their own equipment or it can be rented on site.

The slope is 280 metres long and has professionals on site to teach people proper skiing/snowboarding/falling down techniques.

Organizers say the park provides Montrealers access to snow activities without having to get off the island.

The hill is accessible via both Monk and Angrignon metro stations.
