Sucrerie de la Montagne

And guess what? Apart from watching it all happen, you can have some.

There’s also horse-drawn carriages, wagons and an all-you-can-eat sugaring off feast.

When: February 11 to March 10
Time: 10 am – 7:30 pm
Where: 300, Chemin St-Georges, Rigaud

Natrel Skating Rink

Start your week off in stride. Actually.

Known for its outstanding quality of ice, excellent facilities, and breathtaking views of the city and the Saint Lawrence River, this is the place to go skating in Montreal.

There’s no better way to stick it to winter than bundling up and hitting the ice.

The chilled 2,500 square metre rink features a cozy village right in front of the ice and is a puck’s throw away from Bistro Bonsecours for a little post-game refresher.

Natrel’s Skating Rink plays rock, classical and jazz music on large outdoor speakers to add to your soundtrack of whizzing down the ice.

When: Monday, February 11
Time: 10 am – 9 pm
Where: Natrel Skating Rink, Bonsecours Basin
Price: $6.95 general admission, $4.90 kids aged 6 – 12, free for children under 6
