A few weeks ago we told you about Pente à Neige –an organization working to bring back skiing to the city by constructing man-made slopes at Parc Ignace-Bourget.

Now we have some even better news because the slopes are now officially open!

According to Pente à Neige’s Facebook page the park includes ski and snowboard courses with a carpet lift, two slopes for tubing, a sliding trail and a free ice rink. We’ve got to say, it looks absolutely incredible!

You can bring your own equipment or it can be rented on site.

In December, Maxellende Pycke of Pente à Neige told Daily Hive that the park will provide Montrealers access to snow activities that are close to home.

“In the past, people used to have the opportunity (to ski) and the idea was to bring back the proximity for the people in Montreal,” she said.

Finally, we’ll have access to a ski hill a bit closer to the city! Ans we can’t wait to check it out.

To find out when Pente à Neige is open for the day, check their updates on Facebook and their website.
