Trail conditions

La Mauricie National Park

Extreme cold warning

Dress warmly and wear several layers of clothing. Cover your head and avoid uncovering your hands as frostbite can appear within minutes on skin exposed to the wind chill. Go outside for a short period of time and keep an eye on vulnerable people, especially young children.

Due to these extreme conditions, cross-country ski trail grooming operations will resume on Saturday, February 4.

Défis du parc - Nordique

From February 15 to 18, the 12th edition of the Défis du parc - Nordique will take place. During these four days, cross-country ski trails #6, #6A et #11 will be accessible but could be occupied by various activities.
