With your family or on your own, you can enjoy the tranquility of nature and the proximity of several animal species. According to our statistics (not scientific), there is a good chance that you will come across a deer on your trail! Keep your eyes open!

Cross-country skiing

DISCOVER THE PLEASURE OF SKIING!

Easy to practice, cross-country skiing allows you to discover Quebec's wide open spaces and snowy forests while doing a physical activity of varying intensity. Novice as well as intermediate skiers will have fun discovering our trails around Lake Taureau. Depending on the mood of the moment, you can choose among our four marked trails in the forest surrounding the Auberge.

Skates

SHOW US YOUR BEST TRICKS!

When winter sets in, our pond is transformed into two huge skating rinks that are maintained daily. One is very often used for team sports, and the other forms a magnifying glass around the fishermen who patiently wait for a trout to bite the hook. Put on one of our pairs of skates and show us what you can do! 

Included in the resort fees. Subject to availability.

Sledding on tube

HURTLE DOWN THE SLOPES AT FULL SPEED!

Take one of our tubes at the Animation Pavilion and head off down the snowy slope near the Inn! It's the perfect winter activity to do with family or friends. Laughter and fun guaranteed!

Don't forget to bring your doggie if you feel like it!

Team sports

GET HOCKEY FEVER!

Ice Hockey
This discipline is part of Quebec's purest sporting tradition. The skating rink, located just across the street from the Inn, is available for many winter activities, including hockey. The goals are already there, ready to receive your shots!

Broom ball on ice
