La Mauricie National Park

La Mauricie National Park invites you to experience winter in one of the most beautiful natural areas in Canada. The numerous snowshoeing trails will guide you to a breathtaking panoramic view. As soon as the snow begins to fall, the ski trails will let you enjoy the moment and connect with this protected nature.

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.
