Ice ring, gliding hill, cross-country ski fat bike trails, trails, snowshoe trails and walking loops are part of the winter activities offered in this large regional park located just 10 km from Lorraine. The opening hours for the winter season are from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm This agreement does not however guarantee a place or a parking space.
Lorraine Golf Club
Other good news for cross-country skiing enthusiasts: two loops of about 4 km each will be groomed and marked at the Lorraine golf course this winter, and a walking corridor will be created. The youngest will be able to have fun on the gliding mound that will be made, and skating enthusiasts will benefit from an extended schedule, by reservation, for free skating at the arena. The tracks will be maintained every week by a specialized private company.
Mayor Jean Comtois admits to being very proud of these new service offers: “Citizens have long been asking us to have access to cross-country ski trails in Lorraine. Several reiterated this wish during the last public consultation on parks and green spaces. This shows that the comments are read and heard. In Lorraine, we work hard to entertain and get our citizens moving. Physical activity and the great outdoors are good for morale and help ward off depression and anxiety related to the context of the pandemic. Movement is good for the body, the head and the heart! All that’s missing is a few snowfalls to fully appreciate our Quebec winter.”
Over the next few weeks, various signage elements will be deployed on the two loops of the Lorraine golf course. The users of the developed tracks will be invited to respect the signs in order to ensure good cohabitation between cross-country skiers and walkers. In addition, compliance with the health instructions issued by the Public Health Department will be required. It should also be noted that the conditions of access to the Domaine vert park may change without notice. Citizens are invited to consult the measures in force at all times before traveling.
