The Snowshoer

Guided snowshoeing tour

Put on your caps, mittens, arrow-head sashes and snowshoes to accompany a 20th century snowshoer in the park, along the course mapped out by the Plains of Abraham’s sports history.

A member of the "snowshoeing enthusiasts" of the Traders'Union, Amédée Fournier (or his wife), will tell you about the local snowshoeing history, but also about various sports secrets along the park trails:

  • the double Stanley Cup Triumph of the Quebec Bulldogs;
  • the Quebec Skating Rink, among the first indoor skating rinks in Quebec City;
  • the Quebec Skating Club which hosted several competitions (hockey tournament, ice skating competition and curling tournament, to name a few);
  • ski jorring, which consists of hitching oneself to a horse or car and being dragged in the snow;
  • and much more!

Let Amédée Fournier tell you about the leisure and sports activities of this “belle époque”. Here is a unique recreational outing that will thrill you with delight. Snowshoes, arrow sash and hot chocolate included.
