Guided old-time snowshoe tours
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 enthursiasts" 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 firs 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.
