Off-piste skiing is a bit like alpine adventure skiing, snow in abundance but without ski lifts. It’s necessary to deserve climbs in climbing skin before descending on the snowy slopes.

The guided tour will allow you to discover the alpine hike and familiarize yourself with the equipment. In addition, it will allow you to discover the off-piste territory of Jacques-Cartier National Park.

The route begins with a path to immerse yourself in the technique of displacement, then we will go to make our own trace in the undergrowth, with alternating ascents and descents, which will bring us to a heated tent for the dinner break.

The return will be done by a flat path along the Jacques-Cartier River to the reception of the national park.
