The chilly air carries the promise of a thrilling season as the Voie Verte unveils its snowy trails for another round of exhilarating cross-country skiing! Strap on your skis and join the adventure, as this beloved trail officially kicks off its winter magic.

Early Morning Grooming: The Trail's Fresh Canvas

There's something magical about being the first to carve through freshly groomed trails. Our team was up at the crack of dawn to ensure that the entire stretch, from the Loretta Loop to Cascades, was perfectly groomed for eager skiers like you. It's a labor of love, and we're thrilled to make these trails ready for your enjoyment!

A New Era: Municipality Takes the Reins

This year marks a change in the trail's grooming management as the Municipality steps in. It's a transition period, and we kindly ask for your understanding as we adapt to these changes. A huge shout-out goes to Mr. Lafleur and his team, who dedicated 20 incredible years to serving and enhancing our community through their invaluable contributions.

Local Insights: The Voice of the Community

Our fellow skiers have already started exploring the trails and sharing their experiences. One enthusiast encountered the service driver at 5 PM and got the scoop – classic ski tracks await when the snow drifts accumulate to a generous 10cm. The excitement is palpable, and anticipation is building!

On the flip side, another member of our community returned from a delightful classic ski but expressed concerns about trail users inadvertently walking on the designated tracks. It's a valid point, and suggestions like launching an awareness campaign and installing clear signage have been put forward to preserve the pristine conditions of the tracks.

Let's Ski Responsibly: A Call for Awareness

While we dive into the winter wonderland, let's do our part to preserve the pristine conditions of the trails. Each step or stride counts, so let's spread awareness about the importance of not walking on the classic tracks. It's a simple gesture that goes a long way in maintaining the quality of the skiing experience for everyone.

Embrace the Winter Adventure!

As the cross-country skiing season kicks off on the Voie Verte, we're poised for a season filled with snowy adventures, camaraderie, and the sheer joy of gliding through nature's snowy canvas. Let's celebrate this season together, respecting the efforts of those who groom these trails and ensuring a fantastic experience for all winter enthusiasts!

So, gear up, respect the tracks, and let the snowy escapades begin!

See you on the trails! 🎿❄️
