ALL ABOUT OUR WINTER ACTIVITIES

SKATING TRAIL (2.5 KM) – THROUGHOUT THE ORCHARD AND IN THE FOREST
An enchanted skating trail of over 2.5 km, passing through our dormant apple trees and our forest area. Skate at your leisure or follow the markers for our observation game, allowing you to fully take in the open space and fresh air!

 

OBSERVATION GAME ON ICE – Find Anika 

Along the icy route are dotted with large panels full of details in which hides a great fan of winter sports that you will have to unearth. If your memory is sharp, maybe you will be able to discover his secret message at the end of the journey.

 

Game on the skating trail.

Approximately 30-45 minutes. 

 

INVESTIGATIVE GAME ON SNOWSHOES, IN THE WOODS – Operation Survival 
 

Did you think your snowshoeing on the quiet, beautiful site of the Labonté orchard would be uneventful? Think again!

 

In this game, you are the survivors of a plane crash and you will be faced with multiple choices through this great adventure of which you are the heroes.
Go from one poster to another, go to the forest, and see if your instincts of survival are as favorable as the aroma of our hot chocolate. (The activity duration is approximately 1½ to 2 hours).

 

Don’t forget your snowshoes!

TO RESERVE

To avoid crowds and ensure a timeslot for everyone, online reservations for our activities are mandatory at this time.
 

The tickets are non-refundable, and we do not offer exchanges.

It is your responsibility to ensure your availability for the date and time chosen, and to be aware of the weather forecast before purchasing your ticket.

In the event that we are forced to close (temperature affecting the quality of the ice or creating a risk for participants) we will notify you by email and will reschedule your ticket for a later date in the 2023 season.
Please note that we must close the activity in case of bad weather (storm, ice) but also when the temperature is mild and above 0°C because this affects the quality of the ice.

Ice conditions

Our ice is made naturally and we depend heavily on weather conditions for its quality.

Our teams work hard to provide you with the right environment to enjoy our winter activities.
