Winter Activities

Come discover La Mauricie National Park decked out it in its most spectacular winter finery. Experience this wonderland and its exceptional cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities.

In order to make the most of your outing and avoid any unpleasant incidents, here are a few guidelines to follow:

For your safety

Plan your outing around the weather forecast, snow conditions, and the distance you will be travelling.

Plan to get back before nightfall.

Inform someone of your itinerary.

Make sure you’re equipped to survive several hours in the cold. In case of an emergency situation, here is a list of suggested items:

  • A warm change of clothing
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Fire-starting kit
  • Whistle
  • First aid kit
  • Survival shelter (large orange garbage bag)

  • Orientation and communication kit (park map, compass, GPS, cellular phone, etc.)
  • Enough food and water
  • Snowshoes and/or crampons

Volunteer patrollers from the Canadian Ski Patrol are also on site within the network of trails. Do not hesitate to ask them for help should you need it.
