Winter can really get depressing, especially if you spend the entire time cooped up indoors.
Let’s face it, that snow ain’t going anywhere so you might as well take advantage of it as best you can.
Of course, skiing isn’t necessarily for everyone. It requires a lot of gear, a lot of time and a lot of practice. But there’s one winter activity everyone can enjoy.
In case you don’t know it yet, Quebec is the best place in the world for tubing. That’s because we’re not satisfied with just sliding down a hill with a tube. Which is why we have giant snow chutes, tornado slides, bobsledding trails, and even giant half pipes.
Here are the 7 craziest places to slide in Quebec:
Village Valcartier’s Extreme Slides
You probably know these guys from their insane indoor water park, but their winter activities are even crazier. They have the Fastest Ice Slide In America (80km/h) and even a Half Pipe made just for tubes!
Glissades des Pays d’en Haut
Located right next to Mont-Avila, this is definitely one of the more popular tubing courses in Quebec. But what makes it especially amazing is their Bobsleigh trail. Yes, you read that right, they have a freakin’ Bobsleigh trail!
Charlevoix Sliding Adventure
If regular tubing seems too boring, try the Charlevoix Sliding Adventure instead. It’s a 7.5 km run that’s so long, you’ll have to stop in chalet to warm up halfway. One ride can take up to 2 hours!
Toboggan Slide Au 1884
This is probably the oldest slide in Quebec. In fact, it’s over 130 years old! It’s older than the Chateau Frontenac. The slide takes you to speeds of up to 70 km/h and as a special bonus, you can enjoy the most spectacular backdrop ever as you slide.
Whenever Tremblant does something, they do it big. And that includes their snow tubing courses. As a bonus this place also offer night time tubing!
It’s definitely NOT one of the coolest ones around. But it’s the closest one. Montreal’s Fête des Neiges taking place at Parc Jean Drapeau.
Super Glissades Saint-Jean-Me-Matha
This place is gigantic! it has everything you could want in a tubing hill and it’s only about an hour away from Montreal.
