Montreal's First-Ever Permanent "Urban Ski Slope" Is Officially Open

Hitting the slopes doesn’t require heading out of the city anymore thanks to a new winter sports complex offering skiing, snowboarding, and tubing right in Montreal. 

Created by non-profit groupLa Pente à Neige, the “urban ski slope” is located at Ignace-Bourget Park, a short walk away from Angrignon metro. 

Three sections are currently open on the slope. One is reserved for snowboarding or skiing, another for snow tubing, and one is set up for sliding down on a sled or toboggan. 

Of the three, only the sledding hill is completely free. The free sledding area is open all season and accessible at any time, but the hill isn’t maintained or supervised, notes La Pente à Neige on their website

Both the snow tube and ski/snowboard slopes are supervised and closed during off hours. The two also require an entrance fee, with equipment rentals offered as well. 

If your financial situation prevents you from being able to access Ignace-Bourget Park winter sports complex, La Pente à Neige is offering a 50% discount to qualifying individuals as part of their Financial Aid Program, provided that certain documents are shown to staff. 

Residents of the Sud-Ouest burrough can also enjoy a 15% discount on regular prices.

It’s worth noting that the ski and snowboard slopes are reserved for youths under the age of 14. Lessons for kids are also offered. 

Enjoying the snow tubing area, however, is an all-ages affair. Anyone can rip down the slope in a tube, with prices dependant on age. 

A snowboard park where folks can do tricks and show off their skills is also in the works, La Pente à Neige told CBC
