Ski season is upon us! While the winter slopes can be intimidating for many — not to mention, expensive — Mont Sutton, a Quebec ski hill, offers some of Canada's first Yooner rides. Since you're probably wondering, "WTF is a Yooner?" it's a ski/sled hybrid that's a must-do winter activity everyone can enjoy.

Located only 90 minutes outside of Montreal by car, Mont Sutton is the perfect place to try a Yooner. Seated 20 centimetres above the ground with shock absorbers, an easy-to-control handle, and a runner for carving stellar turns on the mountain, you'll feel like you're skiing without needing a single lesson while riding a Yooner.

Luckily for first-timers, the Yooner does not take nearly as much time to grasp as skiing and snowboarding do, and can be easily mastered in as little as one run.

A Yooner rental, lift ticket and helmet come in at $50 plus taxes for two hours, and can be enjoyed on the mountain trails of chairlift II.

Season pass and daily pass holders can rent a Yooner for $25 plus taxes for two hours. While the Yooner can be enjoyed by anyone 8 years and older, riders between ages 8 and 11 must be accompanied by an adult.

The two-hour ride can be booked in three different time blocks: 9 a.m to 11 a.m, 11:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m, and 2 p.m to 4 p.m.

Mont Sutton recommends you book your equipment in advance. Don't worry about needing ski boots — your good 'ole winter boots are the right match for this activity.
