Besides the comfort of Auberge Saint-Antoine, another great place to enjoy a snowy winter is in the natural beauty of Jacques-Cartier Park.

A article written by Margo Pfeiff captured the experience in an article headlined “Winter fun at Quebec’s Jacques-Cartier Park.”

Pfeiff: “Located less than a 30 minute drive from downtown Québec City, Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier is a dramatic landscape of mountains and steep-sided glacial valleys.

In winter this area is a magnet for snowshoe and cross-country ski enthusiasts, and this year the park is more accessible than ever. Snow is now being cleared off the road into a new Discovery and Visitors Centre, a winter base open daily with a visitor information service, convenience store and food outlet.”
