Celebrate the new Halte des Trains-de-Neige in Mont-Tremblant on Sunday, August 7

You are cordially invited to join us in celebrating the addition of a beautiful new trail rest area along the Mont-Tremblant section of the Trans Canada Trail on Sunday, August 7 at 11:00 am. The event will be held rain or shine so dress for weather. A short ceremony will be held, followed by a light snack. (See directions below)

The Halte des Trains-de-Neige is located on the P’tit Train du Nord linear park, a section of Quebec’s Trans Canada Trail that is popular year-round for recreation, sight-seeing and even commuting to work. This lovely rest area for outdoor enthusiasts has been built in honour of Claudine and Stephen Bronfman, whose contributions through their family foundation have been instrumental in the development and enjoyment of the Trans Canada Trail across the country.

Directions from Montreal:

– Follow Highway 15 north which turns into Highway 117 at Ste-Agathe
