Hike Description:

The group will leave the main chalet at 6:30 p.m. and we wil begin the hike with a maple taffy on snow, served in our sugar shack.  You will then be invited to put on your snowshoes and follow our nature interpretive guide that will guide you all along our torch-lit trails.

We then stop for a little break at our campfire to enjoy a healthy snack and hot chocolate. (included in the package).

If you wish to only do the 900 m hike, our assistant guide will accompany you back to the chalet where you can enjoy the outside campfire, our snow tubing hills or heat up beside the fireplace in the chalet.  

If you wish to continue for the 1500 m hike, you will follow our guide through the more intermediate trails back to the chalet.
