    Ice Hockey Passion

    Hockey Rink in Quebec

    Favorite thing: People throughout Canada love their game of Hockey and in Quebec they are probably a little more passionate.

    The Montreal Canadians or Habs are loved in Montreal and in Quebec they miss the old Quebec Nordiques I am sure. They were the NHL team that moved to Colorado know known as the Avalanche.

    Here in this picture I found some people playing hockey right in the middle of the city.

    They call a pick up hockey game like this one a game of "shiney". It's just a group of people out on the ice playing for fun, no goalies or anything.

    Cross Country Skiing in the City!

    Cross Country Skiiers on the Plains of Abraham!

    Favorite thing: I remember being very impressive with the green spaces in Vancouver and the ability to escape in Stanley Park so very close to the city, well Quebec has an equally impressive site.

    Right in the middle of the city is Battlefield Park and 15 km of trails are laid out for the benefit of cross-country skiers, beginners or intermediate. There is also a ski skating course. A ski waxing room and a heated relay are also at your disposal.

    Here I took some quick pictures, so just because you might be coming to Quebec for business don't be afraid to take your skiis!

    LE MASSIF

    by RACCOON1 Written Sep 19, 2004

    Favorite thing: Le mMASSIF is a mountain on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River about a 1.5 hour drive from Quebec City.

    The mountain with a vertical drop of 2600 feet is about as close to the river as possible.

    The view of the St. Lawrence from the top of the mountain is worth the trip . In the winter the ski lifts can get you to the top . In the summer you will have to walk.

    Favorite thing: I'd say that Quebec has to be seen in the winter. Besides avoiding the throngs of tourists, you will get to appreciate the beauty of this old, very European city under cover of snow. Wow... it makes me smile just thinking about it.

    Fondest memory: In winter Quebec is frrrrrrrrrrrrezing !!
    I was around when the temperature was about -23 Celsius !!! In these cases a good and warm Café-cognac can help a lot.
