Come be a part of the 4th annual ‘Into the White’ snowshoe fun run. It will be a great day of hiking or running on groomed snowshoe trails, while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Laurentian Mountains.

Our motto is: “If you can walk – you can snowshoe!”

The 5 km snowshoe trail is designed for all ages and abilities. Whether you have personal goals and challenges you want to meet or exceed or you just want to get out with the family and enjoy the winter, the 5km loop will be fun for all. For those looking for a bit more of a challenge, you can register for the 12km snowshoe run/walk and really enjoy the varied scenery and terrain.

To ensure that you end this race with a big smile on your face – the finish line will be at the end of the tube run. All participants will take off their snowshoes, climb the launch pad and zoom down the tube hill to cross the finish line.
