Terrific toboggan runs around Montreal

We’ve done some research to help you find the nearest tobogganing hill to you...so grab your sled, dress the kids warmly and head for the hills

The  latest and greatest tobogganing hill is being inaugurated this winter at La Pente à Neige, a winter playground that opened two years ago at Ignace Bourget Park near Angrignon metro. This year, the park will have the longest tubing hill on the island (300 metres long) with a magic carpet to bring people to the top of the hill. This is especially helpful for young kids whose little legs get tired traipsing back up the hill, again and again. Below are some other spots your family might want to try out.
