Enjoy nature that makes you feel good at the Plains of Abraham

News release

November 27, 2020 – Québec – The National Battlefields Commission

Every winter, the region’s cross-country skiers eagerly await the opening of cross-country ski trails on the Plains of Abraham. At the National Battlefields Commission, we understand their readiness to hit the trails, especially this year, given the limited number of activities available. However, a minimum amount of snow is required to lay out the trails. Rest assured that we will be pleased to announce their opening as soon as a date is determined. Until then, the Park remains open to pedestrians and sports enthusiasts. Come and enjoy nature that makes you feel good!
