More and more ski resorts now offer opportunities for fun in the warm season, and the vast majority of these exploit their vast playground brilliantly: mountain biking and hiking trails with multiple lookouts and towers observation are among the most developed activities in ski resorts, with nearly 40 resorts offering this type of development. The rise in popularity of mountain biking is undeniable: several resorts are currently in the development, expansion and construction phase of trail networks for all levels and all types of practices. Cycling enthusiasts will see new learning areas and roller tracks (pumptracks), in addition to seeing improvements to existing trails.
Water parks are also popular with Quebecers wanting to cool off in wave pools, water slides and paddling pools.

In addition, Sommet Saint-Sauveur will inaugurate its new four-lane dry slide during the summer.
Small and big monkeys will also be served this summer in more than 10 ski resorts where aerial courses and zip lines are on the menu. In addition, new features are announced at Mont Sutton (Eastern Townships) with the installation of a zip line with mountain turns, a first in North America, and at Camp Fortune (Outaouais) with a double zip line connecting the two peaks of the mountain. This is an opportunity to admire the landscapes at the treetops, while experiencing a ton of strong emotions!
By combining these summer activities with camping at the top or at the base of the mountain or even a day of golf, not to mention unusual and unifying activities such as musical events, disc golf, the cinema park or a luminous experience in evening, Quebecers will be delighted with their getaway to the ski resort!
