Inspired by the Montreal Snowshoe Club’s treks up Mount Royal in the 19th century, this exceptional outdoor event features a timed snowshoe race or walk up the mountain followed by an evening of fine food, music and entertainment at the Mount Royal Chalet. Proceeds help finance environmental conservation programs on Mount Royal.

After discovering the mountain’s charms on 2.5 km of lantern-lit paths under the stars, guests enjoy a gourmet buffet, open bar and music in the majestic Mount Royal Chalet.

Festivities include entertainment, prizes and a medal ceremony. Official race results are published on the Sportstats website.

Unique in its kind, the Tuques Bleues celebration on Mount Royal is sponsored by Manulife.
