During the holidays, Mount Royal is the perfect place to explore its wooded trails, skate on the ice rink or go tobogganing! Check the opening hours of the public buildings, outdoor installations and visitor services before setting out. This way, you’ll know whether you can lace up your skates in the Beaver Lake Pavilion or warm up in Smith House or the Mount Royal Chalet.

Before heading off, take a look at the opening hours of the snow-tubing lanes and refrigerated skating rink next to the Beaver Lake Pavilion and check the conditions of the outdoor installations to make the most of your visit!
