On February 15th, you are invited to join the Ramblers for a snowshoe excursion which will last about 2 h 30 and will cover 8.0 km on the Rigaud Mountain.

Dress in layers acoording to the forecast and always bring some water.

Rendezvous Sunday  at 9:00 am for a 9:10 am departure in the parking lot at the end of Rue de Lourdes in Rigaud (this is behind the arena)

Direction:

To get there, take exit 12 off the 40 for Rigaud. Head west through the town, turn left at the first traffic light and follow the arena signs.

After the hike we usually have lunch at l'Étoile de Rigaud. You are welcome to join us.

REPORT:

The four participants really enjoyed their hike. The air was fresh and clean. The sun sparkled on the snow. There was little wind. The temperature was -18°C, which is comfortable when you are walking. So we walked the 8 km in 2 hours 15 minutes. Road conditions were excellent. As usual the food at l’Étoile was good.
