Snow conditions and course modification


February 13, 2024

Good news!

Despite the unstable winter and current snow conditions in the Quebec City region, we are able to hold a full event, with all five sports disciplines of the Pentathlon des neiges Sun Life maintained.

To achieve this, modifications have been made to the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing courses.

A snow cannon is currently at work to improve the snow cover on the entire site and courses.

The Pentathlon des neiges Sun Life team is working hard to offer you the best possible conditions in the current situation!

Thank you for your cooperation, and enjoy the final stretch of preparation!
