Three Unique Winter Experiences

Updated on Nov 22, 2021

This winter, offer yourself a great time as a couple or with the kids as you discover these three unusual activities. We guarantee there will be plenty of laughter and fun!

Sutton’s Yooner Experience

When you go to the Sutton ski hill, you’ll discover this unusual yet easy-to-handle contraption, which will allow you to head down the slopes in a seated position. Have we piqued your curiosity? The Eastern Townships Tourism editorial team tested this thrilling activity last winter. They’ll have you discover what it means to go down a hill on a yooner in their own words and pictures right here!

Duration: 2 hours
Cost: $50 to rent your yooner for your lift ticket.

Ski Joering in Stukely-Sud

Still rather an unknown glide sport in Quebec, ski joering is practised on alpine skis as you’re being pulled by a horse. In the Townships, the farm Ski Joering Stukely-Sud offers the activity in two formats: the first being a horse pulled forest outing, and the second, a skill-testing course that will challenge you with its obstacles, small jumps and tight turns. For a sneak a peek, you can view some pictures and watch the capsule describing our visit to Ski Joering Stukely-Sud in the winter of 2019.

Duration: 1 hour
Cost: $20/person

Kick Sledding in Magog

On a kicksled, all you need to do is yourself give a few push kicks to start gliding on the snow or ice. You can rent a kicksled by going to Vie de Plein air to enjoy one, two four or eight hours of fun as you head out on Magog’s ice trail or on Lake Memphremagog.

Duration: 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours
Cost: Between $13 and $30 $/kicksled
