Snowshoeing and Winter Hiking in Bromont

Well known for its ski resort, Bromont also has plenty to offer snowshoeing and winter hiking enthusiasts. With the Parc des Sommets, more than 140 km for winter activities are offered here. An overview of this vast playground and hiking options for you to enjoy throughout the season.

Extremely Pleasant!

The Parc des Sommets de Bromont is made up of five great trail networks: The Lake Gale network, the Mountain, Mounts Berthier and Oak, and the Villageois network. Along with snowshoeing and hiking, each of these networks also offers trails for cross-country skiing and fatbikes. You’ll definitely need more than just one day to explore them all!

This year, the park will also give you access to their new welcome pavilion located near Mount Oak. Practical for getting information, to warm up a bit, and to rent equipment such as snowshoes or fatbikes.
