What to do this weekend – January 28 to 30

Here are some suggestions for activities to enjoy during this final weekend in January.

Ride Granby’s Estriade Trail

If you like riding a fat bike, you’ll be happy to learn that a section of the Estriade bike trail that links Granby with Shefford – 13 km in total - is now accessible. Walkers are also welcome to use this portion of the trail.

Hone your skills on the downhill slopes

Calling all you alpine skiers and snowboarders! There are numerous downhill trails where you can practise your swoops and turns at the Townships’ four ski centres - so dress warmly and head for the hills…By the way, most of the alpine hiking trails at the region’s ski centres are also open.

Support the region’s restaurateurs

Just because dining establishments are currently closed (until January 30) doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy their delicious food! A good number of local restaurants are offering take-away meals/delivery services, among them Restaurant Auguste, Bistro Kóz, La Table du Chef, Chardo, Maison Boire, Microbrasserie Le Siboire and Auberge Ayer’s Cliff - just some of the places from which you can order something tasty!

Plan a getaway to Les Côteaux Missisquoi

Imagine spending a weekend at an ecolodge in a stunning natural setting? Doesn’t that sound appealing? Les Côteaux Missisquoi in St-Étienne-de-Bolton offers you exactly that. The charming accommodations (there are a variety of styles) are in the heart of a forested area where you can go hiking, either within the property or along the nearby Sentiers de l’Estrie (a network of trails) - as well as cross-country skiing. It’s the perfect place to unwind…Don’t delay in making a reservation! A few places are still available for February and March.
