Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Published on Mar 21, 2023
The days are getting longer and the mercury is rising! This weekend offers you endless opportunities to get in some final winter activities and cultural events, before turning your minds to other things…
Given that the weather is getting milder and it’s light until later in the day, conditions are ideal for continuing to enjoy your favourite snow sports, whether that be alpine hiking, snowboarding or downhill skiing. Our four ski stations with their groomed trails and challenging glade runs, are still open, so for a last blast, check out our list of 38 things to do at our resorts.
See how many winter activities you can pack in before the end of the season…
Waterloo ceramist Coralie Huckel (a participant in our Artisans des Cantons series, creates unique artwork fashioned from clay, ranging from everyday objects such as bowls, dishes and vases, to detailed, delicate jewelry. She loves to welcome visitors and they can stay overnight in the Alcôve des Céramistes, a cozy loft situated above her studio, housed in a heritage home – an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area.
Although there’s still plenty of snow on the ground, our migrating birds are beginning to come back, heralding the start of spring! We asked ornithologist Bernard Héraud to suggest the five best places to go birdwatching in the region this spring. Without further ado, here they are!
Tapping maple trees to extract their sweet liquid goes back eons! This weekend, the Merry House (now a local museum in downtown Magog) is running an event entitled Les Merry sucrés, based on the know-how handed down to us by Quebec’s aboriginal peoples. This “sweet” event features games, contests, tastings and activities associated with the traditional, sugaring-off season.
And if you believe your family has the best baked bean recipe in Magog (or maybe even in the region!) why not take part in the Les meilleures bines de Magog contest? Bring your beans in a Mason jar, so that a jury can taste your offerings and decide who indeed deserves to be named the “master bean maker”!
