Gradual opening of PASA networks
Dominique Hamel (PASA) – Dominique Hamel for PASA – Good news! As the trails have almost regained their summer appearance, they will be able to reopen, gradually, during the week.
Mont Loup-Garou Park: The park is only open for hiking at this time. The MARAIS, LAC RICHER, GRAND-JAUNE and ALEXIS trails remain closed (still too muddy).
Chantecler network: We hope to be able to open the Chantecler trails during the week for hiking and mountain biking.
Slopes 40-80: The 40-80 park trails have been open for 2 weeks already to the delight of cyclists.
Other PASA trails: Note that the trails of Mont Durocher and the Lac Millette sector are accessible for hiking.
Dominique Hamel (PASA) – Everyone in the outdoors knows Chap! Claude « Chap » Chapdelaine is an avid athlete. A fan of Nordic skiing and cycling, he has been involved for more than 14 years with Plein Air Sainte-Adèle. After 14 good years, Claude decided to leave the board of directors (CA) of PASA. Claude was instrumental for PASA by occupying practically all the functions within the board of directors. He was president twice.
Claude was one of the leaders of Plein Air Sainte-Adèle’s development plan and was able to put in place a concrete plan to ensure that Sainte-Adèle is recognized as an outdoor city where it is good to live, and this, nearby trails. Dedicated, enthusiastic, and authentic Claude allowed PASA to be what it has become today, a recognized organization in the outdoor world in Quebec.
Claude informs us that he will continue to be involved as a volunteer in issues that are close to his heart, namely the sustainability of the trails and mapping.
In addition, the Nordic ski trail at Parc du Mont Loup-Garou « CHAP » is in honor of Claude!
3 new trails at Parc du Mont Loup-Garou
Dominique Hamel (PASA) – The development of trails continues at Parc du Mont Loup-Garou. While the park was in spring rest, several volunteers worked hard to develop 3 new trails dedicated to hiking / snowshoeing. These paths allow the observation of gigantic rocks and offer completely new points of view. Intermediate level, they will be open very soon. Volunteers will complete the markup in the coming weeks.
Chore on May 8 at Val-David-Val-Morin Regional Park
On May 8, the Val-David-Val-Morin Regional Park Far-Hills sector invites users to participate in a family bubble with their tools in the maintenance and beautification of the trails, during the Corvée 2021.
During the day, you will be able to take part in picking up branches and debris from the trails, in clearing trails blocked by trees or in various other light work that will be assigned to you by bubble.
