Canadian Ski Marathon
Learn more about The Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) Event and Ski Categories (CSM-Taster, Tourer, Half-Marathon, and Coureur des Bois) that takes place in southwestern Québec. The Canadian Ski Marathon will be drawing for free entry into the Taster category!
The Canadian Ski Marathon is North America’s longest and oldest Nordic ski tour. This wonderful weekend in February can be enjoyed by all. Unlike most ski events, there are no winners or losers in the Canadian Ski Marathon: it is not a race. Skiers of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate and can do so safely. Tourers and families who ski less than the full distance make up about half the participants. Each skier can select his/her own level of challenge and try to achieve it. One can ski as little as 12 km or up to the maximum of 160 km over the weekend.
The CSM takes place in February on a trail that is only groomed once per year in the Lachute – Montebello – Mont Tremblant & Gatineau region, Québec.
