Canadian Ski Marathon
Canadian Ski Marathon - from Mont-Tremblant to Lachute
(CSM) is North America’s longest /and oldest Nordic ski tour. Unlike most ski events, there are no winners or losers in the Canadian Ski Marathon: it is not a race. The event offers something for everyone, regardless of age, endurance or ability. 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. The trail winds through mostly privately owned land in the picturesque western Laurentian mountains. There is an over-night stop in Montebello, home of the famous Château Montebello, one of the largest log-built hotels in the world.
