The Laurentian Traveller is offered only on Saturdays.
For Sunday programming, please see the Gatineau Traveller.

In 2020, for the first-time ever, the Laurentian Traveller features six of its eight day trips to Laurentian hills including Mt Tremblant, Sommet St-Sauveur, Sommet Olympia, La Reserve and Mt Blanc (twice). Plus the Laurentian Traveller also features two Gatineau outings, both to Mt Ste-Marie. An exceptional variety of terrain! Full-day lessons are included for all beginners and those in grades 1 through 4 or 5. For others, half-day lessons by Snowhawks Instructors focus on refinement of technique, including moguls, dynamic parallel and short radius for those at the expert skiing level. Fast-track-to-parallel program for beginners and novices. Snowboarders learn the basics as well as advanced skills such as carving, freestyle and snowboard park. Specialty groups offered include Ski & Snowboard Combo, Freestyle and Instructor-In-Training. Plenty of special events, such as tubing, synchro, a fun race, and our pizza party round out the program.

NEW for 2020: A no-lesson option is available for those in grades 10 and up. See Snowhawks Express program for details.

Instructor-In-Training (IIT)

For advanced skiers and snowboarders aged 14 and up, this group will prepare those interested in becoming nationally certified instructors. Many successful “graduates” are now teaching with Snowhawks, and at mountains across Canada.


Special freestyle groups for Laurentian Traveller skiers or snowboarders focus on skill and safety in the “park” and the “bumps”.
