Wintertime in Québec

Winter... invented by the Québécois?

You’d almost think that winter was created here. As the snow blankets and transforms the landscape, a feeling of calm and serenity settles all around. But there’s more to it. For the Québécois, winter is not just a season, it’s a way of life in which every opportunity is taken to enjoy the outdoors.

After a day spent in the outdoors, the contrast inside is striking. Even a few snowflakes make their way close to the fireplace. The comforting heat draws everyone together to fondly recollect the day’s excursion.
