About the Canadian Ski Marathon:

The Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) is North America’s oldest XC cross country ski event. It has been held the 2nd weekend of February since 1967 and takes place in the beautiful Outaouais region of Quebec, centered in Montebello. Skiers of all ages and abilities can register for a variety of categories allowing them to ski 1 to 5 sections ranging from 12 to 25 km each day on classic groomed trails through a breathtaking winter landscape. This 160 km linear trail is unique and is only used once each year in its entirety! The CSM is not a timed race, but a personal ski adventure set in some of Canada’s most picturesque countryside. No matter the challenge you set for yourself, you are sure to find a friendly smile, or words of encouragement on the trail, as well as a warm mug of honey water, and supportive volunteers at the next checkpoint. There is something for everyone at the CSM!
