Herman Jackrabbit Smith-Johannsen, introduced cross-country skiing to North America, opened up many of the Laurentian ski trails in Québec and lived to be 111 years old. He had an enduring spirit and enthusiasm, a great concern for humanity, native peoples and the natural environment. He advised, "That to understand the magnificence of creation one need only travel by ski through the beautiful forests of our land". We try to echo his spirit in our cabin-to-cabin ski tours.

For any person who desires such prizes, our ski trips bestow the gifts of silence and of scenic beauty. Snow from the Québec winter veils the forest canopy and transforms the trail into a noiseless route through tunnels of snow-laden branches. Insulated from all exterior sound; all one hears is the sliding of one's own skis in a white world against a bright blue sky. Periodically the trail leaves the forest and explores the open rolling terrain and frozen muskeg swamps of the Laurentian valleys. The views from the hilltops are superb. Tracks of wildlife are everywhere often telling a tale of a previous evening's meal - mice, squirrel, hare, fox, beaver, otter, porcupine, weasel, grouse, moose, deer and wolf.

Your trip guide is Bill Pollock. He has lots of "joie de vivre", a pack full of new games, gourmet trail recipes and is as much at home with young inexperienced skiers as he is with Canadian Ski Marathon "Coureur de Bois". As Bill says, "We can make the trip as easy or as difficult as you want."

The Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve has 18 cabins accommodating 4 to 15 persons on more than 100 km of old logging sleigh roads and specially cut ski trails. A variety of itineraries is possible. Daily distances involve 8 to 24 km of beginner-intermediate skiing. There are no long climbs or downhills, but where the trail does not follow old logging roads there are lots of short uphills, downhills (bumps) with the occasional sharp turn. Deer are often seen.
