Hok skiing is an original way to explore the magical landscape of the valley in winter and provides an incredible feeling of floating lightly on the snow.
It's a must-do activity in Vallée Bras-du-Nord!
**Hok skiing is a sport that combines alpine skiing and snowshoeing. The skins under these skis allow you to move faster than with snowshoes and provide a good grip, especially going uphill. The gliding technique is not too complex to master and although a good physical shape allows a certain ease, you can slide without too much difficulty only after a few minutes. Balance and synchronization are put to the test, especially while going downhill, but the effort is rewarded to those who persevere.
Period of time:
Early January to late March / earlyApril, depending on the snow conditions
Hok skiing rentals includes:
The 125 cm Hok ski is the best substitute for snowshoeing. It is easy to control andto use for a skier with less skiing experience.
The 125 cm is more suitable for general use and as a replacement for snowshoes.
The 145 cm Hok ski has a little more of a “ski” feel and is more suitable for thosewho wish to use Hoks in a more top-down manner. The 145 cm has a little moreglide to it and offers more buoyancy for deep snow and taller skiers.
