Some newcomers to Canada got to experience one of the country’s most popular outdoor sports on Saturday.


“At first I felt a little bit nervous and afraid because it was my first time,” said Hanan Saad. “I saw the slopes. Oh my god!”

They were held at Ski Chantecler in Sainte-Adele.


“I want them to embrace winter,” said Sandy Wolofsky of OuiCanSki. “I want them to feel good about being here in Quebec and have a sense of belonging.”
