Another Promising Event in Quebec City
On December 22, 2016, the Fédération International de Ski officially announces that the final of the World Cup of cross-country skiing to be held initially in Tyumen in Russia will be held in Quebec City. In less than two months, the Gestev team has done an amazing job. As usual, the people of Quebec City quickly responded to the call for volunteers. Everything had to be done, from waxing rooms, to the communication infrastructure, to the athletes’ village. The people of Gestev who have an extensive experience in the field of winter sports activities, along with all the volunteers and Sponsors, are delivering an exceptional event.
The event will take place on the Plains of Abraham, where cross-country skier Alex Harvey, the world champion, will be the star of the event in his home town.
The snow conditions are extraordinary since it has fallen for 2 days, more than 50 cm of new snow. Competitors from all over the world were so happy to be able to ski on “real” snow.

The Red Bull Crashed Ice event is a wild experience.
The Horse Show of Lévis existed for 37 years. This year, the contest runs from 3 to 6 September 2015 and brings together the best athletes from the province of Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime Provinces in high level competitions.
As with Halfpipe, Big Air is a judged event. Individual riders approach a single jump high of 40 m and long of 110 m (also called a ‘Kicker’), perform tricks in the air, and land on a slope of around 30 degrees.
