More today from Jacques Cartier Park and Winterlude. These giant mounds of snow are sculpted to include slide runs, with water used as needed to make them more slippery. While I didn't go down this year, I have in the past, and it's a lot of fun on one of these tubes.
Finished with one slide area, I proceeded to the next one, approaching it first from the left side, where visitors were ascending the slope in the middle, and making use of slide lanes over on the left, at least on this day. This one takes particular advantage of the gradual slope in the park that leads down towards the river shoreline. I have more from the park to come.
You should have joined them for a slide.ReplyDelete
Looks like fun! Cold, but fun.ReplyDelete
A lot of people having fun in the snow.ReplyDelete

We have a small local hill which we used to take the kids to about once a winter on snow days. That's when we had them more, so we missed last year and so far this year. I have wanted to go down once in my 70s just to have done it, but it's a no go so far.ReplyDelete
Such a great slide!ReplyDelete
Hello, the slide looks like a fun time. I am sure the kiddies love it there, I would try it again if I was younger. Wishing you a happy day!ReplyDelete
What a lot of snow you have! Imagine making hills and slides out of it! So you Canadians prove you have imaginations to match a fun spirit of play!ReplyDelete
What fun! I wish I could join you all. :-)ReplyDelete
As Canadians, we can't seem to get enough sliding in the snow! What fun!ReplyDelete

I do have to admit that as a kid I did love sledding down hills like that. That was back when I could tolerate the cold.ReplyDelete
I haven't been sliding for forever it seems. Ah, those were the days!ReplyDelete

I think I would have more fun watching than sliding!ReplyDelete
I think it would be great fun!ReplyDelete
That is wonderful, must be great fun.ReplyDelete
Looking at it makes me go back to my childhood. Although our slide tubes were much lower and shorter ... ;-)
What fun. The one thing I liked about the cold. When the snow was deep enough we could sled down the one field. Tweeted.ReplyDelete
Sliding was always fun when I was younger. Great shots, William.ReplyDelete
Such a cool place! So much fun!ReplyDelete
When I was a kid there was snow, too (no kidding!). It was fun!ReplyDelete
@Sharon: I love the cold.ReplyDelete
@Jeanie: it's a lot of fun.
@Padre: thank you!
@Lois: it's fun either way.

@Mari: thank you.
@Klara: that it is.
