Canadian Ski Marathon
Founded in 1966, the Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) is North America’s oldest XC ski event. Held the 2nd weekend in February since 1967, it takes place in the beautiful Outaouais region, centered on Montebello.
Skiers of all ages and abilities can register for distances ranging from 12 km to 160km on classic groomed trails through a breathtaking winter landscape!
