'La Glissade': Montreal Slide, Sledding, Tobogganing Sites

8 Best Places in Montreal for Winter Sledding

The ultimate playground come winter, snow hills perfect for sliding pop up all over Montreal as snowfalls multiply through the season. Most of those hills are small and don't have staff renting out sleds, toboggans, or crazy carpets. But most of the parks below rent out sliding equipment and all offer more sliding surfaces than your standard neighborhood mounds.

Note that park equipment rental offices, bathrooms and locker rooms are closed on both Christmas Day and New Year's Day in Montreal.
