Surely one of the most beautiful places in the world to skate, members of the general public are welcome to skate free of charge on the giant skating oval just in front of the Jeanne d'Arc Garden when races are not in progress. There is a large tent where you can put on your skates and keep warm.

The Pentathlon des neiges or Snow Pentathlon, regarded as the "biggest winter event in Canada" for the past two consecutive years, has hit Quebec City again.
