The Grand Défi des Glaces was held last Saturday, March 5, with teams of ice canoe racers leaving the Bassin Louise starting at 12:30 p.m. The weather was mild but visibility was poor due to the falling snow, which gradually turned to rain later in the afternoon.

According to their classification, the teams had to complete up to 10 crossings of the St. Lawrence River.
