Active Nature - En vedette Cross-country skiing and well-being in the Massif du Sud Regional Park!

Je pense sincèrement que ce qui me rend le plus heureuse l’hiver, c’est de faire du ski de fond. Vous pouvez en parler avec mon copain. Il commence à avoir sérieusement hâte que la neige fonde. Pour vrai, chaque semaine, je ressens le besoin de mettre mes skis, peu importe la météo, les conditions de glisse, le lieu et la durée. C’est essentiel à mon bien-être physique, mais encore plus mental. Je n’ai pas besoin d’aller vite, j’ai seulement besoin de prendre l’air.
