Mont Royal Park (Cross-country ski trail #2), Montréal, Québec, Canada in February 2019 – by Cristal Duhaime

“Mont Royal is the city’s main park and namesake – we refer to it as ‘The Mountain’ but it’s more of a medium-sized hill. It overlooks the city, there’s a cross at the very top of it that lights up at night. (When Leonard Cohen died they projected his lyrics there).

In the winter, you can go into the woods at Mont Royal and fool yourself into feeling like you have the world to yourself. I recorded this in February 2019 on a pause from cross-country skiing on the #2 trail. Two friends skiing together pass by, chatting in French about the usual things.”
