1. DON’T MISS: LIGHT UP THE NIGHT

Light Therapy | Place des Festivals in the Quartier des Spectacles | Until January 31

There is light at the end of the long, wintry tunnel. And see-saws!

Impulse is an interactive work of art comprised of see-saws of various sizes that light up and play music when you use them. Grab a friend and jump on. The seesaws, fitted with LED lights and speakers, produce a series of beautiful sound when they’re activated.

2. OLYMPIC STADIUM’S WINTER SHINDIG

Mammoth Village | Olympic Stadium’s Esplanade Financière Sun Life | Every Thursday to Sunday until March 13

Skip the slopes and dive right into a one-of-a-kind “après-ski” atmosphere at the Olympic Park.

Every weekend, guest deejays turn up the music while revellers skate around on an NHL-sized rink and glide down an 18-metre long tube slide. Indulge and warm up with delicious snacks.
