Video: Wade Simmons Rides Le Massif de Charlevoix with the New Generation

The Godfather of Freeride Wade Simmons, visited Le Massif de Charlevoix’s brand new bike park earlier this fall. He was invited to ride the mountain with two young riders of Quebec, Sean and Juliet Hughes. The connection was real between the new and the old generation in a magnificent playground.


Le Massif de Charlevoix opened in June 2021 its first bike park. Just over an hour east of Quebec City the new lift-accessed bike park offers the longest vertical drop of any resorts in Eastern Canada with breathtaking views over the St. Lawrence River.

 Some possibilities:

1) Water?
2) A book of every trail feature he's checked off over the years?
3) An extra layer?
4) A whole bunch of rolls of Wade Simmons signed toilet paper?
5) Lunch for three people?
6) Spare parts and tools?
7) Some of his various medals or awards, to show off to people he meets on the trail ("oh, yeah, I won Rampage once, see")?

I'm hoping it was only for 2, 4, and 7 personally.

 A Québec ils parlent français quand même.

There was a raid years ago called "Raid des Trappeurs" in this forest of Charlevoix.
