Virtual St-Hubert snow bath Challenge

Take the Dare and Dive into the VIRTUAL ST-HUBERT SNOW BATH CHALLENGE! 

Bonhomme is looking for generous and courageous souls who are ready to face the cold and do the virtual St-Hubert Snow Bath with him! In exchange, he will make donations to help warm up two organizations in Quebec City. This year, Bonhomme’s Carnival will provide 100 hot meals to Le Pignon Bleu courtesy of St-Hubert, and 100 new sets of winter accessories to people from Lauberivière. He is also inviting all his Carnival visitors to contribute to these two organizations. 

Nothing scares you: take the Challenge and make a donation at the same time! Guaranteed fun and cool times, and you have a chance to win a night stay for two at the Quebec Hôtel Château Laurier, an access for two to the nordique Strøm spa  and the complete kit to concoct your Carnaval Ponce at home (including a bottle of Ungava).
