Snow Park

The territory is located on the west coast of Ungava Bay, at the mouth of Arnaud River and Payne Bay. Kangirsuk lies 110 kilometres south of Quaqtaq and 90 kilometres north of Aupaluk. Kangirsuk is on the 61st parallel. Its wide open space, open to western wind and accessible mountains makes it a Paradise for Paraski. The Payne river in front of Kangirsuk is frozen solid from January until the end of May. Over the past four years, we have been able to paraski across Payne most of the time. Some sections end up being as flat as a pool table, making it an ideal place for great speed runs. The 5km+ wide river and low plateau make it a very windy area. (South and west winds are the best.) You can paraski across Payne to go to the other side for one-day excursions. You can also paraski on Post Lake on the mountain near the airport when the ice conditions are not ideal or when there are northern winds.
