No. The World Championships is free to spectators. All of the preliminary rounds (except freestyle) will be held in a public park (La Plaine des Jeux). Anyone can come check them out. The freestyle rounds (see schedule) and all finals will be held inside the amusement park (La Ronde) which normally charges an entry fee. However, if you are coming specifically to see the World Championships, you can get a free pass to La Ronde for the entire week -- to get your free pass, show up at late registration (even if you're just a spectator) or write Martin Côté. We have a limited supply of La Ronde passes, so competitors, staff, and their family get priority, and then it's first-come, first-served.
15-20 minute ride downtown. Approximately CDN $25 fixed fee. Not charged by the number of people in the taxi. The shuttle bus will drop you in front of the hotel (if requested) and costs about half the price of a taxi.
La Plaine des Jeux is a 5 minute walk from the Ile Ste. Hélène metro (subway) stop. There is a free shuttle bus to La Ronde from the Ile Ste. Hélène metro. After the freestyle events at La Ronde on Thursday, Friday, Saturday -- the bus returns to a different metro station which means one line to the hotel (2 blocks away). Use of the metro will probably take 45 - 60 minutes maximum in each direction, but a car is definitely more direct. By car in non-rush hours will take 20-30 minutes plus you have the cost of parking on the Island ($7/day although registered competitors and staff receive free parking) and the hotel ($9/day -- we may have a special arrangement for free parking for guests at the hotel). You should be able to find free overnight street parking near the hotel. Just remember to remove all items visible to possible thieves. Montreal is a very safe city if you use street sense, but we're known as the car theft capital.
CDN $1.75 per ticket -or 6 for $7.75 (1.29 1/6 cents each)
During the week until 12:45 a.m. and on weekends until 1:30 a.m. First train around 6:30 a.m. Trains run very frequently.
