  1. Hey all @Ocean @Shane @Paul I'm holding out here in Ottawa. Working from home currently. It was a bummer to loose the spring skiing season! If fact Fortune still has enough of base to ski on. I'm starting to worry about next season now. I'm a little angry at Quebec closing it borders to people from Ontario as we own property in Quebec that we can't access. I get the idea to keep cottagers from using the stores in Quebec and maybe spreading the virus etc... but its going to have long term ramifications much like the referendum in the 90's did. Anyway take care everyone and stay safe.
  2. Kinda crazy. Why wouldn’t they just say the hill is open for touring while everything else is closed.
  3. St. Louis Moonstone is closing today. I think the ski season is done.
  4. @Shane Calabogie Peaks may still be open Monday if your feeling adventurous.
  5. Well I think the Quebec Government is about to shut everything down. https://postmedia.us.janrainsso.com/static/server.html?origin=https%3A%2F%2Fmontrealgazette.com%2Fnews%2Fquebec%2Fcovid-19-quebec-orders-bars-and-theatres-to-close-restaurants-to-limit-customers
  6. @Shane that includes the biggest resort in North America, Whistler Blackcomb. Fortune was pretty quiet for a Saturday but I never went over to the valley. Ski lessons were still going.
  7. Well Camp Fortune is still open and the spring conditions are great.
  8. Here’s more info about why Jay Peak is closing. Mainly because of Canadians have restricted access.
  9. @Paul I think winter is going to make a come back next week. Don't count the season over let. The virus factor is still a worry though.
  10. Camp Fortune has cancelled the Apres Ski party in the bar on Saturday: ATTENTION: 1920-2020: Celebrating 100 yrs All outdoor activities planned for our 100th celebration on Saturday are going ahead as planned. The après-ski concert in the bar featuring Mackenzie Rhythm Section has been cancelled.
  11. All seems a little crazy to me. Skiers are pretty covered up and outside! What about movie theatres? they are still open.
  12. Sunday and the last day of March Break in Quebec. The time change was painful but the mountain was perfect with all 102 trails open. Temperatures in the morning were around -3c and by the afternoon +3c. Bonus, zero wind. We rolled in around 8:30am and stayed till last chair. The day was that good with perfect groomers or moguls and trees galore. The crazy thing is we though it would be super busy, we were wrong. Most lines were less then a couple minutes. Maybe all the March break holiday people left on Saturday? Anyway the snow was soft enough to hit the trees without fear and everything just felt right. Get up here as the next couple weeks maybe a melt down. On the edge of Expo Haute Tension mogulfest Top of Le Edge Me somewhere The Taiga glade is vast. Wow
  13. Looks like a great day @Paul, Did you hit any of the glades?
  14. @Ocean I’m thinking Mount Titus or Mont Chilly Saturday.
