Well I think the last time I was at Mont Cascades was like in grade 9! So with a few hours to spare on Saturday morning I decided to check it out. Having totally forgotten the lay out I parked at the first lot. I arrived around 9:30 and overnight we had gotten a light dusting of wet snow, maybe 2cms. Anyway I went into the chalet to get my lift ticket. The girl at the small concession stand informed me that they don’t sell tickets here and I would have to drive over to the main lot. No thanks my ski boots were already on so I just got on the lift. I took the old triple to the top and skied over to the other side to buy a three hour ticket. The conditions were decent considering the terrible weather we have had for almost three weeks. All the groomed runs were well covered and the bit of fresh stuff helped a lot. I skied pretty much everything that was open sticking mostly to the steeper side with Competition, Exhibition and the blue run Hogan that runs and twists through the woods on the far side. The place was pretty quiet with almost no lines and the new east quad is quick. Not a bad little resort but maybe a tad tame for my liking. Ski on! Nice view of the Gatineau river and Camp Fortune in the distance. Kinda weird going up the lift with water slides all around you. A bit of fresh stuff under your skis. I like Competition.
