Well I had an airmiles ticket for Tremblant burning in my pocket and figured Friday would be the day. The weather was looking a little suspect but while it rained in Ottawa, Tremblant got 15cms over night. Heading out in the morning it was raining pretty hard but just after the turn off north on highway 323 it turned to snow and would snow for the rest of the day. We arrived just past 9 after a easy drive. What luck 15cms of semi-dense powder, no lines, no wind and temperatures around zero! We did some north side trails before hitting the Edge for its 9:30 opening. Conditions were amazing, so soft, so fun. Later in the day things would get a little more sticky as the temps rose especially on the bottom half of the trails. All 102 runs were open and we got our fill.
The new Lowell Thomas Express Quad is fast.
We hit a lot of untouched glades in the morning.

Wow bonus powder day. I went up to Fortune right after work and it was snowing a little. By 4pm though it was a white out and would snow heavy for over three hours dropping 10cms. Every run was refreshed. We may be at peak snow pack. This may have been my best night ski in a long while. Conditions we perfect, everything was open and zero crowds. Hero snow, enough said.
You better have googles.
Hegg was open till 7pm

This may have been a mistake. Chilly Poutine!
