Curses @Gordo I wish I had seen this post early early Thursday! The night at Saint-Sauveur was sticky and wet powder landing on crust, and it was pretty great but a bit sticky in some spots and crusty in others where there had not been a lot of skiers/riders. I wonder if Tremblant got slightly colder conditions and less sticky snow? Today (well, Thursday evening) at Saint-Sauveur by contrast was reasonably good coverage and very slick as the temps dropped.

Crazy snow at Mont Ste Marie. Seemingly knocked out Hydro Quebec power at the top of the mountain which forced the mountain to not open in the morning on Sunday due to the lift not being able to operate. (Not sure how that makes sense though as the lift is a bottom drive and not top drive). Not sure if it ended up opening later on in the day though.

@Shane MSM never opened on Sunday.  They have had a few power/lift problems over the years I wonder what's up.  I went up to Camp Fortune on Sunday and the conditions were great.

Happy New Year!

Looks like Thursday may bring some good powder, not sure how much yet....

10-15cm possible Wednesday night/Thursday and also Saturday. Things are looking up!

Actually the conditions are pretty good right now in the Ottawa area. I was at Camp Fortune last night and the conditions were fantastic.

Yup so proud to have caught First Chair of the day....at Bromont Nuit Blanche at midnight. Pow time FTW!

Just about to get going today and trying to decide if I'll go to Bromont or Saint-Sauveur. I think it's finally time to take out my board!

      17cms of blower came in sideways Saturday night. The result was fantastic skiing Sunday at Camp Fortune. We managed to dig out and make it to the Skyline before 9am.  Camp Fortune had groomed on Saturday night so there was nice layer of light powder on top a firm base.  Conditions of course were excellent.  Smooth and smeary.  After a bunch of runs on Skyline we skated over to the valley and then hit the runs on Meech at 10ish.  The new glade was open off Paradis called La Cache Sous-Bois.  The glade runs from the right side of Paradis down and under the lift exiting on North America.  The run has a great pitch after the initial flat entrance with two main lines, one steeper and exiting father up the hill.   We spent most the morning on La Cache before heading back to Skyline.  The runs in the valley were also perfect but the place started to get busy with ski schools around 11am.  In fact the entire parking lot in the valley looked full by noon.  Skyline still had lots of spots though.  Heggtveit is still not open but the amount of snow that Fortune is blowing on it is pretty impressive. I suspect it will be open very soon. This is peak winter so get out and enjoy it!

      Wow what a killer weekend at Mont Tremblant! I drove up late Friday to meet some buddies from Toronto who had a hotel room a few minutes from the resort. Our expectations were not high as it was early season and there was the 24hr relay race on the south side. Tremblant brought the goods though.  They had just gotten 10cms and on Saturday they opened up "Le Edge" for the first time this season as well as the runs off the Expo Express Quad.  We had powder skiing on December 6th! along with 49 open runs on Saturday and 53 on Sunday.  The temperatures were hovering around -15c in the morning and -8c in the afternoon. Lots of snowmaking was happening.  Anyway after railing some groomers on the North Side we got in a couple powder runs going down Fuddle Duddle and Windigo then hit Le Edge for more all natural tree runs.  We stayed on the Edge side for a while before heading back to the south side for some afternoon groomer action.  Sunday was a repeat with lots of powder stashes left in the woods.  You really couldn't have asked for more and the weather was pretty much perfect for the huge relay event that involved skiing, running and walking for 24hrs.  Tremblant even had Beauvallon light all the way down for the teams skiing after dark. What a crazy event.  Well done Tremblant. 

      Going up! Its odd to see the lake unfrozen.

      Perfect groomers

      This was the only lineup of the day. Waiting for Le Edge to open. 


      So fresh, we only hit a couple logs.

      Note the 24hr relay.
