You got it just above with my post. That is it. That day was going to be the last liftserved ski day in the Laurentians, Quebec and Eastern Canada.

I still believe that they pull the plug too soon. Warm rain did some damage, but still think they might have been able to pull it off for one last weekend.

Hey Patrick , thanks for taking over the Laurentian post . First time checking in as my bike team has canceled the ride today along the border due to rain and yes snow in the higher elevations of NY /VT . Not like us skiers who go out in everything :-D . Heard that snow was accumulating above 2000'

Reality is back as the last 2 days have been nothing but low hanging clouds , fog , mist and rain . The snow pack is currently wet saturated snow with temps above the freezing point for over 24 hours . The best thing for the natural snow trails would be to stay off them and let them drain out prior to the inevitable freeze up which should take place within the next 24 hours. Upcoming weekend looks questionable as remains to be seen if any snow falls during the freeze up.


Thanks to this update, Is it possible to ski there by next month? :roll:

Avila is connected to MSS. Possible to ski? I heard that someone on ZSki made a turn or two last weekend on the remains of the Akamp snowcamp camp held from June 26 to July 1. Here is what it looked like on June 30/July 1.

Avila QC : June 30/July 1, 2013 : Turns under the influence of prescription drugs!!!

I was wondering when Patrick was going to get a link here to the Mt. Avila reports. In a few days I might have done it for him. :-P Another close call for The Streak.

As stated in the TR, health has been an ongoing issue and priority for myself. August is going to make or break it, unless I get better very quick. If I feel up to it, it might come down to one weekend trip à la October 2007 for a return visit to a place which hasn't been planed since that initial family vacation back in Aug/Sept 2006. I'm seeing the doctor again next week.

The initial goad was 12...I'm up to 94. However I've had a few new goals inside the streak which I would like to reach before maybe stopping it.
