Laurentian Quebec Snow Report 2018/19

Sun Dec 30, 2018 6:35 pm

The laurentian region did not pick up the November snow like Northern Vermont but they did pick up the rain. December had record rain and freezing rain resulting in the snow pack being about 8 to 12 inches of granular ice. About half the trails are still closed and the ones that are open are groomed granular . Spent yesterday hiking the icy granular with spikes and today north of Ottawa on a Fat Bike making icy climbs and icy descents . After experiencing the terrain first hand ,it is going to take a successive amounts of snow falls to fix things and it goes without saying , it has to stop raining all the time.

It looks like things have improved markedly north of the border.

Yes , especially areas north of the St. Lawrence as to the south it rained but areas north received a few snow falls adding up to almost a foot on top of the frozen ice base. Enough snow to make a difference. Attached few pics . Base about 40 cm's so not deep.
