St.Sauveur, QC - Nov. 28, 2003

Here is a 3 words description of Skiing today at St.Sauveur: WET, RAIN and 3 trails (Red Bird, 70 and Nordique).

Lower pitches of 70 West and Nordique were closed. The mountain crew seemed to be working on these trails. On Lower Hill 70 West they were building jumps/rails. The HSQ was the only lift open.

The St.Sauveur area had received some heavy wet snow overnight. And for those with wishful thinking (like me)..... it rained all day (no snow). It started to Rain heavily at 1:00pm. Yes, there was the odd wet snow flakes toward 2:00, however it didn't last long. It was still raining when I left St.Sauveur at 5PM.

All things considered, the skiing was good. The place was virtually deserted (especially in the afternoon). The coverage on the bottom of 70 East (only place to reach the lift from 70West and Nordique) was getting more and more washed off. At 3:00, the snow was so wet that if you didn't carry good speed it would stop you.

ISH.... considering the weather, I thought that you would finally not go... <BR> <BR>Me, when I saw this morning that there was rain on the way and that it was closed this evening, I decided to delay my ski day (a chance that we didn't fixed us a meeting on the mountain !) <BR> <BR>I'm going to guess on sunday morning for a 4h of skiing before to be back on the schoolworks ! <BR> <BR>At Tremblant, this afternoon, it was some snow accumulating above 1400', so it's sure that southern, at MSS, it was raining... cause the summit is at 1400' !! <BR> <BR>Too bad that the St-Donat webcam is down, this evening <IMG SRC="" ALT=":("> I would like to know if it continued to fall in snow there !
