    Quebec skiing this weekend

    For yesterday, I couldn't have skied earlier anyway, because I can't leave work before 5PM... At this hour, you can guess it was longer than 30-40 minutes........ let's say 25 minutes from here to Christophe's home (getting closer to the mountain) and after, it took about 45-50 minutes to get at...

    Quebec skiing this weekend

    Here is a video from our evening yesterday. It's more an interview with the marketing rep of the mountain and a popular actor of the province, but it shows well the kind of skiing that we had yesterday night. http://www.zoneskitv.com/view_video.php ... 51c22b7ea5

    Quebec skiing this weekend

    This wasn't that bad... The right decision was to ski it yesterday night. We knew there would be a minimal crowd and the conditions would be more interesting than during weekend, due to the large crowd. I say that, but in the same time, I see that it's -9c this morning in the north (very wet...

    Mont St-Bruno - (QC) - Oct 29, 2007

    Here are the proofs... BUT : note that it was almost impossible to ski, so this was a total lack of control, especially on my 1st run, because : 1) 1st run of the season 2) 2" of snow and rocks of 4" on the way 3) boots not enough tight 4) Fudge, I forgot to put a 2nd pair of socks, because...

    Mont St-Bruno - (QC) - Oct 29, 2007

    This evening was my first skiing for the 2007-08 ski season... I went to Mt St-Bruno, just a few kilometers away from Montreal. they blew much of snow this morning, so after leaving job, I went with my ski buddy at the mountain. It was passed 6PM when we reached the ski area, but the gates were...

    Monthly Ski Streaks Living in the East

    I remember your very first post on FTO Patrick. You said that my ski day with 4 mountains hiked (april 25, 2003, after season's end) was the crazyiest thing you ever heard from a skier of the East coast. Let me tell you that today, with your 25th ski month in a row (living on the east coast)...

    Le Massif, Quebec video

    It's a video produced by a renowned film productor in Quebec, but it was in 16/9 badly converted in 4/3 and the quality on Youtube is really really poor... I'm wondering how much this movie costed to them...

    Mt. Glenn - 2/24 and 2/25 (linked photos)

    For your information, the mountain has been sold yesterday, according to the NASJA journalist Roger Laroche. The new owner looks to tend to invest $$ to rebuild the ski area, changing the T2B chair, but keeping the mid mountain double chairlift + t-bar, but he will take 6 months to think how he...

    Mont Alta, QC - January 29, 2007

    The fact there is no ropes (lack of $ to purchase...) doesn't mean that 100% was open. Actually I think that 15 trails on 27 were open. All of the trails from Slalom Géant to Markat were closed on the top (Slalom Géant, Olympique, Rothwoll, Twist, Slalom, Surprenante, Fantastik, Marty, Papoos...

    Mont Alta, QC - January 29, 2007

    ????? Patrick skiing at Alta ?????? It's hard enough to believe ! Well, it's sure that you missed most of the terrain, due to the lack of snow... especially all of the woods, but personnaly, I think that for the value, it was better than Tremblant on monday ;) I hope you will ski it again...

    Alta , Quebec Jan. 28

    Yep, mondays also, as there is a group that comes every week on mondays for private lessons. So it's open with a huge big lack of crowds ;) you know my opinion on your question Patrick ;)

    Quebec opens...

    Hmm, at St-So, there is no lift to go uphill in late august / early september... it's a t-bar or rope tow that was open at Mt Edouard, with about 100' high open on full coverage, full width + snowpark... It's quite more like Woodbury than like St-Sauveur on Labor day weekend...

    Quebec opens...

    If we can talk about an "opening"... Mt Edouard, in Saguenay Lac St-Jean was open, this weekend, with the beginner hills, with the huge snow accumulations from 2 weeks ago. It was more a snowpark than some normal turns, but still. Actually, I'm wondering though if I'm going to consider it...

    Woodbury and the East opens !

    Good... lucky call, as I knew it was a chance I was taking this morning... I had to leave before 8h this morning, so when I saw that snow just after 7h this morning, I considered that there was some great chances..... ;) Thanks Patrick !

    Skiing in N.C. this weekend?

    Hmm, last sunday, it was written on their website that they were open on 1 trail, if I correctly remember. I was surprised to see them open that fast. On RSN/Snow, it was also written that the mountain was opening on Oct 29. I saw their website tonight and it looks strange, though as they're not...
