SKI REPORTS & EXPERIENCES

Sommet Saint-Sauveur - April 9, 2019

SURPRISE!! It's unexpected powder day! I woke up far too early this morning and saw some fat flakes falling but kind of assumed it was just a tease. The snow continued falling and picked up in intensity. So much so that my partner called me from the office just to…

Mont Ste Marie - April 7, 2019

Made it up to Mont Ste Marie for one last spring rip. The hour drive north from Ottawa was an easy one, though many fields were full of deer. The coverage on the two mountains is still impressive with all of the 20 groomed trails still open. Even the off-piste…

Sommet Edelweiss - March 31, 2019

Well this weekend was almost a mirror of last weekend. Ottawa got mostly rain while the hills north of Gatineau got mostly snow. Camp Fortune got only 5cms but Mont Ste Marie got 25cms over two days! On Sunday, I made it as far Edelweiss as the roads were not…

Mont Sutton - March 29, 2019

I had based this trip on the long rage forecast about a week ago where it was supposed to be a mostly sunny day and mild, so I planned to have the day off. As the week progressed I watched the forecast deteriorate day by day to a mild day…

Mont Orford - March 24, 2019

I woke up early this morning to a beautiful sunny bluebird sky, so I made the decision to head out to Mont Orford. The mountain had received up to 40 centimetres of new snow Friday and into Saturday, so today was the day to go and see what they had.…

Mont Tremblant - March 22, 2019

Well I had an airmiles ticket for Tremblant burning in my pocket and figured Friday would be the day. The weather was looking a little suspect but while it rained in Ottawa, Tremblant got 15cms over night. Heading out in the morning it was raining pretty hard but just after…

Camp Fortune - March 13, 2019

Wow bonus powder day. I went up to Fortune right after work and it was snowing a little. By 4pm though it was a white out and would snow heavy for over three hours dropping 10cms. Every run was refreshed. We may be at peak snow pack. This may have…
