  1. Aujourd’hui
  2. @Ocean The plan is to get up to Sauveur Saturday morning. I saw pics of Sutton and it's getting pretty thin in places. Still skiable though. Owl's Head and Bromont are done. Orford, not sure yet. A buddy of mine went to Jay last weekend and he said it was pretty decent but melting quick. As for hiking, there are decent places to go to but from what I heard at Orford with the construction going on, you will only be able to access Giroux East for hiking. There is a lot of work to be done on Alfred Desrochers as they are installing snowmaking lines and that section would not be accessible from my understanding. If you are looking at some hiking, hit up the Sentiers de L'Estrie website. They have a decent network of trails accessible as a member or by purchasing daily passes.
  3. @Ocean was I technically skiing or snowshoeing?
  4. @Ocean I may hit St-Sauveur or Jay up in the next week or so while I wait for the ice to melt off the lakes so canoe camping season can begin
  5. @Shane I think I stopped to take just one, a pano at the top during the same party they broadcast on fb, it was the kind of day to not stop and take pictures in order to get the maximum number of runs I have photos from Saturday also, but none from Sunday as it was a stop on the way to Ottawa.
  6. Hey @Ocean did you get any pics of the closing of the Atomic? i saw the video on Facebook. End of an era. Let’s hope the new lift is as reliable as the Atomic was. Definitely a big change for the mountain. Eager to see the new finished lift.
  7. Props for touring up there at risk of a fine! I wonder if you can still ski down Edelweiss too!
  8. Also - Saint-Sauveur will likely have the La Plagne and L'Etoile chairs up and running - whether both chairs run will depend on how many people they anticipate. I'd expect it to go maybe thurs thru sunday. I'm going to try for Jay Peak or Killington this weekend if we have the budget.
  9. I can't believe you are all considering stopping at this point when there is still so much snow out there! Spent the last three days at St-Sauveur and even passed on Tremblant's last day for the better vibe at St-Sauveur's final day of the Atomic chair! @Shane St-Sauveur is looking good and they would still be almost fully open this weekend if they didn't have to start breaking down the Atomic chair. btw, they are selling some @ $500/chair, communicate with guest services for info. If you have time for a side trip in May, you can expect 70 Ouest and Nordic to be in great shape through May 20th or maybe beyond! @Gordo that goes for you too - St-Sauveur is not *that* far from Ottawa also there is still Jay Peak, Killington and Sugarbush. @Paul also you. Also I met a guy from Sherbrooke today who told me there's still good terrain to hike over there. come on guys, one month to go!
  10. Hier
  11. Here's the Last Chair video ceremony at Sommet Saint-Sauveur for the Atomic Express. sommet saint-sauveur - atomic.mp4 Video Source : Sommet Saint-Sauveur facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SommetSaintSauveur/videos/623970611361971/ ) Hoping that they share some photos and videos from now until the new chair is open, to show the progress of the removal and installation.
  12. Shane The groomed runs were a little firm, crusty and fast on the downhill. The snow in the woods though was very soft but not sticky.
  13. Nice trip Gordo. Looks like you had the place to yourself Definitely, a fun way to end the season. And you are right, still lots of snow. Was it sticky or relatively easy to handle? Thanks for sharing!
  14. La dernière semaine
  15. Yes Camp Fortune is closed for the season but there is still loads of snow on the hills even after the rainfest of the last couple days. Since I missed the last official weekend I figured I better get my fix. Taking my snowshoe skis which have a built in skin under foot I climbed Sparks on the Skyline line side. The main runs still have plenty of snow and even the north facing glades are skiable. I skinned to the top of Pineault then went down Paradis on the Meech side. A quarter of the way down I ducked into the new but unnamed glade that feeds down under the lift and onto North American. The trees were skiable and the snow was soft though there was loads of debris. I then climbed up North American back up to Sparks via the Meech Crossing. The final run was a quick blast down Sparks. Thanks for a great season and remember to buy your Fortune season pass before the end of the month. See you next year! Lots of streams in the woods. Sparks on the way up. North facing woods. South facing woods. Top of Pineault. Top of Meech. Paradis Entrance to the glade off Paradis. Under the Meech Lift. All done.
  16. I’m going to tour up Skyline at Camp Fortune tomorrow and check things out. It may be closed but there is still snow.
  17. I am not 100% sure yet, but it looks like to me I'm done. I just can't accept the fact that my last day skiing was March 29th. Too early for my liking considering last year I was done May 27th. The past two out of three seasons ended in May. We will see what this week will hold and decide on where to go and who's left open if any.
  18. Anyone still leaving open the possibility to ski again this season? Or are all finished up? I think I'm finished. Eager to hike.
  19. I just found this great video someone did of a Doppelmayr DT108 detachable grip, showing it entering and exiting the terminals from many different angles. Probably the best video out there. Very cool to watch.
  20. Mont Chilly is open this weekend. The last in the Ottawa/Gatineau area. Get out the rock skis. From their Facebook site: Mont Chilly is open today 20 April 2019 from 11-4 for its final weekend. It will be a challenging ski for intermediate and above skill level. Lift tickets at $10 today🎿 . See you on the mountain 🐱.
  21. Mount St Louis Moonstone has listed their Louis Express, a 1989 Poma quad detachable chairlift for sale. The mountain is predominantly served by high speed six-pack lifts. Not sure if a new lift will take its place or if it is no longer needed. https://www.saminfo.com/classifieds/advert/889-1989-poma-detachable-quad-chairlift
  22. Found some news on the Balsams project. The House and Senate approved a bill that will enable Less Otten to seek the funding he needs to move ahead with the project and expansion. This is a big step into making things a reality. Now he needs to get funding and there will be consultations with the communities. https://www.conwaydailysun.com/news/local/senate-passes-balsams-bill-sununu-says-he-ll-sign-it/article_14b42750-6227-11e9-ade7-17c4c89143df.html
  23. A big change of open mountains from all the rain being received and forecasted. It would seem like last weekend was really the end. Indeed some mountains will continue for another week or two but in Quebec that will now number in the dozen or less. Would be interesting to see if Mont Chilly does indeed open at some point this weekend. Definitely, an unexpected turn of events if they do. I guess that marks the end of my ski season. Although it did wrap up at the end of December for me this year. Back to form next season that's a promise! Who knows, my wife and I are hoping to do a one night stay in Montreal perhaps in May for a change of scenery. Maybe a quick stop to Sommet Saint-Sauveur, but who knows. For now, I consider myself done for the season. Looking forward to some hiking in the spring and summer. Little Jean-Luc is eager to see some nature.
  24. Mont Ste Marie called it. To much rain today. The Gatineau and Ottawa rivers may flood in the coming days.
  25. So far what I have seen for the Townships, Owl's Head & Bromont have called their seasons. With the impending weekend weather coming in the form of rain, they threw in the towel. I haven't heard about Orford however their plan was to close for the weekend and assess the mountain before making a decision on opening for one more day. That may have changed I don't know yet. Sutton still plans to go on weekends until May 4-5th weather and conditions pending.
  26. Looks like MSM will be open. From their Facebook account: Ski this weekend. We are OPEN this Easter Saturday and Sunday 9-4pm. Vanier Chairlift. This will be the final weekend. Special reduced lift ticket of $19 for under 18yrs and $34 for Adults. Passholders from other Areas $27. See you on the slopes.
  27. Small chance Mont Chilly may be open Saturday/Sunday. Not sure about MSM.
  28. Looks like all the forecasted rain for the Easter long weekend is putting a damper on the chance for another ski weekend. Camp Fortune has called it quits. Smugglers Notch has done the same. No doubt most of the hills in the Ottawa/Gatineau area will or have officially closed. Bit of a shame as there is still a lot of snow on the hills.
