  1. Here is some info from Tremblant regarding the ski season: The health and well-being of Alterra Mountain Company guests, employees, and local communities has and will always be our company’s highest priority. Since last winter’s resort closures, our teams have been working to develop operating plans and protocols designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We are intently focused on complying with local, county, and state regulations and offering the best guest experience possible for the 20/21 season. The effectiveness of these plans will rely on your cooperation with our enforce
  2. @Après Skier The border crossing near Jay Peak is basically a hut, super fast and easy. I have a feeling with COVID though Canada is not going to open its border anytime soon. You may have to wait a extra year for your Quebec trip. If I could only ski three resorts on the list it would be Tremblant, Sutton and Massif. Lots of glade options at all three. The view of the St. Lawrence at Masstif is amazing.
  3. Its crazy how much nature as taken over in 11 years. Those trees growing out of the parking lot look like they are doing pretty well.
  4. @Shane Camp Fortune has still said nothing about the next season or when people can buy season passes. I'm afraid if we get a really warm/low snow season doubled with these COVID regulations you will see some hills close for good. Also Vermont hills must be really worried. If no Canadian's come or are even allowed to cross the border what will places like Jay Peak do?
  5. Just got this email from Mont Ste-Marie This is the first in the Ottawa/Gatineau area to address the next ski season. This seems like a logistical nightmare. Msg below: An Important Update for all Mont Ste-Marie Customers. Hello to all Friends of Mont Ste-Marie I hope everyone is having a fun and safe summer. It has been a busy summer at Mont Ste-Marie with everyone taking advantage of this fantastic weather to enjoy the trails, tennis, golf, and beach. Tomorrow will mark 4 months since we were shut down on March 15th. Since that time, our world has changed. What could no
  6. Looks like most camping and back country canoeing in parks is a go for June 5th in Quebec. The Verendrye Reserve will open then as well as the regional park at Lac Poisson Blanc. Ontario has extended their closures of camping and backcountry till June 14th though.
  7. Hey all @Ocean @Shane @Paul I'm holding out here in Ottawa. Working from home currently. It was a bummer to loose the spring skiing season! If fact Fortune still has enough of base to ski on. I'm starting to worry about next season now. I'm a little angry at Quebec closing it borders to people from Ontario as we own property in Quebec that we can't access. I get the idea to keep cottagers from using the stores in Quebec and maybe spreading the virus etc... but its going to have long term ramifications much like the referendum in the 90's did. Anyway take care everyone and stay s
  8. Kinda crazy. Why wouldn’t they just say the hill is open for touring while everything else is closed.
  9. St. Louis Moonstone is closing today. I think the ski season is done.
  10. @Shane Calabogie Peaks may still be open Monday if your feeling adventurous.
  11. Well I think the Quebec Government is about to shut everything down. https://postmedia.us.janrainsso.com/static/server.html?origin=https%3A%2F%2Fmontrealgazette.com%2Fnews%2Fquebec%2Fcovid-19-quebec-orders-bars-and-theatres-to-close-restaurants-to-limit-customers
  12. @Shane that includes the biggest resort in North America, Whistler Blackcomb. Fortune was pretty quiet for a Saturday but I never went over to the valley. Ski lessons were still going.
  13. Well Camp Fortune is still open and the spring conditions are great.
  14. Here’s more info about why Jay Peak is closing. Mainly because of Canadians have restricted access.
