  1. @Ocean I must have just missed you. We left around 8pm from the Skyline side. We did Heggtviet under moon as our last run! Great conditions.
  2. Well all the snow from the storm last Tuesday/Wednesday has held up great at Camp Fortune. The conditions are killer with nicely groomed snow, perfect for high angle carving at high speed. We arrived in time to get a bunch of runs on Heggtviet and Duffy before the sun went down just before 6. The bumps and cliff drops on Duffy were super fun. Hegg you could just rail on. Swan Dive was a little more of a technical ski as the bumps were huge and rather unforgiving. Pretty much all the other groomed trails were in excellent shape with the exception Bud Clark which was getting a little scrapped down to the base at the top section. Over all another great night of skiing with a full moon adding to the ambience. Oh and the Boreale IPA du Nord-Est at the bar is super tasty. Swan Dive Duffy in the sun.
  3. Camp Fortune this Tuesday right after work. @Ocean are you still in the Ottawa area?
  4. Mont Chilly is open Feb. 16th - 18th. Cash only. Expect loads of snow.
  5. Sommet Edelweiss - Has some good deals if you buy tickets on their website ahead of time.

Cash only though.
  6. The new glade off Paradise is now open at Fortune.
  7. Hey Shane The Carroussel glade would be the easiest and shortest. Vertigo and Deep Purple are double black but with so much fresh snow they are pretty easy to navigate. If it was more like hard packed moguls it might be kind of fast and somewhat dangerous. There are some cliff drops. Klotz is not a glade but the old tight twisty trail from a while back. Vertigo and Deep Purple feed into Klotz before you exit out onto Crescendo. Totally worth checking out.
  8. Welcome to the white room. 35cms of fresh light powder had fallen over night and it was still snowing when we arrived at Mont Ste Marie. Only a single run was groomed everything else was left as virgin powder. Total nirvana. The temperatures were mild at around -5c and hardly anyone had made the hour drive up from Ottawa. In fact the lifts started a little late because there was so much snow to shovel out from the entrances and exits of the quads. The new glades are killer and add so much to the terrain. Deep Purple and Vertigo fall through a steep pine forest before exiting at the bottom of Crescendo. You enter the three runs (also the old Klotz trail) from the left of Formidable. I'll let the photos tell the rest of the tale. My legs were jello by last chair. The best day of the year so far! Vertigo or maybe Deep Purple Carroussel Glades The entrance to Deep Purple involves a bit of trekking.
  9. The three double black runs going back to Vanier are now signed. There is loads of snow now. Access is left of Formidable. You need to traverse upward a bit to access Deep Purple and Vertigo though.
  10. Sorry Ocean I saved my legs for today. I was at MSM it was killer. 35cms of powder. Report to come.
  11. Mont Chilly is opening today Feb. 10th at 10am. Though next weekend will be a powder one.
  12. I’ll be going up to Camp Fortune Tuesday with a friend right after work.
  13. Hey Shane I checked out the snowshoe trails at Mont Cascade last Sunday. Great trails, great views and its free. I totally recommend them!
  14. Nice! and more snow is coming. 15cms + on Tuesday into Wednesday if all goes well.
  15. Wow that does look like an icefest. To bad you didn’t hit the hill on Monday when the conditions were still great. Also shouldn’t it be February 5th that you skied? LOL
