  1. @Ocean was I technically skiing or snowshoeing?
  2. @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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I’m going to tour up Skyline at Camp Fortune tomorrow and check things out. It may be closed but there is still snow.
  6. 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 🐱.
  7. Mont Ste Marie called it. To much rain today. The Gatineau and Ottawa rivers may flood in the coming days.
  8. 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.
  9. Small chance Mont Chilly may be open Saturday/Sunday. Not sure about MSM.
  10. 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.
  11. The ski season that just keeps going and going... Massif just got 45cms of snow over the 36 hours! Ottawa got 8cm yesterday. Gatineau hills and the Pontiac around 10cm.
  12. Will its snowing pretty good right now with 15cms expected in the Cantley and Mont Ste Marie areas today. I think the skiing will be pretty good this weekend.
  13. 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 runs had good coverage but they were mostly closed. The snow was just to sticky in the glades. The groomed trails ripped though. The snow was soft and fast in the morning then became your typical spring skiing conditions in the afternoon. I missed the sun of Saturday but with no wind and temperatures just over zero I couldn't complain. Dustin Cook and Formidable were the best bets on the Cheval Blanc side. On Vanier Serenade and Tornade were great cruisers. We ducked into the glades on Carroussel but the snow was so sticky that you had to hop turn to get through the trees, not recommended. Had lunch at the bar where the food and service is always excellent. Ripped down Cheval for a few more hours in the afternoon till we'd had our fill. What a great season. MSM plans to be open April 12-14th and maybe even Easter weekend. Looks like snow is on tap for Tuesday!
  14. Sounds like the mountain was sold in February. Unfortunately it’s not going to be a commercial ski hill but rather a private getaway for the buyer. Kinda sad as I always thought it had great potential. The Barry’s Bay area is only going to grow in the coming years.

  15. Spring Skiing at Chilly From their Facebook site: Mont Chilly will be open April 6 + 7, 2019. Come check out some awesome spring skiing. open 10 to 4. Cash only. The kitchen is closed but we offer snacks and drinks. A bbq is available on the deck. See you on the mountain.
