  1. Conditions continue to look amazing. Swan Dive is the only trail at CF that I've never done. I'm personally not big on steep narrow trails and this one is a bit more adventurous than my liking. Nice skyline photos near the end. Thanks for your report.
  2. The new glades on Cheval Blanc look incredible. How would you rank them difficulty wise? And which would be the easiest to hardest? Definitely, want to check these out. Hopefully I can get back on snow before the glades close... we will see.
  3. Jeez, that looks incredibly icy. I would have probably done one or two runs as well and then called it quits. I love skiing but when the weather is bad or its the end of the season with only one trail open, I usually go early and finish quick before there are too many people. As Paul said above, not worth the risk getting injured and sidelined. Interesting choice on the part of Edelweiss to be open like that though. I remember a year my friend and I had gone to Edelweiss and by the time we arrived it was heavy rain. They were open but we were the only two skiing. They kept the Edelbahn Express running for us, and stopped it as soon as we called it a day.... completely soaked. An interesting experience for sure, but not one I would repeat.
  4. Lots of creamy snow. Conditions continue to impress. Hopefully the wild weather swings settle down for the second half of the ski season so we can fully enjoy it. Thanks for your report Ocean.

    Incoming weather!

    How is Titus? I know it isn't massive but how does it compare to what we have around here? Looks similar in size and offering to Camp Fortune.
  6. Bromont have shared an update on their Facebook page. Update on the status of the Express du Village We would like to begin by thanking you for your patience and understanding. Our goal is to get everything running smoothly as soon as possible. The lift suffered technical difficulties that had to be immediately addressed causing the delay. The installation process includes a diagnostic period that our employees are working at and will need its fair share of efforts. The manufacturer Doppelmayr is on site day and night to remedy the situation. Thank you for your valuable collaboration and we apologize for any inconveniences that this situation may have caused. Good skiing.
  7. Another outage today for the Outaouais region, also again affecting Edelweiss. https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/more-than-7000-without-power-in-outaouais

  9. Well this is big news. It was only a matter of time as it had been stated that this was the intention for a while now... looks like the day has finally come. Hoping that whatever happens and whomever buys it, keeps accepting the Canadian Dollar at par, and that the prices do not go up (atleast not by much). While I do love the changes that were made over the past 10 years, it was mostly around the base of the mountain, rather than on mountain. New lifts, more trails, would be nice. Detachable lifts for the Jet and the Bonaventure would be very welcome additions. Definitely a story to keep following.
  10. Haha. I think that's the same trail I had previously asked you about. I guess it's high time I get on it myself! Thanks.
  11. The conditions look so fantastic. A little disappointed I'm not out there enjoying them. Baby is coming very soon, and working to get over a cold. Your pictures definitely help! Where was the picture just below the Pineault Quad taken? Is that the glade off of Marshall or someplace else?
  12. Seems like the new lift has been running into some issues. Again it is closed now for the past couple days. Not sure what is going on, hoping they can get things working at 100% soon. It doesn't need to be said that this is the most advanced lift in Quebec, and as such it is a complicated piece of machinery and pieces that operate at a very specific timing and speed. I don't doubt it will be reliable very soon, but it is something that takes time to achieve.
  13. Thanks for that Gordo. The lift reopened on Thursday and all is back to normal now.
  14. Seems like a power outage in West Quebec today from around 10:20am. There is a news story in the Ottawa Citizen about how some skiers were stuck briefly on chairlifts as a result. Hydro Quebec says it is due to an "Accident / Incident" and should be restored around 1:15pm. https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/skiers-briefly-stuck-as-power-outages-strikes-west-quebec Funny part is the photo used is of the Edelbahn Express at Edelweiss. Saw that in the news feed and that peaked my attention to read more.
