Sunday and the last day of March Break in Quebec. The time change was painful but the mountain was perfect with all 102 trails open. Temperatures in the morning were around -3c and by the afternoon +3c. Bonus, zero wind. We rolled in around 8:30am and stayed till last chair. The day was that good with perfect groomers or moguls and trees galore. The crazy thing is we though it would be super busy, we were wrong. Most lines were less then a couple minutes.

Being a little sore from a powderfest yesterday I didn't roll into the parking lot at Skyline till 10am. The sun was out and the place didn't look busy at all.

Having totally forgotten the lay out I parked at the first lot. I arrived around 9:30 and overnight we had gotten a light dusting of wet snow, maybe 2cms. Anyway I went into the chalet to get my lift ticket. The girl at the small concession stand informed me that they don’t sell tickets here and I would have to drive over to the main lot. No thanks my ski boots were already on so I just got on the lift. I took the old triple to the top and skied
