      Soft turns and fog was name of the game on Friday.  We rolled into Tremblant around 9am after a easy two hour drive from Ottawa.  The place was busy with almost all the parking lots at capacity.  The temperature was around zero and with no wind the top third of the mountain was a total white out. First off the lineup at the gondola was insane because the lift was not moving.  We quickly moved over to the Flying Mile and then skied down to TGV to get to the top.  The gondola started back up soon after.  With 93 trails open there was plenty of options.  We started with Laurentienne on the Soleil side. The snow was nice and soft. Tremblant had gotten about 25cms over the week.  Options were soft groomers or natural bump runs.  The forgiving moguls on Jasey-Jay Anderson were really nice.  The fog was a bit of a bummer as you really couldn't rip the steep top pitches as the visibility was very limited.  Maybe if we knew the mountain better it wouldn't have mattered.  Regardless warm weather and no wind at Tremblant is a bit of a miracle.  Everyone seemed to be having a good time and even with the holiday masses there was room to move.  I really think Tremblant has stepped up their game in the last couple years. Maybe its the killer snow making but they seem to get terrain open faster then most resorts. I'll be back.

      A storm rolled in Monday night. I was night skiing at Camp Fortune and it hit hard around 8pm. By Tuesday morning, Tremblant was saying it had 17cm of fresh on the mountain.  We hit the road taking the 2 hour drive northeast. With over 2000ft vertical Tremblant is a leg burner when your used to smaller resorts in the Ottawa area.  Today would be a killer.  Loads of fresh lines, warm temperatures (-3c) and no crowds. In fact you could ski onto most lifts.  We parked at Soleil then double backed to the gondola. Our first run from the top was C.B.C and the new Taiga tree run.  After that we moved over to the Edge side and hit up the expanded glades off Reaction and Extension.  The conditions were amazing, so much fresh snow and so much terrain.  We checked out the new Lowell Thomas lift and the redone Le Grand Maniton while hopscotching around the mountain. After lunch the main runs were getting a little tracked but the moguls were soft and smeary. What a day!
