Boom! I woke to 15cm and it was still coming down hard. Yes it was cold (-20c) but when it snows its a good day. I managed to make it up to Fortune around 10am. Late maybe but I was hungover and got stuck behind a fleet of snow plows. There was still lots of powder to go around. First stop was Heggtveit. After some fun on Skyline including Swan Dive I went over to the valley. The T-bar was running so I gave McDonald and Alexander a try. If you wanted pristine powder in the valley, then those were the runs. By noon we had topped 20cm! The wind was a little fierce and lots of snow was drifting or getting blown into the woods but still what a killer morning. More snow is on the way later in the week and temperatures will rise. So get it while its good!
So much snow in the trees
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!
