Mont Tremblant - March 8, 2020


Recommended Posts

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.  Maybe all the March break holiday people left on Saturday? Anyway the snow was soft enough to hit the trees without fear and everything just felt right. Get up here as the next couple weeks maybe a melt down.

Wow that looks amazing! I was visiting family in Ottawa yesterday so no whooshing for me. I'll definitely be hitting up Tremblant closer to the end of the season for my favourite warm spring weather!

Thanks for the great photos of Tremblant. The last Sunday of March break is hit or miss in terms of lift lines, looks like a hit if the wait was less than 5 minutes. Hopefully the snow holds up for a few more outings this year. My front lawn is looking pretty ratty and bare. The mountains still look nice.

      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.

      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!
