Hi Ocean & Gordo, How do you like Racoon le Grizzly 99? It seems like it would be a great choice for my relaxed upper-intermediate style of west coast skiing. The only review I could find is this linked user review posted on Skipass. I also watched this linked interview with the company’s founder…. it seems like a great ski from a great company. I’m very interested in the 172cm Grizzly.

Ski areas elsewhere in Quebec are still operating however after this long weekend, the list should drop to a dozen or less.
