  2. Blue Mountain in Collingwood Ontario did something special for their final day (Friday). Skiing until Midnight, served by the Silver Bullet chairlift. Likely the final day of night skiing for this season, at the one of the unlikeliest of places to be doing it so late. Well done!
  3. Calabogie have announced that today was their last day, as the Ontario shutdown comes into effect tomorrow. The Ontario Ski Areas association is now saying that all Ontario ski areas will close after today. So at the time I am posting, the ski season in Ottawa-Gatineau region has officially come to an end with Calabogie offering one final day under the sun. Ski areas elsewhere in Quebec are still operating however after this long weekend, the list should drop to a dozen or less.
  4. There is some discussion as to whether the nonessential order closes the remaining ski resorts or not. So far no confirmation, they are assuming they can operate as planned. I mean golf is staying open so....
  5. Mont Cascades called it Finished and Over. Calabogie Peaks is the last mountain standing in the region this year. Based on the base area webcam views, it looks to be quite decent and nicely covered the slopes.
  6. @Shane MSM just called it too. Calabogie may be the last hill standing.
  7. I’m eager to see what Mont Ste Marie does. Last year when they all closed they were the only one to say that they were taking exceptional measures to stay open, only later on to say they would be closing after all. If nothing changes drastically, Caabogie could be the last to close in the region this year if they manage to open.
  8. Camp Fortune just called it. The season is over because of the upgrade to red zone in the Gatineau area.
  9. Sommet Saint-Sauveur will begin in the next few weeks the construction of a new building for the members' lockers, the repair shop as well as the demo center of the Sommet Saint-Sauveur's Boutique. Demolition work on the existing building, which is located next to the Sommet Express lift, will begin on April 12, 2021. The new building will replace the old Customer Service building, where it is now located the 'Repair workshop. The new building will house the following services: Member's lockers Repair workshop Demo center Regarding the new members' lockers, these wil
  10. Whistler is dunzo for the season. The Province closed them at such short notice, many employees found out from their clients while teaching on the mountain. The CEO apparently had minutes notice prior to the Province's press conference. BC ordered them closed for three weeks, and Vail has apparently decided they will not reopen for the rest of the season, to focus on summer operations. Covid imported from non-essential travel (i.e. people from other geographic regions) is cited as the reason for the closure as Whistler (the village, not the community of employees) is experiencing a notable out
  11. Indeed. A real shame. Amazing it still stands yet it has been completely ruined. There are a few videos online of "kids" or "urban explorers" venturing inside by jumping the fence and what is shown is pretty bad. Graffiti, smashed walls, smashed windows, smashed elevators and lights, smashed....... Clearly someone still owns the land/property or I would expect it to have come down. Hopefully one day it does and makes way for a larger facility. The new one proposed above is a great start but hopefully it leads to more in the future. Be sure to take some Gravol if you watch the video.
  12. Indeed. Pakenham, Edelweiss, Vorlage and Chilly are closed for the season. No word yet on M’ont Cascades though.
  13. @Shane Cool! MSM did have a hotel decades ago. You can still see it when you go up the lift on the Cheval side. Totally rundown now and falling apart.
  14. @Shane MSM, Calabogie and Camp Fortune will be open for skiing over Easter. Mont Chilly has closed for the season.
  15. Since I posted earlier, Sommet Edelweiss has announced their season has come to an end. Interestingly, Mont Ste Marie says Closed until Sunday, however they are calling for 10-15mm 90% of rain....
  16. The recent warm and mild weather, combined with the current rainfall is surely going to being an early end to many ski areas in Quebec and Ontario. Already several have announced the end of season on their mountain. -Mount Pakenham -Val St-Come -Ski Saint Bruno Sadly, others will likely follow. Camp Fortune in the Outaouais is closed today and this weekend with a possible reopening for Easter weekend, weather permitting. The list will no doubt evolve quickly over the coming couple days.
  17. Haha I know but it sure does feel long. Definitely plays a factor in the small number that go, otherwise I could see it being much much busier.
  18. The Sainte Marie Hills is a $4.5M project that will have shovels hit the ground in April with an aggressive timeline to open by next Spring. It will be located on the land directly behind the main lodge, making it ski-in/ski-out. An après ski lounge and restaurant, private work and meeting spaces, rooftop patio with hot tubs, and more. It will be 15 studio units for short to medium stays, and a couple of two-bedroom rental apartments. https://obj.ca/article/real-estate/non-residential/45m-development-add-short-term-rentals-remote-workspaces-mont This is a very exciting developme
  19. It's not even a far drive, really, just it's a small mountain. We drive about the same distance to tremblant, no?
  20. It is unfortunate how far out Chilly is, although I do think that helps it keep its charm. A long drive and the reward you get when you arrive. Not a big mountain so smaller crowds keeps things from skiing out too quickly in the day. Saw your MSM report, looks amazing. Really holding up well despite the crazy weather swings recently.
  21. @Ocean Sadly no Chilly for me this year but I'm going to Mont Ste Marie today!
  22. @Gordo where has the time gone?! Did you get to Chilly yet? I started a new job and while I am getting in my token 1-8 runs/day most days, I haven't had time for much else!
  23. From their Facebook site: Mont Chilly February 18 at 8:05 PM · Hello Skiers and Riders!!! 🏂⛷ The time has finally come....... Mont Chilly will be opening for the first time this season on Saturday, February 20th. We are so excited to welcome everyone back for the 2021 ski season! We cannot thank all of our patrons enough for your patience and continued support in these very uncertain times. Although there have been some changes made here at Chilly due to the pandemic, our first priority remains offering the best experience possible to our guests. This season we will be o
  24. @Ocean Maybe next weekend for Chilly. Was at Fortune yesterday the conditions are very good, peak winter, hero snow.
  25. Good news! Gatineau moves to Orange next week and curfew shifts to 9:30, so skiing will be open until 8pm at Camp Fortune. No word from Edelweiss yet. @Gordo go get it!
  26. @Shane Mont Chilly opens this Saturday (Feb. 20th).
