Mont Ste Marie - April 7, 2019


Recommended Posts

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!20190407_105403_resized.thumb.jpg.9be12b4cf045313095053b44bf01900e.jpg

Really impressive the snowpack at this time of year. Winter keeps holding on, and we see quite a few mountains willing to push it yet another week or two. Good for them. And why not, some years it ends just a little too quickly, why not stretch it when we can!

Here's to another weekend or two in the region.
