The ski season ends

Looks like all the forecasted rain for the Easter long weekend is putting a damper on the chance for another ski weekend.  Camp Fortune has called it quits. Smugglers Notch has done the same.  No doubt most of the hills in the Ottawa/Gatineau area will or have officially closed.  Bit of a shame as there is still a lot of snow on the hills.

So far what I have seen for the Townships, Owl's Head & Bromont have called their seasons. With the impending weekend weather coming in the form of rain, they threw in the towel. I haven't heard about Orford however their plan was to close for the weekend and assess the mountain before making a decision on opening for one more day. That may have changed I don't know yet. Sutton still plans to go on weekends until May 4-5th weather and conditions pending.

A big change of open mountains from all the rain being received and forecasted. It would seem like last weekend was really the end. Indeed some mountains will continue for another week or two but in Quebec that will now number in the dozen or less.

Would be interesting to see if Mont Chilly does indeed open at some point this weekend. Definitely, an unexpected turn of events if they do.

I guess that marks the end of my ski season. Although it did wrap up at the end of December for me this year. Back to form next season that's a promise!

Who knows, my wife and I are hoping to do a one night stay in Montreal perhaps in May for a change of scenery. Maybe a quick stop to Sommet Saint-Sauveur, but who knows. For now, I consider myself done for the season.

Looking forward to some hiking in the spring and summer. Little Jean-Luc is eager to see some nature. :)

Mont Chilly is open this weekend.  The last in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.  Get out the rock skis. 

From their Facebook site:

Mont Chilly is open today 20 April 2019 from 11-4 for its final weekend. It will be a challenging ski for intermediate and above skill level. Lift tickets at $10 today? . See you on the mountain ?.

I am not 100% sure yet, but it looks like to me I'm done. I just can't accept the fact that my last day skiing was March 29th. Too early for my liking considering last year I was done May 27th. The past two out of three seasons ended in May. We will see what this week will hold and decide on where to go and who's left open if any.
