Mont Ste Marie - January 26, 2020


Recommended Posts

What a difference a couple weeks and a couple big snow falls make.  Mont Ste Marie was in peak "Winter Wonderland" mode on Sunday.  Over 10cms had fallen overnight and the snow would come down heavy the rest of the day.  The 1200ft vertical mountain was 100% open including all the glades.  The drive up was a little greasy and we got stuck behind a fleet of plows up oh boy was it worth it.  The steeps were deep and the glades were fresh.  What else can I say we got soaked and our legs were burned but we stayed till last chair. Get it while its good!

Oh man that looks sweet. Great report and pics of the pow we didn't get in the Townships. We got that the week before. It has been mild, and the odd sprinkle the last few days. Looks like the snow stayed north of the river. Higher elevations got some snow but in the lower valleys it was wet. What snow we did get in Sherbrooke was wet and sloppy. Someday I'll make it up there.

Hey Gordo,

Great post! Haven't been to Ste Marie in a while after spending some time out west. Looking to go this Friday as we got some decent pow forecasted. Anyway, wanted to know about the new glade runs and Sudermann. I think I read somewhere that the new glades on Cheval require a bit of uphill trekking? They look sick but Im on a board and want to know what Im getting into. And my understanding of Sudermann is that you go down and then some shuttle takes you back to the main area?

Insights greatly appreciated :)

@Steevin MSM hasn't had a shuttle bus for the Sudermann run in years. So you would either need a split board or a extra car at the bottom.  The glade off Caroussel would be pretty easy to enter by board. Use the second entrance rather then the higher one that would involve some trekking.  For the two steeper glades (Vertigo and Deep Purple) you would need to get off your board and walk about 100ft.  A drag but worth it on a powder day. 

You should also think about Tremblant as they have opened up a bunch of new glades in the last couple years that are all easy to access by snow board. 

Have fun!
