Mont Cascades - December 30, 2015

Recommended Posts


Skiing at Mont Cascades has improved dramatically over the last few days thanks to the first major storm, and cooler temperatures which have allowed the snow guns to run around the clock. Cascades seems to be taking advantage of the cooler weather with snow guns running throughout the day today on Promenade and a number of other runs.

Skiing is still limited mainly to Promenade, although they have been able to widen it up in places. I skied most of the day and found the conditions and snow to be in good shape throughout the day despite the heavy traffic from the racing club, Nancy green program and general public. The lower half of Alliance should be open very soon, lots of folks were venturing over there today making the best of the powder. Other runs which opened today were Traverse, Link and the magic carpet. Pretty sure they are working on getting Alouette open so they can start up the new chairlift.

Visibility was somewhat limited today with some fog but that didn't seem to stop people from coming out. With only the one lift running there were times during the day where there was a lineup for the lift. Lift lines seemed well organized and chairs were bare of snow (Always a plus !!!). Staff in the cafeteria were friendly and helpful.

From their website they will be open the following hours in the coming days:
Dec 31st 9-4  ;  Jan 1st 9-4   ;   Jan 2nd 9-10   ;   Jan 3rd 9-9   ;   Jan 4th 9-10

Temperature: -7C, Overcast

Wow the mountain is really turning white very fast, thank god for the snow storm!

Even though the snow is in the air you can still see where the base of the new Quad chairlift is in relation to the main chalet. While some people like the location and others don't, I am on the side of liking it. Much more convenient when you leave the chalet, and gives a more interesting ride up the mountain (while passing over the water slides).

Lets hope Alouette opens up soon so we can experience this new lift.

Thanks for sharing your ski outing and welcome to SlopeEdge Adrian.
