Mont Cascades - January 1, 2016

Recommended Posts


New Year's Day on the Slopes of Mont-Cascades.

What's better than starting the year off on the slopes? Nothing really!

Having the day off, and our favorite place open on January 1st was a no brainer for us. We left home and got on location at Mont-Cascades right on opening hour. Got our season pass in 5 minutes and off we went!

Only the main trail was open, and was getting crowded more and more as the morning progressed.



At last, at noon sharp, the new quad chairlift opened. The reason that we still got our season pass at Mont-Cascades was finally available for us to try.

Located right in front of the main lodge, this new quad lift takes you a bit higher than the previous "old" 2 seater that was completely taken off the mountain. A smooth ride to the top, of course, it's new! Only thing we noticed is the hard seating, consisting of hard fabric with no cushion. Once on top, you will have the choice of 5 trails down from this new lift.

Ski conditions were good, all thanks to the big snow storm we got between Christmas and New Year's. Still, we do need more snow for the other trails to open.

The new Quad is a welcome initiative and we hope the mountain will keep improving like this to offer enough entertainment and value for our group of now seasoned snowboarders (4th year members). Maybe a new mountain side in the coming years?
