Lets go do some skiing!


Recommended Posts


The weather is cooling off, the frost is settling in over night, and a few flurries are falling every so often... winter is around the corner.

Lots of activity this weekend and heading into this week on the ski front. Killington has opened on Sunday (for members only) and Monday to the public, starting the ski season in the East. Monday also sees Sunday River in Maine opening.

Saturday night and Sunday night saw Mont Saint-Sauveur start their winter storm and snowmaking efforts, with a good effort. They are usually the first in Quebec and will be once again, as they will be opening from 12pm to 9:30pm today.

With 3 choices in the East available for lift-serviced skiing, the time is now to enjoy some early season snow and conditions.

For those farther away or stuck in the office or at school, I pulled some pictures from Mont Saint-Sauveur's facebook page to give you some eye candy.







Just a few days away from making a new record, and with snow in abundance, Mont Saint-Sauveur repeats the feat of being the first ski area in the province to open for the season! Since noon today, the mountain is in operation with the 70 Ouest trail fully opened for its first skiers and snowboarders!

The cold weather of the last two nights allowed the mountain to operate the snow guns for 16 hours, which is a record for this time of year. It is also the second earliest opening in the history of the mountain, the earliest having been October 18th, 2009.

Mont Saint-Sauveur has a snowmaking system among the most advanced and efficient in the industry, allowing it, for over 20 years, to be the first to open in the province and allowing it to offer the longest ski season in the east! This year, the group has invested nearly half a million dollars in all of its ski areas to improve its fleet of snow guns.

The opening of additional skiable terrain will depend on the weather over the next few days. Regular updates on conditions and open trails are available on the websitewww.montsaintsauveur.com well as on the Facebook page of the ski resort.
