Mont Ste Marie - February 4th, 2017

Recommended Posts

Well I finally made it up to Mont Ste Marie. Last year I skied on the closing day and it was blast.  Conditions this time were hard packed with a little dust on crust, not bad but we need some new snow.  I really think Mont Ste Marie is your best bang for your buck, 1200ft vertical, only a hour from Ottawa, short or zero lineups, and high speed lifts.  Also if you buy passes during the summer you can get lift tickets for like $30.  Anyway it was a great day, myself and a buddy skied all day from about 9:30 still last chair.  Everything was open with the exceptions of Crescendo (which we skied anyway), some sections of Toronade, and the glade run Sous-bois( which looked fine).  The Dustin Cook run was busy with racing but we did get on it in the afternoon. Formidable and Betsy were fun steeps as aways, I just wish they had a better run out so you don't have to scrub your speed for the sharp left turn onto Carrousal.  All in all a super fun day and great weather. Lets hope the mountain gets lots of snow next week!

Wow looks great. I've done almost all of the trails except Betsy and Formidable. How difficult are they compared to Dustin Cook and the others? What trails can they be compared to in the Gatineau region? Are they steeper than Hegg at Camp Fortune (another I haven't done)?
