Sommet Saint-Sauveur - Saturday November 10, 2018
This micro trip report is brought to you by a lack of sleep the previous night. Made it to the hill at 3:15 but I didn't read the fine print, closing was at 4pm! Just enough time for a few good runs on this snowy day with 20 cm of freshly fallen sticky powder. This is the first time so far that we had to wait in a line to get on the chair, there were a ton of people out. And while Nordique and the Rockstar park (top) were roped off, it wasn't stopping people from dipping under the line, with many fresh tracks covering the runs - definitely for rock skis. After the lift closed we headed over to Axis Boutique and met some familiar faces from AKAMP. The day was a tease and I'll be back tomorrow to enjoy more of it!
Nordique top is significantly improved over last week's bare grass.
L'Etoile brought a steady stream of skiers and riders up to the top of 70 Ouest.
It was pretty grey with a lot of blowing wind, but still not too cold.
The view looking towards the base and not yet open Atomic chair.
Ilana getting ready to shred!
