Mont Chilly - April 1, 2017
I have to say Mont Chilly is a hidden gem. Yes its rather far from Ottawa and it only has a T-bar for hill access but its a got a great vibe, friendly locals and some great terrain. I got to the hill around 10:30am after a scenic drive down 148. Watch for deer there were lots out in the farmer fields. Anyway the t-bar was just starting after purchasing the $20 lift ticket. Condition wise the snow was sticky from a couple cm's of fresh snow but as the day progressed the conditions got faster becoming typical spring skiing like. Now for the cool news, there is a new run at Chilly, #5. Its on the far side of #4. You have to traverse a trail at the top marked with pink flagging tap till it opens up to a steep glade run with a natural canyon. This will be killer tree run on powder day through mature hard wood. At the bottom it connects with #4 for the run out back to the T-bar. Fun times were had. Everyone should hit Mont Chilly at least once a season.
