Ski Reports

Sommet Saint-Sauveur, April 15, 2018 - aka mission aborted

Sunday morning we woke up at the Cap Tremblant. I'd stayed up late after a night of puzzling over a 500 piece puzzle with many similar looking pieces. I already didn't have high hopes for a good day at Tremblant given Saturday's conditions, and the exceptionally crisp air confirmed my idea that it might be a better day to ski at Sauveur. After a delicious brunch of mushroom, onion, yellow pepper and swiss cheese omelettes, we packed up and headed to Sommet Sauveur. I actually saw that Mont Blanc was open Sunday and people were skiing at it, but I didn't figure the conditions would be much different from Tremblant and besides which the freezing rain storm was already on its way. We got to Sommet Sauveur around 3:30 and I skied most of the runs around the Atomic lift, although the bottom of 70 Ouest was closed due to the Slush Cup the previous day. Based on Shane's trip report, conditions had already significantly changed from Saturday, although they were still better than at Tremblant. Of course, just as I arrived to the mountain, it started spitting, and then icing (not quite rain, not quite snow), so skiing fast that day would get you an ice facial. They ended up closing the lift ten minutes early even though things were not getting worse (I mean, they really could have gone that last ten minutes so people could have one more run!). Still though, I managed to get in a good number of quick runs and a couple of snaps!IMG_2726.thumb.JPG.2b42cbcd3174ecd1262781804aa29eb8.JPG

Ride up the chairlift and more flat light. This run was pretty decent, Jay, not so much.

Even though the light is flat, these colours still pop!
