Gravity is definitely winning in here… and we’re OK with that.

It truly was a surreal experience: Sunday on a holiday weekend from 8:30am to 4:00pm, and we only encountered two parties of skiers (one of which was lost, and whom we pointed back to the resort [note to backcountry users: DON’T ATTEMPT TO LEAD YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS 2 MILES AWAY FROM THE RESORT AT 330PM UNLESS YOU ARE CONFIDENT IN YOUR ROUTEFINDING ABILITIES AND YOUR PREPAREDNESS TO DEAL WITH HARDSHIP!

      while montreal escaped the “icing”, the townships didn’t. sutton got another 10cm on top of it though, I don’t think bromont was so lucky.

      “This is what snowboarders love to do to skin tracks.”
