Le Massif de Charlevoix, QC: 3/26/10

La Bordage

After apres-ski beers in the sun at the bottom of Mont Edouard yesterday, a cold front moved in and the bottom promptly dropped out. When I got up this morning, it was a brisk -15F.

On our way back to the Quebec City airport, we pulled into Le Massif for some photo ops, and weren’t disappointed. The high temp was only 3F, so a few trails were bullet-proof, but many were top-to-bottom (2,400 verts) soft as could be.

Another cool thing about Le Massif is the trail-name theme — most are old French sea-faring terms.

That’s all folks — one of our best trips ever.

  1. Besides nailing some great conditions, you’ve managed to hit several areas that had been completely off my radar screen. Massif du Sud and Mount Edouard seemed really appealing to me. My wife and I love traveling to Quebec, and your reports have inspired Beth to plan a Quebec ski trip for next winter. IF she can drag me away from Gore of course…
