Highest point 2300 meters; get there in 4 hours non-stop and back in 2; hide skis in the forest then come back until no more snow available :lol:
Last Friday was a typical winter day on the mountain, windy and foggy with still a lot of snow above 1500 m. After skiing down it cleared but for me it was too late. Yesterday was perfect. I waste some of my vacation days on hunting these kind of days. The weekend is not enough.

Great stuff Merak! Nice snow, nice photos, nice terrain. It would be a horrible waste to not ski that as much as possible. The weekend is NEVER enough for skiing.

Merak, I wouldn't have three vacation days left over if I had terrain like that. Looks like you could spend a lot of time exploring in those mountains. Great photos, always nice when you post photos.

Spring has arrived but we are still skiing winter like conditions!

La montagne Noire (Saint-Donat, Québec) was looking great this week end with some fresh powder. With a summit at 892m and a vertical drop of roughly 400m, the snow should last for a while.

I really like the skis (Asnes Kongvold), but I am not the norm on this forum. I am xx, small and aging! The skis have a soft shovel so they initiate a turn with little effort. They also have enough width to float in the powder. With camber and a half(?) they tour/track well. No metal edges so the skis are extremely light. I have a HD Voile three pin bindings mounted and I use an old pair of Scarpa T-3's. The boot, binding, ski match works well. I think an NNN backcountry set-up would work also. I bought the ski online at Neptune Mountaineering, but I think their stock of Asnes skis gone? You can get more info at Asnes website.
