Ascent Trip Report

We left Québec City early in the morning, the four of us crammed up in Jean-François's car with our ski gear. There had been heavy snowfall and we were expecting a lot of powder. When we reached the Massif du sud, we got our tickets and got lifted up to the summit.

Unfortunately, because of the heavy loose snow, I made a bad move in the first descent and sprained some muscles in my back. I spent the whole day sitting on the patios watching people have fun skiing down. I got some sun in, weather was calm, I enjoyed the day still!
