Ascent Trip ReportDecided to check this area out today. Pretty flat here. Surprisingly to me, this part of Laval is practically rural; farmland out there with loads of pumpkins out for sale today.
I had read about the existence of Mont-Laval having a 60 m altitude, so after visiting PB's high point, I drove out to the west end of Blvd. St-Martin in Ste-Dorothée. There is an actual hill there, moreso than anything else I have seen in Laval. Apparently until recently used to be an RV park here. Access is restricted now due to residential construction, so I couldn't go up. Maybe next year I will check it out to see if the area is open but this is not a priority. I think Mont-Laval may actually be Ile-Jésus high point, I do see a 65 m spot elevation on the Cal topo map. I wondered if this was manmade??? I actually came across pictures of a ski station with lifts that was opened there in 1965, and later apparently also there was a water park. I kind of wonder what is still there. If I ever confirm, I would try to have the PB highpoint for Laval corrected.
