pow in the CHIC CHOCS
« on: 03/29/16, 09:33 AM »

 While most migrated south for spring break at St. Lawrence University in search of waves and rays, 10 of us made the haul to the Gaspesie peninsula for a couple days to hunt some pow as a part of a Outing Club trip.

And we found it.
The first day brought crust at Mt. Hogback, but an overnight dump made for blower tree skiing and 4 laps at Mt Lyall. The next day, three of us ventured into some gnarlier terrain next to a caribou breeding reserve. We dug a pit and noticed fracturing within the first couple palm hits. We picked our way along a ridge, summited, then carved some nice slabby turns, waiting for the slope to let go.

Got back down safe and sound to the hut, to meet a squad of the Canadian mountain infantry hanging out after doing some climbing.

Old man Winter isn't finished in the Beast Coast quite yet!
