Ottawa?
 
Just getting a gauge on how many we have here from the Ottawa valley/Outaouais area, where you ride etc...? I am in Kanata, ride the legendary mosquito tit that is Mount Pakenham mostly as it is super close and cheap.

Mainly Camp Fortune, Vorlage or Edelweiss for night riding because they're close and cheap.

Mont Ste. Marie or Tremblant for the day. Jay peak, Killington, Le Massif, Mont Ste. Anne for the weekend.

Out West for anything longer.

i use to be in Outaouais and Edelweiss was good... then Fortune and Ste-Marie.
I've heard that Edelweiss again should be good this year...
I see a lot of people from Ottawa-Gatineau-Hull in Tremblant and also in Avila, as these two parks are good

I used to be at Fortune all the time. My buddies dad worked close to it so he'd drop us about an hour before the lifts open. Was really nice, maybe another 20 or so other people there on weekdays, mostly retired guys. They may not be huge but we are pretty lucky to have as many places as we do as close as we do.

Some mildly good news, Calabogie has started making snow. The coverage is pretty sad so far but at least it is a start. According to their sire they are aiming to open December 10.

Surprised no one's mentioned Cascades yet. I prefer that area with Fortune & Edelweiss there too. Can't beat these for proximity to Ottawa.

Tremblant (of course) & Mont Ste Marie. Even Pakenham. Hoping to try a few more this year.

Mont Saint-Sauveur has been open since Hallowe'en I think, but haven't been there.

Would be cool if Fortune, Cascades, Vorlage and Eidlewiess offered a super pass type deal like some of the western resorts do.
