Not sure how things were that far south but I know the snow on the Ottawa area hills was close to mid season form thanks to some pretty cold nights/days for snowmaking leading up to it.

That could be pretty hard to find as the trees grow a bit too dense for glade type riding.The places I have had luck are locating areas cleared for hydro lines and towers on topo maps as they are clear of trees for the most part.That is about the closest I have found to back country riding here in ON.

Yea you make a good point... hydro lines makes sense as the most probable option.

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

Old logging roads are good too but a lot of time they are taken over by local snowmobile clubs.Though then it is like riding a private groomer.

Quebec city hills

Just moved to Quebec City. I hear Le Relais is the place to go for jumps (no jumps at RCR hills Stoneham & Ste Anne)
Massif-du-Sud looks like it has the best park in the region... it's just too far to ride at 3-5 days a week.
Also a little hill close to Val Cartier called Castor, says it has a park but I can't find more info...

Probably just going to buy a Relais season pass and then pay lift tickets elsewhere when it snows.

InfiniteEclipse, you live in Toronto? You're about 5hrs from some good mountains/snow in New York state. Drive to Kingston, ON then head straight E-SE.
As far as within Ontario goes, you're shit-outta-luck, besides riding hydro lines.
Snowiest place in Ontartio? Wiarton (lots of lake effect, more snow than up north)

The north shore of Superior gets dumped on close to as much and tends not suffer as frequent of melts.Plus there are decent sized hills too like King mountain....only problem is they are all too heavily treed to ride and a pain to get to.

Yep you're totally right about the northern Ontario snow... it is more consistant, colder, and less prone to melt than the southern lake effect storms. 250-300cm range.
However, the hills are just that... hills.
