The Chic-Chocs contain the highest mountains in Quebec and get far more snow than any other part of the Appalachians. It is the only place in North America where deer, moose and woodland caribou co-exist. We will ski for 5 days staying at comfortable wood stove heated cabins on our way to Mont Logan at 1,150m (3,773 ft.) The trail is of intermediate to expert calibre and varies from easy to difficult depending on snow conditions. Daily distances vary from 7 to 21 km (4-15 miles). We should have remarkable views as we ski above the tundra covered cliff wall, which looks out over the Lower St. Lawrence River. There are many small lakes and ponds along our route that are extremely beautiful in freshly falling snow.
We will spend three nights in a chalet, two in a mountain cabin and one in a 4 star resort hotel. There will be lots of snow (8 feet on the ground).
Our supplies will be moved for us by snow machine as needed so you won't have to carry a heavy pack and may want to do some optional touring or telemark skiing at the end of the day.
Our first three nights will be spent in a chalet with hot and cold running water, electricity, etc. All the comforts of home. The 4th and 5th nights in a mountain cabin with a good wood stove but no electricity or running water. We will melt snow. The last night will be spent in Le Gite du Mont Albert with a gourmet dinner and buffet breakfast (included).
