The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Ski Quebec’s Powder Stash


4. Insider’s Tip

If it’s the day after a big powder dump, experienced skiers should head for the trees. Le Massif’s ungroomed glades are among the longest and steepest in the East. The run Le Sous-Bois, off the Camp-Boule chair lift, is a good entry point, offering a well-spaced, not too steep pitch that’s just long enough to feel the burn. After warming up there, head to the west side of the mountain for glade-skiing grad school, a winding, vertical maze of tight woods known as L’Artimon.
