This morning, I shouldn't left Sainte-Adele. I'm an emotive guy, and i get carry away easily. Especialy when I see post and video about ski on facebook.
Yesterday, someone posted an awesome 10 seconds video at jay in snow condition that looked phenomenal.
This morning, we could read on facebook: 4 inches of snow at the base of Jay Peak.
That was enough for me.
After a quick stop in Sutton, I picked up my old buddy Johnny and headed to Jay.
The problem with skier: they lie like fisherman. The 4 inches of snow were in fact 4 inches metric (4 centimeters).
The partner's choice is really important in those kind of condition. when you have to turn around, you have to turn around. But when you are an old stubborn grinch and you partner is the same, you keep convincing yourself that it's going to be better at the summit.
It's was the same at the summit
After a quick stop at the summit we started to ski.
You have to be completely stupid to ski in those conditions with no snow, no skin, no cable, no helmet
The summit was covered by the usual Jay Cloud. The visibility was none.
At mid-mountain, things where not better
Once we got out of the cloud, the snow was no where to be found.
Even the easiest run where not skiable.
To shorten our pain, we decided to go downhill from here
We made it back home, unsatisfied with the result.
The only good thing, the Carabins of the university of Montréal won over the Rouge et Or of university Laval yesterday (canadian university football)
Post the gifs!
Allright, here's the gifs
It makes me laugh every time... not so much because of you guys, but it reminds me when I have done the exact same things!
My wife says it's good motivation - she feels like she can finally relate her entire skiing experience
