I've posted on this forum only a handful of time but I'm mostly a reader, I've red everything here...
I miss the time when Johnny and Bri7 where posting nice xcd action video, so I figured I should do my own with the gopro cam I got for christmas!
I xc ski on the "Mont-Tremblant" mountain, from the top and bottom I have access to a network of about 60km of abandoned xcd trails from the 80's.
Here is a clip I did on February 4th on a 8 km trip from the base of the ski resort up half way, down to the lake and across to my home.
Snow conditions: trail was already broken with 15cm of fresh over a breakable crust on the sides, it was pretty warm (-3C) and the snow was really fast, I took 1 or 2 fall trying to slow me down on that evil crust.

And another clip from January 28 on a cold and beautiful -20C day.
11km from the top of Tremblant on the ridge to Johannsen Peak, down to the north side and back to the north base.
Snow conditions: the night before was one of the coldest storm ever recorded (15cm snow fall at -30C), all that over a supportive crust... It was the slowest fresh powder I ever skied on, I was ski walking on the flats and kicking and gliding on the downs.
