Parc National de la Gaspesie

For the past three years I have traveled to the Gaspe Region of Quebec with Middlebury College for the spring break. This year five gals signed up for a backcountry ski adventure in the Chic Choc Mountains. Catherine, Jacqui, Stephanie, Allison and Ali took their week vacation ski touring in this remote area of eastern Canada. These mountains are known for the deep snowpack and excellent spring touring. This year the snowpack was low, about half the normal amount. When we arrived, I knew we had to do some searching for our turns. We kept at it, and by mid week a storm brought a few inches to help us out. Skiing was pretty good, and the glades on Champs de Mar provided the finest smooth turns we found. Enjoy the photos of the Middlebury gals making tracks in the Chic Choc Mountains of Canada.
