102/102(*) Open Trails on the cool morning, warmer afternoon slopes at #Tremblant .

What You Get At Tremblant Right Now:

The Benefits Of Refinement.

Versant Nord, The North Side, Trail #65, Banzai, Bas, Lower.

Above:
We frequently use this trail segment as an indicator of overall
sector and Mountain conditions status because it, and its parallel
adjacent trail, Marie-Claude Asselin are pure, natural snow only
trails that are very sensitive to weather and use. They can only
be groomed when there is an abundance of snow, so that is the
first major benefit. The second major benefit is that we say when
this “Black Diamond” rated trail is in this super-smooth, super
high-traction, ice free, all snow, base condition, we would take
a confident Intermediate Skier with solid, fundamental “Hockey Stop”
skills, on its lower descent portion without hesitation. What you see
above are 2 Intermediate Skiers doing exactly that, and having a great
time in the process. What you don’t get with this photo are “Whoop’s”
and “Hollers” of joyful expression being shouted out with the joy and
fun of the moment as they work their way down.

What is the greatness of this trail sample above, and many others
like it, is that as Experts, we can let these folks descend, and when
the trail is clear, we can literally carve our descent on this trail with
our 11 metre, 160 Cm’s, Slalom Race Skis. In our opinion, this
helps define the versatility we speak of in Tremblant’s current
state of all-winter refinement. There is a huge degree of “Forgiveness”
in todays conditions that allows, and even facilitates, multi-skill level
enjoyment across the entire footprint of the Mountain.

While it may be common to associate refined terrain versatility
with the ability for Beginners and Intermediates to explore
additional challenge, there is no doubt in our opinion that it
flows in the other direction as well with specific reference to
the current technique application of carving turns rather than
skidding turns. We see a huge population of Experts spending
time on Blue, and even Green terrain that is immaculately smooth,
utilizing safe speed to generate extreme angles of inclination in
sequentially alternating arch’s of razor sharp tracks for full descents
that approach the lateral G-loads that are equal to, or greater than
what a Race Car can achieve on a Race Track. They are primarily using
short radius, shorter lengths between 155 to 170cm's Slalom style skis
with very dramatic side-cuts in the 10 to 12 metre turning radius range.
In that regard, Tremblant’s Groomed terrain is a spectacularly diverse
range of pitches, lengths and widths that can turn any Experts quad
muscles into Jello after just a few hours of concentrated training lapping.
The thrill of the skill is addictive.

Below:
The finished width of Versant Soleil Trail #95, Algonquin
is just about comparable to the AutoRoute, I-95, the 401,
or any other major controlled access highway, and generally,
groomed as smooth as a golf course fairway. It is not
unusual to see all skill levels of skiers sharing the space.
For Beginners, the gentle pitch angle makes it an easy
learning trail, while a bit of safe speed makes the contours
come alive for Experts and it’s possible to make a lot
of turns in the air if you study the topography carefully
with a couple of careful investigation runs.

If we take the difference between tonight’s overnight lows
forecasted and what the differences between previous
forecasted and actuals are, we might theorize an actual
low tonight of -22C +/-???

Conditions Notes:

Mountain traffic has not been as busy as we might have expected
for the Quebec Spring School Break, at least so-far. Consequently
if that was to be the case again today, the trail conditions across the
whole Mountain should remain at the very highest All-Day quality
possible.

In a way, we don’t think it would really matter all that much, even
if there was more traffic because there is just soooo much snow,
and it’s been so well integrated into the groomed base. Combined
with the super-cool overnights, the results should freeze-dry the
crispness in and the humidity out and render traffic resistant surfaces.

This is why you choose Tremblant...
Winter, in all it’s crisp, cold, glory, produces
month after month of very consistent sequential
days of exceptional thermal-free, very easy
performance.

Like Champagne, the very best performance snow
is served well chilled!

:) Bring Back The Memories... :arrow: Research Future Visits...
If you would like to look up dates you visited Tremblant, or you
want to research days/weeks/months to visit, you can sample what
they look like historically, month by month, year by year.

GoTo: Archive, Search Reports by Date: Index: http://tinyurl.com/yktelmu

When reviewing dates from any of the past, numbered, archived pages,
you can use the "Previous Topic" or "Next Topic" buttons, located
screen far right, in upper date/message bar to scroll through sequential
dates, or use your browsers "back" button to stay on the selected index
page for non-sequential date reviews in either forward or reverse order.


There are approximately 6, 25 day Index pages per season.

( :idea: If you "Bookmark" the link above, it will always take you to the
First index page with the latest posts. That gives you an immediate,
current to 25 day past, review scroll of Winter Alpine Conditions by
consecutive date.)
