Here is a 3 words description of Skiing today at St.Sauveur: WET, RAIN and 3 trails (Red Bird, 70 and Nordique).
Lower pitches of 70 West and Nordique were closed. The mountain crew seemed to be working on these trails. On Lower Hill 70 West they were building jumps/rails. The HSQ was the only lift open.
The St.Sauveur area had received some heavy wet snow overnight. And for those with wishful thinking (like me)….. it rained all day (no snow). It started to Rain heavily at 1:00pm. Yes, there was the odd wet snow flakes toward 2:00, however it didn’t last long. It was still raining when I left St.Sauveur at 5PM.
All things considered, the skiing was good. The place was virtually deserted (especially in the afternoon). The coverage on the bottom of 70 East (only place to reach the lift from 70 West and Nordique) was getting more and more washed off. At 3:00, the snow was so wet that if you didn’t carry good speed it would stop you.
