The spring was a busy one!
After checking out all the new gear at SIA, I headed east to the snowpocolyptic town of Boston. After being delayed by the storm, which was probably the 3rd in a week, I got in and met up with Shay Lee, Jonny Durst, Mitchell Brower and Khai Krepela so that we could begin skiing Boston.
Boston had so much snow! It was definitely hard to get anywhere around town with the amount of snow and traffic in Boston. Frustration hadÂ set in by the end of the trip after having to wait 2 hours in a packed van to get anywhere.
The abundance of snow
After our weekÂ skiing Boston wrapped up we grabbed a bus to Montreal from Burlington, Vermont. With a new storm coming in hot we were told to take the overnight bus so we wouldnâ€™t get trapped by the storm. So we hung out inÂ Montreal for the day before gettingÂ on our next bus. Leaving at 10pm and arriving at 9:30am the next morning was a little rough.
After the SUPER long bus ride (post skiing Boston)Â we arrived in Murdockville, QC. And there was definitely an abundance of snow! We were fortunate enough to be invited for 2 weeks to rip around the Chic Choc Mountains. We stayed at the fine Auberge Chic-Chac Lodge, a small catski/heli operator.

First time in a Helicopter!
We had a great experience over the two weeks spent in Northeastern Quebec! The Chic-Chac Lodge definitely has some of the best skiing in the east coast!! If youâ€™re ever thinking of making the trip I definitely recommend it!
