Just got back from four days in Quebec City having a wild and wonderful winter extavaganza. It included, among other things, a day spent skiing the trails of Mont St. Anne on a zero degree day of crystal clear skies and green wax on my rentals. I will get to posting some pictures soon, but I had to tell you all that of the 4-5 places I've ever skied x-c (ski centers) this one was far and away the best ever. It was certainly a combination of the bitter cold, the sunny skies, the impeccable grooming job and the boreal forests of the canadian shield (oh, and friendly canadians always helps too). And I didn't think I could top my Awosting trip last month...
