While on a week long traverse of the Haute Gaspesie in Quebec a few years ago, we tried to ski this beautiful little mountain when it was in our sights. However, the passing of a warm front, with its steady rain and snow-eating nighttime temperatures, had other plans for us. So we skied on, playing it safe. In the days that followed, the rain turned back to snow and we enjoyed some of the most enjoyable skiing of our lives.
Still, we couldn’t shake the sights of this mountain from our adventurous imaginations, and after completing the traverse, we contemplated a 30 mile marathon tour just to get back to ski one of the main lines to the lookers-left of the summit. The thought was easily silenced by the howling winds of an approaching blizzard – a storm that left us with 20″ of fresh snow by morning. The mountain would just have to wait.
