really says "steep" to me... if you think you're looking at it horizontally, yeah sure, it looks flat as shit, but you have to realize matt's probably got his neck/camera crained back and is looking up the thing... then suddenly it looks as steep as it surely is.

I need to get there sooner rather than later.
Nice work guys.Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

The section we climbed (on the less steep adjacent slope)? 100-150 feet. The section we skied? Two sections of 200-300 feet? We all had crampons and there was a great cramponing layer under the fresh snow, so it was pretty chill considering. What was scary was the rock scramble over the col to get into the ravine we skied.

Awesome stuff all around. Ever since seeing skiing in the Chocs in one of the meathead films a while back, I've been wanting to head up there. One of these years it's gotta happen, hopefully sooner rather than later.

This is how it looks looking over the edge:
Anyway, you got anymore info on them? I would be wicked pumped to find out if anyone/who skied them before.
More snow coming to the gaspe this weekend!

Wow I never really looked into the Chic Chocs for a trip but that looks sweet, may have to roadtrip it next season.

Listed as a climbing route in the guide ice climbing routes and mixes of quebec, this descent requires serious reflection before it's started! Possibly the most engaging of in the Chic-Chocs. One descent has been reported and it required a rappel with a rope. The snow conditions are not always sufficient to make it possible.

btw: from the guides, they said that 200-250 is likely every year but the mines can exceed 400" with albert coming in usually a bit behind. I think those other guys were near Logan, I hear they get a lot of snow too. I'd love to hit that line that flows in the sea. Next time I'll bring a harness too, could be handy so TC can lend an assist on those 4th laps, anyway......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

The mont st pierre area indeed has consistent skiing year in and out down to the road/water, which is in the same general area as the pics that I posted. But I too would be surprised if those steeper ones get skied frequently. A few descents maybe. But they look unskiably steep. That is a great shot, I can imagine a wrong turn resulting in a sure death tomahawk.

Thanks for posting the rest of the TR and bringing back more of the good memories. Some really nice shots in there, seems like you are getting the new camera dialed in. Next time i will have a bigger pack to fit my camera and get some shots of you... and hopefully that is next season during a deep pow cycle. Also for next time... more whiskey (thanks to ML and ISBD for that), ski crampons all around, and a freakin' roadmap!
edit to say i can't believe you didn't post the full on white out sequence immediately following...

Nice TR work all.

Thanks, Aaron! Can't wait to get back...
D(C), they're going to make an english version at some point, and the second edition should have a bunch of things that render our guidebook less cool. It probably won't be out for at least six months though. Nice finding it for sale online, anywhere, though......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record
