Parc National de la Gaspesie

I just returned from the annual Middlebury College spring break ski trip. Five gals and myself went to the Gaspe Region of Eastern Canada for a week of backcountry ski touring. The Gaspe area (Chic Chocs) offers numerous peaks to climb and ski, some of the tours lead to steep chutes and other tours are on gladed runs. This years snowpack was half the normal amount but as you see in the photos there was plenty of fun to be had.

Jacqui again putting down some very nice turns.
Ali looking very solid for her first season freeing the heel.
This years trip was another great success. Thanks to Middlebury College for promoting backcountry adventures like this for the spring break.
