Olivier Poulin Mount Orford and his white coat
A brilliant plan for my winter vacations[Fugues.com 16-11-2010]
(Google translation) Holed up in the abyss of my storage room, they beg me every snowfall to make their presence beneficial in making me rediscover the joys of winter (I know, "joy" and "Winter" also seem to match although "integrity" and "House"). In the darkness, they décochent me a look that I avoid. J'acte an episode of temporary blindness, lay the skeleton of my canned soup in my recycling bin and shut the door immediately. The speed of my movement does not, however, spare me this feeling of guilt came over me. I realize that the only small white particles that came into contact with my poor skis for three years, dust the damn city! Pity for these old friends deported from their natural environment, I let soften. I rid my first skis the powder side and see that, contrary to my face, the years did not seem to affect the luster of their surface. My motivation is quickly replacing the guilt. I feel ready to dominate the slopes!
I admit, I probably need some adjustment before attacking the slopes steeper, after all those winters spent in carving the footprints of my post in my leather couch. My mouth requires fine a ski resort that is available to me many avenues to various degrees of difficulty and an after-ski that will awaken in my legs tired to move anyway. I stop on the web site of Mount Orford. Despite all the controversy of recent years, the popular spot is actually open!
Why drive 1 hour 30 in the Eastern Townships Eastern Townships from Montreal, so I could give a profit with my skis in a center closer to my beloved city? Because in fact, I think of my personal pleasure on this day of "reunion". With the 3D map of the website of the resort Mont Orford, I can see which trails are currently open (and their degree of difficulty) on three mountains and four sides. "With a total of 61 trails and glades, the resort skiers plunged right in the middle of the magnificent scenery of the Parc national du Mont-Orford," describes the marketing director of the station, Louise Faucher. The idea to warm up in the gondola while enjoying the view during the ascent as I like particularly. What do you want? my blood has decided to avoid driving in my extremities! And since I like the concept of keeping fingers and toes a few years &
It is on this outburst of frankness that Ms. Faucher tells me that there is presence of cottages on mountaintops. Fantastic! In addition, valet parking is offered on arrival during weekends and holidays, saving me having to laboriously drag all my equipment from the depths of the parking lot up to the mountain. Practice! Finally, the resort offers a terrain park available to the more adventurous skiers. Freestyle! I immediately called my buddy who just get to snowboard (I still want to be the best) and we are about 10 direction of Mount Orford!
