learn powder skiing near Quebec?

Where is good to learn powder skiing in and around Montreal?
I'm guessing most powder or off piste is in between trees so not necessarily the easiest to learn technique?

Around Montreal, no, you aren't going to find much powder, especially not this year. The only option is really to go morning after a dump.

might be difficult to book an instructor with only a few hours notice?
what about Jay Peak?

Jay Peak.  Great glade skiing, and a cloud that drops frequent fresh.  Nothing's reliable in the East, of course, especially as the temperature climbs.

Are there instructors there that can teach powder technique? I assume you'd have to ask specifically for a lesson based on that?

J'imagine, though I've never taken a lesson there.  I hear good things about the teaching staff.

Surely the powder hangs around for a while unless temps get above zero and then it freezes again?

Right now temp gets above freezing during the day with mixed rain/snow and only gets warmer, and no real snow in forecast. Besides any places that's close to Montreal tend to have powder tracked out pretty quickly, especially on weekends (that and these places really have no significant trees/off piste to begin with).

If you are willing to go further your options open up, I heard le massif pass quebec city is great, but never been there myself.
