I would love to go, but please notice that the date of the Quebec trip coincides with another important "ski club" meeting:


I've been to the Carnaval several times, and it's incredible. You'll get a first-hand view of how far behind the USA is in staging large celebrations. About the only thing better may be the Quebec City Summer Carnaval.

Skiing at Mont Sainte-Anne and Le Massif should be great (I've mountain biked, but not skied, both hills). The view from the top of Le Massif -- looking out over the St. Lawrence River filled with huge ships and ice floes -- ranks up there with Heavenly as one of the best money shots in all of skiing.

Well, if it flies, at least I'll have SOMETHING to console me while you guys are all off in Utah having fun!

Of course my plans will be IF she meets her number, IF my ex will take my son for the week-end, IF my mom will babysit one day for us, IF, IF, IF.... sigh.....

Wish it would just hurry up and snow already! [img]smile.gif[/img]

I'd like to know more. What's the travel time from Mahwah. The idea is you'd drive up Thursday, ski Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Monday and drive back Monday PM. How would it work?

You know, that really is a great deal -- transportation + several meals + Le Chateau Frontenac: the most famous/recognizable hotel in Eastern Canada.

Well, I'm not running the trip, just a wanna be participant trying to drum up more bodies for Beth. Her phone # and e mail are in the original post.

From what she's telling me, we'd leave Thursday morning at 7 am, and arrive 8 or 9 hours later at the hotel.

That leaves Thursday night to settle in and explore, and Friday, Saturday & Sunday to play.

Arrival time back in Mahwah is approx. 4 pm on Monday, so that is basically a shot travel day.

I was hesitant to use 3 vacation days myself for what is actually 3 play days and two travel days, until I checked the website for the hotel out and heard everyone else's rave reviews
