    Thanks for the great report, see why I said try to squeeze a fourth day? One of the best times to visit Quebec City is in February during "Le Carnival". The boaters you saw in the river may have been practicing for the famous ice canoe race across the river to Levi, held during Carnival. Le Chateau Frontenac was a great choice for lunch, did you see the huge statue of Frontenac and the Terrasse Dufferin, a walkway that goes all the way to the Plains of Abraham-that's probably the x-country ski track that you saw? A few years ago they held a World Cup race there, right in the city.

    Glad you liked Le Massif, I prefer it to Mont Ste Anne too and there's nothing like it. Whiteface has more vertical, but flattens out the bottom 1/3 of the mountain. Le Massif is flat at the top for a short distance, then drops fairly steep right to the river. When you hit the steep part, it seems as if you could catch big air and land in the river. The river at Le Massif is so wide the locals call it the sea. Was the FIS sanctioned downhill trail La Charlevoix open, did you see how they built that dirt pyramid to add enough vertical to be sanctioned, you have to climb all those stairs to get to the downhill start?

    Thanks again for the report and photos, brings back a lot of memories.

    Great trip report Edd. Makes me want to go back. I haven't been to Quebec City since the early 80's.

    No. We were aware of it but inbounds with great conditions was enough for us that day.
