Friday Flick: Skiing the Chic Chocs

The Chic Choc mountain range in Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula is one of the least visited Eastern ski regions. It is also one of the most dramatic. Rising 1,220 metres above the banks of the St. Lawrence Seaway, this huge backcountry range regularly receives six metres of snow; the terrain is all couloir-grooved peaks, huge bowls, spaced evergreen glades, and mellow cirques. You can even go cat-skiing here.
