  • Mont St-Sauveur in the Laurentians opened a few times in October over the last decade. Off the top of my head, 2015, 2013, 2011...
  • This is interesting, haven't seen this before - Mont Alta (now a lost lift area) in Quebec had a trail whose number was 0: Mont Alta Trail Map You should ask Frankontour (Francois on Zoneski), I believe he did the new map. Actually it's not re…

  • I figured it out - they are just a fraction of their previous size, other sides of the hill are now closed. Yep, runs on mountain no. 1 had trails 11-17; mountain no. 2 would be numbered in the 20s, mountain no. 3 in the 30s and the bigger mount…
