Ski expedition reaches the summit of Mount Royal!

Last Sunday, our intro to winter sports class made it all the way to the summit of Mont-Royal for the first time, on skis. Thanks to the serious preparation, team work and determination, everyone made it up and down safely. Above, a vertiginous view of one of the last climbs, in the final ascent to the top...

Here we are skiing across a barren, desolate ice field behind the main chalet, relying only on each other, GPS and sheer instinct to find our way...

And the final reward - what goes up must come down. Raul forges ahead fearlessly down the steepest slope.

Congratulations to everyone and thanks for the great ski season we've had so far - we've certainly made the most of the snow we've gotten!
