QUEBEC was certainly not the first place that came to mind when I thought about where to score some powder days last winter. But then I went and learned better.
In the middle of the Gaspé Peninsula in southeastern Quebec (think of it as sitting on top of the state of Maine) stand the Chic-Choc Mountains. There are no major lift operations here — the snow you’re looking for is all backcountry, which also means it’s all yours.
The images below are from a trip last February with fellow Matador Ambassadors Dylan Siggers and Sean Michael Williams. Reviewing these shots gets me fired up to go back for more.
