East Coast Cat Skiing!?

By

The Northern Appalachian Mountain Range is home to a little known area which has some of the best skiing in the east.  The Chic-Chocs mountains, located in Gaspé region of the province of Québec, is not only beautiful but also challenging. It is here where you will find the best cat-skiing in the east,  Ski Chic Chocs. With all this natural beauty and outdoor entertainment, it’s no wonder that National Geographic Traveler named the Gaspé region one of the 20 Best Trips of 2011.

“We are based in the Haute-Gaspésie region at the foothills of the spectacular Chic-Chocs Mountains in the continuation of the Appalachian Mountains. This mountain destination, unique in the northeast, is an exceptional place for enjoying winter sports and particularly backcountry skiing and trekking. Our terrain includes numerous summits over 1,000 m ( 3500 feet ) with steep slopes that offer alpine and tree glade skiing. The snowfall is plentiful and averages 700 cm ( 20 feet ) falling from mid-October to mid-June with maximum coverage usually in January, February and March totalizing an average of more than 300 cm ( 10 feet ) remaining on the ground. The Chic-Chocs ski season can thus easily last some five (5) months per year, from mid-December to mid-May, or nearly 155 days in all, which represents  40% of the year!” – skichicchocs.com
