Laurentian Snowshoe Traverse

A beautiful day for a map and compass traverse of the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal, from Prévost to Sainte-Adele.  We parked our car at the P’tit Train du Nord station in Prévost, and arrived at the station in Sainte-Adele 5 hours and 4 minutes, and 13.37 km later.  Our route decisions were made possible by map maker Francis Falardeau’s detailed orienteering map, which indicated many littled-used backcountry snowshoe trails.  Many thanks to the kind couple from Sainte-Adele who gave us a ride back to our car at the end of the day!

Average snowfall for the season so far

Checking the map
Jessica considers real estate in the area; odd place for an advertisement!
We tried to avoid the power lines as much as possible, but they are occasionally inevitable
