Groulx Mountain Adventure
Discover the remote Groulx Mountains of NE Quebec on skis and snowshoes. Explore the culture of Quebec both in its cities and villages as well as it's immense back-country. See the northern lights, open summits, caribou, wolf, and ptarmigan. Camp in huts and tents, build snow shelters, gain skills in orienteering, and learn to backcountry ski.
The trip leaves Robinson Hall early on Thursday March 15 and returns Saturday night March 24. We stop in Quebec City to connect with the French culture, and spend the first and last night at the Youth Hostel in Tadousac at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord where it meets the St. Lawrence River. We drive north to a remote cabin where we prepare for our expedition, then ski to the plateau and sleep in heated tents. We explore different areas of the mountains and spend a total of 8 days on the plateau skiing and snowshoeing.
Improve your skiing, learn to snowshoe, bake bannock and learn to be comfortable in a winter paradise. PE credit is available.
