Well, I wasn't really physically ready to jump out of bed when my alarm went off at 7AM but I knew I was going to be trying out my new skis today so I piled on all my gear and hopped on the bus by 8. Today we will be skiing at Mont St Anne which is about an hour drive out of the city.
My new skis are amazing! They are Jewel Crystal by Salomon and are wonderful! I have noticed a trememdous change in my skiing ability. They make moguls a lot easier to navigate and provide an excellant ride! I was having an amazing time on them. The mountain was great as well. Unfortunately snow conditions weren't very good but this is definately the best skiing I have done on the East coast.
By the time we got back to the hotel I was exhausted and took a much needed nap. Our group leader bought everyone pizza and then we all prepared to go out. I found a tiny little bar in the basement of a restaurant called Vot de Napolean. We ordered drinks there and listened to a french boy singing and playing guitar. He did covers of Bon Jovi, Oasis, Pink Floyd and even Britney Spears! He also sang several French songs which were great! We stopped at another bar called Ozone on the way home where i finished my night with a black russian. Here my roomate met a French boy named Max! We all went back to our hotel room and hung out for a while. I asked him what authentic Quebec cuisine I should try while here and he told me about Poutine.- This is a dish consisting of french fries with fresh cheese curds and covered in gravy. Supposedly the curds freshness is important because this makes them soft but keeps them from completely melting. --This is one thing I probably wont be trying! We all stayed up and chatted for a while then called it a night.
