Poutine

I woke up to sunny skys and fresh snow! The wind had died down and fluffy snow gathered on the sidewalks. We were going back to Monte St Anne today and I couldn't wait! Everyone else was moving a little slower so we went to the lodge for breakfast first...then hit the slopes! The entire mountain looked completely different today since the fog had cleared and the sun was shining brightly. The new snow made a huge difference as well. I was sailing down the moguls, winding through the trees and even hit a (small) jump. Surprise! We found a slope called the Enchanted Forrest where you could ski through the trees- these areas are commonly referred to as "glades." There were wood cutouts of different amimals and I felt like Alice in Wonderland! The skiing conditions were perfect, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and the views from the top of the mountain overlooking the City and the St Lawerance were breathtaking!

The skiing was so wonderful that I only took one small break for lunch. One of the guys that I had lunch with ordered.......poutine. Just looking at these gravy laden french fries with heavy cheese curds blobbed on them made me sick. Although I forced myself to try it anyway. My honest opinion is that poutine really isn't as bad as it looks, or sounds for that matter. Athough I'm still not sure who came up with the idea and it probably won't be anything that I'll be craving anytime soon.

On the way home we stopped at the IGA where my roomate and I picked up a wheel of Brie cheese, baguettes, fruit and french wine. I indulged in all of the delicacies when we got back to the room then took a short nap to get ready for my last night on Grand Alle!

We started the night out at Ozone again where each of the boys ordered their own pitchers and were quite drunk...then we went to Maurice for martini specials! I ordered a drink called the St Charlotte and I have no idea what was in it but it was blue and tasted like summer! That night when we went back to Lowes Le Concorde one of my friends had been kicked out of his room. So, we jammed three of us into one of the double sized bed and all fell asleep eating dark chocolate/shortbread cookies!
