We’ll be skiing along trail 50 for about 4 kilometres and then taking trail 55 to Renaud Cabin; for those who wish to ski farther, we’ll make arrangements at P19. These trails are scenic and beautiful, and easy to ski. Bring your lunch and drinks and maybe something extra to share–we’ll all be at Renaud Cabin by 12:00 noon.
