I was in the Laurentides (Mont Tremblant) with my family for a week of snowboarding. A 3 ½ hour drive from Burlington. On Wednesday, the rain came and temperature went above freezing (52F). The 1 ½” of snow turned into ice after the temperature dropped overnight (-6). It stayed cold for another 36 hours.

I was able to skate for 2 days on Lac-Supérieur and today on Lac Tremblant. There are many lakes Laurentides. I think, with the right weather ice and condition, the Laurentides could be a worthwhile multi day trip to explore wild skating there. In particular, before we have ice in Vermont or after the ice is gone here.

On Lac-Supérieur the ice was about 12” think. On lake Lac Tremblant between 6” to 8”. The surface was a little bumpy. Not rough enough to cause any falls and a skateble orange peel. But worthwhile to skate on it.
