Post subject:  Snow Depth-Any Snow?

Four of us are going snowshoeing to Quebec at the end of the month (two hours north of Montreal) and want to do a shakedown snowshoe hike this Saturday within about 1.5 to 2 hours drive from GTA.
From the info I got from some friends, there is no snow or hardly any, even as far north as Collingwood (except on ski hills).
Where can we find any deep snow (more than na foot) within the prescrbed driving time?

Nothing of note here near Barrie, but once you get north of Orillia, apparently there's snow.

Snow conditions north of Montreal are great. Just returned from a weekend of snow shoeing and X-C skiing in reserve faunique de Papineau-Labelle, 2 hrs north of Montebello. Enjoy your trip.

Snow depth measurements taken at various places yesterday...

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/snow/snowon

Barrie has 12 cm, while Muskoka Airport has 33... more than the 26 given here in Bancroft. Those 26 cm are deep enough for snowshoes, too deep to walk through easily.

Just got back from Algonquin today. Lots of deep snow in the bush! I was surprised at how much there was. If you didn't have snowshoes, you wouldn't be able to walk anywhere. I was around the Big Pines Trail.

Yup, that's what I'm saying. :wink:

Take a look at the interactive map on the OFSC site...see how far you have to go to get enough snow for snowmobile trails to be "open" (green).

Well, If we have to drive more than a couple of hours to get to deep snow, we will (meaning: getting an early morning start).

Spent last saturday Snowshoeing the eastern side of the ganaraska trail in the Queen Elizabeth II PP near Minden. 20 inches in the bush at least and snowshoeing was great. I would say any where from Minden north would suffice.

Just a quick note:
We returned from the Laurentians on Monday (4 guys).
We snowshoed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 24.-26.)in Saint-Adolphe D'Howard/Morin Heights area. Had about 3 feet of snow and the weather was fine (sun on Sunday and cloudy on Friday and Saturday, temperature did not go below minus 9 degrees C). Fresh snow fell overnight Friday to Saturday (about 10-15 cm).
Visited old derilict ruins of the Pineteee line station (Like DEW line but in the Laurentians).
Had great meals in Saint- Sauveur at Moe's and The Creperie Bretonne
