Donwhill Skiing: "Swan Dive", Camp Fortune, Quebec, Canada

It's the first day of spring skiing today and the conditions are just right for me to ski down Swan Dive, albeit not as graceful as a cygnet. It's the first time in many years that the run is open.

The route is steep and narrow with moguls. I had to back slide a few times to negotiate my way down and avoid jumping off a rock-face.

I would think it's a double-diamond by east-coast standard and is definitely outside of my comfort zone.

OK, enough excitement for one day !!
