I learned to ski at Mont Du Lac with my dad back in the early 1980s. I just came across this picture of the new chalet at the top of the hill and wow! This looks stunning. Apparently it is called the Trophy Lodge. Is it open yet? Has anyone been inside? Is the bar/restaurant open? I’m sure this old news but it sure looks nice. I really need to get back out there and make some turns to check it out. Lots of great memories of skiing with my dad, close calls and goofing off with friends. I remember Ridge Run but wasn’t West and East Bowl called something else back in the day? There also used to be a lift and run off the back side of ridge run.

  1. Cory, I noticed you used the plural form of “to turn” here?

  2. When I was a kid in the early 1980s the west bowl was called “bull.” It could have been “bowl” and I could have been too young to know the difference. That was back in the days of the pet goat.

  3. When I was up there a couple weeks ago the new chalet was not yet open, and looked far from finished inside. Maybe next year. They do have some new bowls and terrain elements. Good place for kids to ski -- not so much for adults.

  4. Was skiing Mont du last night. Chalet isn’t open, but is very close. I know that they want it open for weddings this summer, so expect it to be open soon.
