LE MASSIF DE CHARLEVOIX | QUEBEC TRAVEL VLOG #6

LE MASSIF DE CHARLEVOIX | QUEBEC TRAVEL VLOG #6


Good morning everybody. We are in Quebec and we’re about to go snowboarding at Le Massif in Charlevoix It’s the last day of our 6 part vlog series and what better day to finish it than by shredding powder. It’s been snowing all night. We love snowboarding, and it’s going to be the first time we get to ride this year. Yeah, let’s go do it. Allons-y! This is rad. First step is to go get some gear and meet up with the local ski ambassador who is going to take us around the mountain. Oh guys. It is a crisp, beautiful day. All the pine trees are just frosted with fresh snow, and Le Massif sounds like it is going to be pretty massive. It is the highest mountain east of the Canadian Rockies. So it’s going to be pretty big. I think it’s 700 meters of vertical drop down to the sea level. Nice. It’s going to be cool. What’s your favorite thing about skiing or snowboarding at Charlevoix? Le Massif? Nature. Nature? We are suited and booted, and we’re going to go explore the mountain with our local friends here: Catherine, Jean-Fred and they’re going to show us the mountain. Where should we go today? We’ll start with a couple runs around here. is our favorite. It’s the secret here Locals go there So we’ll start with that and after we’ll see if you’re ready guys for some black diamond runs. We’re ready. We’re ready, ready! Allons-y! Bif. This place has the most incredible view. You can see the Saint Lawrence and the Bay de Saint Paul. It’s pretty much the opening of the Saint Lawrence River into the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a cargo ship over there. What a great place to ride. Super cool. Out here is Newfoundland and the Grand Banks, a big cod fishing area. So that’s why a lot of people came here originally. And there’s a lot of fishing villages around here. They used to do cod fishing, whaling back in the day. A lot of these runs here are named after the maritime heritage. But for now, time to go riding. Bro Shralped gnar Shred-sesh To the extreme Dank Delish Pow-pa-lious How about you? All I have to say is good luck to our translators. Try to translate that California slang! Impossibile. Quick question for all you guys out there. Do you ski or snowboard? Snowboard, bro. Put it in the comment box. Merci beaucoup. Super fun. But I think we’re going to call it half day and head back out. We’ve been snowboarding along the banks of the Saint Lawrence River this whole day so now we’re going to go check out and see what we can see. It’s right on the gulf of the Saint Lawrence River where the river opens up really wide. So hopefully we’ll see some cool stuff. Allons-y. All right guys. So we started there at Baie Saint Paul. And now we’re in this little town Saint Joseph de la Rive We’re headed to this place. Ile aux Coudres Supposedly, it’s about a 15 minute ferry ride over there, but it’s pretty incredible because we’re at the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River. There’s ice everywhere, icebergs floating in the water. But we’re pretty lucky because there’s a little bit of sunshine, and it’s relatively clear above us now. So we got here a little bit early. The next ferry runs in about 10 or 15 minutes So we’re going to wait, take the ferry across and see what we can find over there. We are going to do a little bit of exploration right now. We’re not really sure what’s on this island or what it looks like, but we’ll go see what we can discover. Pretty incredible place to finish our journey….. an island in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River. at the entrance of the Atlantic Ocean an incredible sunset, good weather, pretty rad, man. The journey started in Montreal, went to Quebec City and here in Charlevoix. And the one thing that has united all those things has been the Saint Lawrence River So I think it’s quite fitting for us to finish our journey here on an island in the middle of the Saint Lawrence. What was your favorite part of the trip so far, man? I mean, I don’t know. It’s hard, especially when you’re talking about Montreal versus Quebec City. I think that you can’t pick favorites. They’re just so different. I love the vibe in Montreal. I thought it was really cool, young, multicultural. It was bilingual. But in Quebec City, it’s totally different. Quebec City was like a time warp. It was like going back to 17th century France. Almost like a fairy tale city. And then to see the canoe race across the Saint Lawrence and to be there for winter Carnival and on the same day also go to the restaurant like we did the La Bouche The Sugar Shack. Oh my god That was really like a modern very, very, modern interpretation of what makes this region unique. I’ve just had such an amazing time in this province, and I really don’t think this is going to be the last time that we’re in Quebec. I certainly hope not. If you guys like this video, don’t forget to give it a thumbs-up. Share it with your friends, and subscribe to Vagabrothers for new travel videos every week and don’t forget this is the last video in a six-part series. So if you haven’t seen the other videos from Quebec, go check them out. They’re links in the description box In the meantime, remember to stay curious, keep exploring, and we’ll see you guys on the road. Peace. Later. I can’t feel my face when I’m riding. But I love it. Really love it. Boom. Wear a helmet! Bif.

    you should definitely come in July (beginning of july) for the FEQ (festival d'été de Québec).. this is the best music festival in Quebec. over 300 shows in 11 days. 90$ for the pass that gives you access to ALL the shows. I personally know the girl that work for the FEQ for the press and the artist I'd you want a special treatment 🙂 contact me if your interested

  14. Jonathan Green says:

    Great series on my ancestral home of Quebec. And you even visited during winter! Rock on. I've been in all seasons and love it so much. Canadians are awesome people and that came through during the series.

    My family is from Montreal and you really captured what I love about the city. Such a great job.

    For those interested in another great Quebec spot – check out Mont Tremblant. Fun in the winter and warmer months. I was there last June and had a blast.

    I hope you guys visit other Canadian provinces in the future. Canada is a great value for USA travelers right now (1 USD gets you 1.30 CAD as of today) so your travel dollars go far. In 2017, Canada will mark 150 years of Confederation. Lots of great events planned.

    Amazing series, sad to see it come to an end! I'm a snowboarder turned skier, and Alex it made me nervous to see you ride without a helmet, hope this was a one off! (this coming from someone who forgot her helmet one day and went up anyway and ended up getting a concussion).

    You guys are pretty good boarding through trees in the pow. I could show you how to break your ribs doing that, but I've already been there, done it. Great footage boarding (love the slo-mo), but also the time lapse (ferry arriving) and drone shots of the island are terrific. Great combo! Thanks!!!

    slowly zooming in on someone during a static talking shot is a best a little distracting, and at worst emphasizes mistakes and hesitations/um ah in speech.
