Visited Le Massif first in the early 80's - impressed with powder, views and runs
fast forward about 27 years
My mistake, went during March break - way too many people, on the hill and in the chalets
All runs funnel down to base of mountain - dangerous because there are novices, intermediates and experts all vying for narrow base, so I avoided skiing to base of mountain.
Black diamonds were all mogully, not everyone likes moguls, so might have been nice if half the run was groomed.
Really enjoyed Bouchard, Lavoie and Simard, especially first runs before the crowds started.
Perhaps I will return when there are not the crowds
