    they are kinda like tourtière Tourtière - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia but made with all kinds of mushrooms, meats, cheese, vegetables, eggs, etc... it's more like pies of yore, a more traditional cuisine. i bought one of those pies in the picture to have with dinner tonight...

    i call it raw... the area is one big rock garden. with all the rain/snow melt you get, the trail washes out fast on the mountain. then you come in with the excavator during spring and reshape the trail with jumps, berms etc (dh trails 7.5 km's long might i add)... it's how they do things here, it works for them and they have good reason why they do it. the trails are challenging, beautiful, unique, and quite tough... that's why i enjoy the area so much... oh and they hold a world cup here.

    Just adding a few more pics from QC and MSA.

    To the east of the Marche there was a 3D Image Mill and to the west Cirque du Soleil were performing les Chemins Invisibles under the highway overpass



    Another beautiful attraction along the trail


    and a pic of me after crossing a bridge and rolling over a rooty/ rocky section of La Vietnam

    La Vietnam was the trail that these two gals were riding the day after the World Cup in MSA. On those hardtails. After riding to the top of the access road. That would be MHP and her sister CP.

    we've done that in the spring through what snow was left on our all mountains, though we went up the trails instead (lift was not running). there was a couple cross country riders out on the trails saturday. la vietnam has been reworked now and there are alot of jumps and doubles so dh riders are hitting it at speed. though the sight lines are pretty good so you can slow down if you see an xc rider toodling down the trail. you give a yell and they move aside, otherwise you have to stop and wait awhile until they reach the bottom. same thing happens at blue. xc riders often misjudge how fast dh'ers go through sections, so you just give xc'ers more room and keep everything safe.

    Usually DH or AM bikes are so loud that you can hear them about 2-3 minutes behind you on the MSA trails. I was riding L’Arche du Boisée on an XC bike a couple of years ago and I could hear the big bikes rattling down behind me with lots of time to pick an optimum spot to move to one side.

    good for you, that's one of my biggest fears is hitting a slower rider (it would be ugly). though you never know if they are wearing earbuds. safety first.

    People who use ear buds while riding on trail networks are Darwin award candidates.

    Of course with any kind of DH or freeride trail (or descending XC trail for that matter) you always have that risk of running into a critter, a slower rider, or running over a rider who has gone down or had a major mechanical, I find it's never a good idea to ride with the assumption that the trail will always be clear beyond any obstructed view. At least on a trail network like MSA, you don't have to worry about hikers on the bike trails.

    one of the things i try to teach people is to pull off to the side right away if you stop on a dh trail.

    though when dhing at blue you have to be extra vigilant with the sheer number of tourist wandering about. it's like herding cats for the safety crew.
