|| || I had exactly the same confusion about Gray Rocks around 1957. I planned just to ski Tremblant but first became confused between the ski area and the town (of the same name.) I stayed at an Auburg in St. Jovit, and followed signs to Mt. Tremblant in the AM. (I think I went to the town, but somehow found the ski area where they had stopped selling lift tickets because lift was not running (ski patrol had not checked out runs.) Rather than just wait, decided to check out ''North Face'' and followed signs in that direction. |
When I arrived (I think) I saw a sign for ''Gray Rocks'' which looked more like a resort, but there were a lift (single chair) and a big parking lot nearby. I decided to stay and ski . Lift took me to the top of Sissy Schuse run. Run was great for a beginner who
|wanted lots of practice. With the bitter cold, made frequent stops at the coffee hut, which had a sign outside saying it was built as a loggers' dining hall. Says Joe F..|
A group of us from Rochester, NY spent a week at the Gray Rocks ski resort in 1975. We took advantage of the daily lessons provided in our ski package. After eating a hardy breakfast each morning, we headed for the lift area. The lifts opened around 9:00 a.m. so we could get in some warm-up runs before taking our lesson. Lessons ran from 10:00
a.m.-noon with a 2 hour break for lunch. Afternoon lessons began at 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. The lifts remained open until 5:00. Snow making then took over. We enjoyed great meals that gave us energy for each day of skiing. On the Friday of our week's stay, our
instructor gave us the option of having our lesson at nearby Mount Tremblont. Needless to say, we took him up on his offer. What a thrill it was to ski such a great mountain!! All in all, our visit to Gray Rocks was a wonderful experience. Says Cathy.|
I used to travel every year to ski 1 wk. at Gray Rocks about Thanksgiving (3rd week in November), early 70s before snowboarding, and stayed at the Gray Rocks Inn. A GREAT ski area, hotel, and very good snow making. Mont Tremblant needs more snow to open but
Gray Rocks is a great early start. Says Jim McCutcheon.
I need some help: Around 1960 My wife and I visited mt. Tremblont to ski. We stayed in a little Auberg I St. Jovite and had planned to ski at the nearest ski area, but the snow was bad and we decided
to ski the north face, when we drove up there, I was confused because in looked like a resort rather than just a ski area. We saw a sign saying ''Grar rocks. We parked and skied a trail named ''sissy schuse'' using a single chair lift and having warm-up breaks
in a log hut, that looked like a lumber camp mess hall. Further we have a friend who says that she and her husband went there for their honeymoon and stayed in a ''cabin''. Here is my question: Is there anything in what I have described above that matches the
facts as they were around 1960. When we skied there, I thought that we were just skiing ''the North Face (rather than some other ski facility on the same mountain) , but now I think it may have been a gray Rocks ski area. Says an anonymous skier.
