Team Dad Shred Takes on the Chic Chocs

Dogy Down Films hit the road in early February. This is the edit.

Every good road trip begins with a helping of uncertainty as to what exactly lies ahead. When you’ve been someplace before, it doesn’t have quite the same feeling as that first time into the unknown. And even if you know people have been there before and skied it before, it just feels different when it’s your first time.

And so it was that our group of backcountry adventuring dads found ourselves loading up the car for an all-nighter, 500+ mile drive to Quebec’s Gaspe Peninsula and the Chic-Choc Mountains. As if to send us off in a fitting mindset after what has been a rough season so far out east, it was raining and 50 degrees on the third night of February in Burlington, VT. Such has been the 2015-16 season, where we’ve been paying back the piper for last winter’s all-time conditions.

50 hours and 15 miles of touring later, the only question that remained was: how soon can we go back?
