Quebec Mountain Adventure

Each year, the we send a group to the Groulx Mountains in Northeastern Quebec on a telemark skiing and winter-camping adventure. The group is led by Outdoor Programs deputy director Brian Kunz, who has been leading the trip since 1992. The trip is 10 days long and takes place during spring break. The trip is open to all members of the Dartmouth community, including both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty, staff and other members of the Dartmouth community. People of all skiing ability are encouraged on the trip, and even novice skiers have had great past experiences.
