Regarding neighbourhood activities, times have changed. For many reasons, it is more difficult to organize activities for lake residents only. For this year, we again encourage you to participate in the various local festivities of La Conception, such as the Fête des voisins, the softball tournament to benefit the parish, the Détour culturel, the Fête des neiges, or by volunteering for the Mont-Tremblant Ironman. Some of us already participate in these community activities and find that they are great opportunities to meet new people and for family fun.
Moisture exchange between the snowpack and the overlying air mass is accompanied by latent heat transfer that is influenced by vapor pressure gradient and air wind. Rain on snow can add significant amounts of thermal energy to the snowpack. A generally insignificant heat exchange takes place by conduction between the snowpack and the ground. The small temperature change from before to after a snowfall is a result of the heat transfer between the snowpack and the air. As snow degrades, its surface can develop characteristic ablation textures such as suncups or penitentes.
