    Sorry, here it is

    Magnifique banc de neige - (eBay.ca item 120200190615 end time 28-Dec-07 18:46:38 EST)

    Here is the translation of the description :

    Located in St-Eustache, only 15 minutes away from Montreal, I'm offering a wonderful snow bank to the highest bidder. The snow bank is about 7 feet in height. It is sold with the surrounding snow (about 625 square feet). Ideal for ski slopes or for maple taffy on snow next spring...

    Reason for selling: I have received too many deliveries for this time of year and other deliveries are to be expected during the upcoming months. Personally, I can't take anymore, my storage is full and I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Therefore I want someone else to take advantage of it. The winner will have to take possession before the end of January 2008. Please take note that the quantity may vary depending on the pick-up date. Sold as is. No returns or refunds.

    ^^ The good thing though is that he's donating everything to a charity for sick children. The auction started off at $0.99 and is now at $2,850.00

    ^^ Actually that's me doing a quick translation I did it very quickly and didn't bother doing any editing. That's what happens when you translate something in 5 minutes flat

    I saw that, I live in Montreal and the Montreal Gazette had a feature on the guy as well as a photo of his snowbank. While I didn't put in a bid for his snow, I have my own to sell....as a fellow Quebecer you probably aren't interested, but maybe I can target some of our friends here who live in the southern US?! Hmmmm...
