A few weeks ago Craig and I headed up north to spend a few days in Canada. Our first stop was Montreal where we spent a night at Le Place D’Armes Hotel in Old Montreal. The city was so beautiful all lit up and decorated for the holidays. Despite the Canadians saying it was “warm” for December, Craig and I thought it was FREEZING. If you’re thinking of going to Canada in December or January make sure to pack many, many warm layers, hats and gloves.

Our hotel was right across from the Notre Dame Basilica and walking distance to the waterfront and other great shops and restaurants. We only stayed for a night but I’d love to go back for a longer stay.

Our final destination was Mont Tremblant. I had many fond memories of traveling to Mont Tremlant as a kid, when we used to vacation there every winter  as a family and snowboard for a week. I wasn’t sure what to expect of the quaint village since it has grown so much since we used to go, but in many ways not much has changed, and that’s what I love about Mont Tremblant.

Tremblant has the feeling of a European ski village, but in Quebec. One of my favorite things about it is that once you arrive for your vacation, you never have to leave. We parked the truck in the heated garage under the hotel where we stayed, Le Sommet de Neiges, and only left once to visit Le Scandinave Spa, which is only a 5 minute drive.

We spent the first day walking around the village and exploring the shops and restaurants. Everything you could possibly want or need is located right in the village (grocery store, restaurants, cafes, shops, movie theater).

At night the village is  just so pretty. We managed to go the only December in years where Tremblant had very little snow but typically it would be a winter wonderland this time of year. They have had a lot of snowfall since our trip.

The skiing/snowboarding conditions are hands down one of the best in the Northeast in my opinion. Most if not all of the snow was man made while we we there but typically there is tons of powdery snow and wide open trails, I’m hoping we can go back in late February or March to get some more snowboarding in before the end of the season.

I finally invested in a one piece snowsuit this year and it was the BEST decision I’ve ever made. I’m always cold so this snowsuit kept me super warm and dry the entire time.

You can’t really beat the view as you’re going down the slopes at Mont Tremblant.

Craig was shooting pictures while he was snowboarding. I was impressed.

A few recommendations on where to eat while in Tremblant (see all the winter activities here):

Eat

Cocco Pazzo – Upscale Italian, cozy atmosphere

Casey’s Resto-Bar – Great pub food, sports bar feel

Fluide Juice Bar – Yes, Tremblant has a juice bar!

Microbrasserie La Diable – Tremblant has their own micro-brewery. Great apres-ski spot for comfort food and a beer.

O Wok – We loved this place so much we ate here twice! And I would’ve gone back again. I’m still craving the red curry, so, so delicious.

Beavertails – All I can say is these are dangerous. You can’t have just one.

  7. I visited Tremblant in March this year for the first time! I absolutely loved the village and how you never hard to leave. (Except for Scandinave, exactlyyy!!) I was also a big fan of O Wok and La Diable!
