MONT TREMBLANT, QUEBEC

Well, we have been gone for a bit and have just recovered from hosting two birthdays (my mom's and daughter's) and a few continued celebrations for my birthday (which was a few weeks ago) and a snow day! Anyway-- I am trying to blog a little and miss reading your blogs.
We had a wonderful trip to Mont Tremblant, Quebec. We are kind of last minute, bargain shoppers. We looked at the weather, airfare prices, and ski packages, and even with the weak US dollar, Mont Tremblant was an excellent bargain. It has a gondola, several high speed lifts, several long runs, and a great, charming village. After much debate, we decided to stay at a lovely, new ski-in/ski-out condo called L'Altitude. For eastern skiing, this place is the best! We actually drove (12 hours) with an overnight in Toronto. We ran into another family from my daughter's school (these people own a condo there) and had some great meals with them. Would I fly here...probably not... since we can fly out west for the same price. But, there is a European flare that makes this place special.

I'm glad you liked Mt Tremblant, I live 1hr and a half away. We usually go up once a year....Lots to do especially in the summer!

Looks gorgeous! I've met some great Canadians here so a trip up there (once I'm back in the US) is definitely in the works.

We were there a number of years ago for skiing, staying in a beautiful townhouse minutes form the town. It was a lovely visit.
