Winter has arrived and you are planning a seasonal vacation in Mont Tremblant, located approximately 130 kilometers northwest of Montreal and 140 kilometers northeast of Ottawa, Ontario. The city of 9,494 people offers several cold season activities that have been spreading by word of mouth for several years. The following list would include activities directly related to cold weather, although some of them can be performed in hot or cold weather. Here is the list:
Relax to the max at Scandinave Spa Mont Tremblant.
If you don’t like skiing very much or if you are not considered an expert in the field, relaxing would be the best thing to do during your visit to this place. This spa is located on seven acres on the banks of the Devil’s River and is open year round.
Included in the facilities you can find Scandinavian steam baths with whirlpools, Nordic and thermal waterfalls, hot and cold plunges, Finnish dry saunas, as well as an attractive bar for healthy snacks and juices in a hurry. In addition, there are areas for relaxation with hammocks, terraces, solariums and fireplaces. In addition to all the facilities, massages are included in the Spa.
To practice this activity, the region has over 100 kilometers of trails. In addition, five cross-country ski areas offer four rental centers, and four ticket booths to go between classic, skate, or tour. After finishing one of the choices, you can warm up with a cold coffee at one of the centers’ cafes.
Ski and snowboard
With a total of 96 trails, 14 lifts and 269 hectares of skiable terrain, Mont Tremblant offers an incredible experience for alpine skiers and snowboarders. Four mountain slopes offer different qualities, from steep practiced trails to more expert trails. These are the activities with the largest number of participants in the region. An advantage of skiing and snowboarding is the clear skies, while at the top of the mountains you can enjoy the view of Lake Tremblant and the village. And if the last elevator is taken, the sunset would be an exciting sight.
Dog sledding tour
From early December to late March, basic sledding training is provided before you gather and harness your own pack of dogs and make the six-mile journey through the snowy forest. Usually, this activity is done in pairs? depending on several factors such as weather and weight distribution. It’s a two-hour experience and it ends with a cup of hot chocolate in a log cabin in the woods.
Go ice fishing and other ice-related activities.
Try ice fishing and you’ll share in a historic Canadian pastime. The town’s activity center organizes an organized trip to the area’s frozen lakes and guided by expert ice fishermen, you can catch fish such as poke, perch and smallmouth bass. Other ice-related activities include ice climbing and ice skating.
By using wide tires and taking advantage of Mont Tremblant’s trails, biking in the snow is an outdoor activity that can be done instead of skiing. A warning must be made for expert riders in hot weather; fat biking requires much more effort than riding in the summer.
Play at the casino.
So, sports is not something you are very proud of, and you prefer to stay indoors avoiding the cold and snow, the Casino is your place to stay. Numerous machines, baccarat, poker and blackjack are the main attractions of this gambling place and in addition, there is an Altitude restaurant that offers the best view of the hills.
Buggy adventure in the dunes
Skiing, snowboarding and other snow-related activities are the main reason to visit Mont Tremblant, but there are other options for people who don’t like these events.
One of them goes for a buggy ride in the snow. There are two ways to participate in this activity: first, you can go for a walk with a guide who will take you through the woods around Mont-Tremblant National Park. On the other hand, the other choice is the adrenaline ride where you are the only driver in this adventure.
It was a means of transportation used in Quebec for ages, but today it has become the ideal way for families and adventurers to discover the original winter nature. In the region, there are 36 trails spread over the five districts where you can do “Raquette” as it is called in the region. Whether you take easy trails like Lac des Femmes or more challenging trails in the Parc National du Mont-Tremblant – like Sentir de la Roche, stop from time to time to listen to the absolute silence and watch the snow fall gently to the ground.
Take a break in the snow
After a day in the mountains in cold weather and a day of intense activity, it’s nice to get away from the cold for a while and visit the European-style village in the area for some shopping. There are more than 35 stores where you can buy clothes and even stores selling maple products ranging from syrup to ice cream to maple butter. But the options for getting out of the snow in Mont-Tremblant are not limited to shopping.
The aforementioned Casino is another way to temporarily escape the cold, and other options include eating in the city’s many restaurants and cafes for a good meal to end (or start) a day.
And after a long day full of activities, the best way to end it is in a log cabin in front of a fireplace while sharing a nice cup of hot chocolate with your favorite person.
And, certainly, you will spend an unforgettable and memorable winter with your couple and your children in the future.
