The Laurentians may not be as lofty as the Rockies, but they are very beautiful and only an hour's drive from Montreal. They're a mecca for skiers in the winter, with several top-class ski resorts, chief among them Mont-Tremblant and its quaint tourist village (shops, eating places, top-notch hotels, condos to rent, a funiculaire to the top of the mountain,...

Take the autoroute 15 north out of Montreal and about 55 km minutes outside the City you will begin to enter the mountains and their forests of deciduous and conifer trees. Late September the weather turns cold enough to start the leave changing colours. You wont believe the variety of yellow/red/oranges/greys that will be displayed to you as far as... More

I love the rolling curving drive through those mountains. With so many ski restaurants and winter activities you can do just off the highways, it is a must to travel north to your destination. Sta Saveur, Mont Blanc, Mt Tremblant and the villages with some great shops...there is always something to see and do driving north from Montreal. The roads... More

This is the 16th consecutive year skiing at Mount Tremblant. We typically schedule our trip the first or second week in Feb. At this time, the slopes are not too crowded, and the rates are reasonable. The ski school is excellent, with highly qualified and friendly instructors.

We absolutely loved the sights all around us as this was so much different then the flat land we live in in Florida. The mountains were majestic and all covered with snow making this a wonderland for winter lovers. Even though the roads are pretty tough to drive on, the views all around make up for it. What a beautiful... More
