This is the first leg of the trip OS for my partner and I, we have hired a car in NYC and will be driving to Montreal, then on the 19th December to Mont Tremblant. On the 21st Dec we leave Mont Tremblant to drive to NYC.
My only concern is the road condition from Montreal to Mont Tremblant. It would be appreciated if you could provide some advice as to the road conditions from Montreal to Mont Tremblant? some tips on Winter driving? I know the usual cautious approach, slower than usual, conservative driving etc but is there anything in particular that I should note for the drive from Montreal to Mont Tremblant?
I have queried whether our hire car will come with a set of snow tyres - is this essential for the drive?
Tyre Chains - if the vehicle doesn't come with snow tyres, will tyre chains be sufficient?
I've never driven in such a climate like Canada before. We get some snow here in the southern regions, but nothing like the depths experienced in North America.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.Edited: 12:45 am, November 17, 2011
