Quebec, Mont Tremblant

A couple of weekends back we had a long weekend and took advantage of time off to travel as we wrap up our assignment here in Canada. Last year we traveled to Quebec for a week and I still need to blog about that adventure! Anyhow one of the places we stayed and loved was Mont Tremblant ski resort.

One of the most wonderful things about staying in Quebec is it's the next best thing to going to France if you can't make it there. The food is fantastic and to hear people saying "Bonjour" and speaking French. And they are friendly oh the hospitality.

Here is the view we had from our hotel balcony. The fall colors did not disappoint!

If you go make sure you get an all inclusive pass to ride the gondola from your hotel booking. And if you have small children plan to ride this a bunch of times!

Great views at the top of the Mountain.

Great photo op too!

We got lucky with a decent family picture.

A view from the lookout tower. I stayed behind my sinuses were bothering me, remember I was under the weather on this trip and came back with bronchitis!

Here you can see the luge ride from our gondola and Daddy took the kids on it several times. Master liked it but Stuntwoman did not!

One happy boy!

Doesn't it look like fun?

They had a great time!

This was popular too.

So to recap even though it was a pretty long drive from Toronto it was worth the trek to enjoy the fall colors and activities. There are many restaurants shops up and down the resort. I would highly recommend visiting and we hope to come back again.

I'm glad we took the time to go it was worth it. Good times and good memories!

WoW, what a culture shock it must of been for Texas to Canada. The country is just beautiful up there. I'm and Ozark country farm chick who lives on a large(nothin'compared to Tx.) working farm nestled in the hill and hollers of Missouri. You have a beautiful family framing those pictures.

Ya'll have a beautifully blessed Monday!!!

Looks like great fun! You're the second bloggy pal to go to Mont Tremblant within one month. I would love to visit other places in Quebec beyond Montreal one day... :)
