Sad to see winter go?
When you think about vacationing in Tremblant, Qc, you think nothing else but skiing, right? Wrong!
Spring offers a whole new look on outdoor activities in the most peaceful and relaxing way... Imagine taking a stroll in the village to the shushing sounds of the swollen streams and rivers surrounding Lake Moore. Enjoying the chirping of the birds, the awakening scents of nature revealed by the melting snow and welcoming the warming sunrays with a sigh of relief.... Aaaah!!! Spring is finally here!
For those who enjoy a slow and relaxing pace of life, spring is the perfect time to visit Tremblant... enjoying the village, the great shopping deals on winter ski wear fashion and equipment, not having to line-up to the town restaurants usually buzzed with summer tourists, enjoying an early opened terrace, or even visit a sugar bush for a unique Quebec experience and succulent taste of maple syrup and toffee... at Cabane à sucre à la montage.
Other spring activities you might not have thought about...
Fishing and Hiking – As early as April, the Pourvoirie Baroux which offers over 22km of hunting and fishing territory offers early fishing trips or at the Centre touristique et éducatif des Laurentides opened from May to October offers 36 kms of trails marked with visual information signs accessible to dogs on a leash + 1 km accessible to stroller and people with wheelchair as well as offering fishing for the whole family.
What a better time to relax and pamper yourself to a day or half day at the spa... the following are famous in the Tremblant area such as: Amerispa Laurentians; Le Scandinave and Spas sur le lac
Golf – taking advantage of the early birds special at most challenging golf courses such at Le Diable or, a little gentler, Le Giant. These majestic championship courses will take your breath away. Le Diable opens on May 1st and Le Géant, May 15th.
Visiting the surrounding towns and villages of the area from St-Jovite to St-Sauveur (40 minutes south) driving through Val-David and Val-Morin and Ste-Agathe des Monts...
Enjoy a great spring!
