From Friday February 24th to Sunday February 26th My friends and I went to Mont Tremblant in Quebec for the weekend to relax and snowboard.
We rented a van and took us about 10-11 hours to drive there. I know.. SUCH a long drive! But we left around 1pm from Toronto and the snowstorm decided to hit and it got worse the further East we went. Anyways, after the long drive, we arrived in the chalets in “Cap Tremblant“. It was absolutely beautiful there, even though it was blistering cold in the morning AND night. Out chalet was cozy, clean, and sooo nice!
Saturday was the boarding day. I am hardly a boarder, it was only my second time snowboarding and I wanted to stick to the bunny hills with the other newbies or younger kids ha ha. BUT all my friends were going up the mountain and I didn’t want to miss out so up I went… to the verrrrry TOP of Mont Tremblant. It was such a blizzard up there, being so high up and all… My friend and I decided to take the beginners route and it ended up being such a fun ride down – it took us over an hour though haha.
When we finally made it down, we couldn’t find the others so we hung out at the village. Had some Maple Taffee on snow, Smoke’s Poutinerie, Beavertails and a hotdog (Yes, we were hungry)!
They close the hills at 4pm so we decided to head back to the chalet, wash up, take a much needed nap and head back to the village at night for dinner. We ended up going to a restaurant that was closest to the parking lot called Spag & Co. If this restaurant wasn’t close to the parking lot there’s nothing else going for them. Their banner advertised as Pasta, Grill and Bar and 5 of us decided to go with pasta and my boyfriend had a pizza. I with I had the pizza. My seafood fettucini was… less than average. It was supposed to have lobster, scallops, and shrimps, but I guess they forgot to specify that it would be the tiny ones you get in a frozen assorted seafood bag. Their Clam Spaghetti was a Fail as well.
On Sunday morning, we went for breakfast back in the village (still freezing our butts off). Decided on a cozy, quaint place called Creperie Catherine. They had such a wide range of toppings for crepes & they were just delicious. Much better than the dinner from the night before! Walk around for the last time around the village before heading back to Toronto.
When we got back to Toronto (It only took us 5 – 6 hours this time), we headed for dinner at a Korean restaurant at Yonge & Finch for some Pork Bone Soup. And THAT marked the end of that wknd!
