If a single winter’s day is all you have at Mont-Tremblant, spend it wisely. Start at Crêperie Catherine in Vieux Tremblant for breakfast and order the crêpe Benedict with eggs, Swiss cheese, crab, Black Forest ham and béchamel. Then purchase a lift pass and head for the gondola for a day of alpine skiing.
Grab a quick lunch mid-afternoon at Grand Manitou at the top of the mountain, but don’t eat too much because you have to finish skiing. Once you’ve fully explored the slopes, be sure to stop into Le Shack near the base of the gondola for après-ski. Order the nachos Blackcomb, a huge, delicious serving of chips with melted cheese, black olives, bacon bits, hot banana peppers, salsa and sour cream.
Next, take a five-minute drive to Scandinave Spa to soak in the outdoor hot pools. Or, if you have children, spend an hour or two playing in the indoor pools at the family-friendly Aquaclub in Tremblant village.
To end your action-filled day, bring the kids to Tremblant’s Pizzatéria for a casual but tasty dinner of thin-crust pies that are topped with everything from Italian bacon, spinach, onions, tomatoes, pine nuts and goat cheese, to shrimp, ginger, sun-dried tomatoes and satay sauce. For a romantic dinner for two, savor rich raclette or fondue at the more intimate La Savoie restaurant.
