Snowshoeing on Mont Tremblant. QC

Gord and I headed up the mountain after lunch with our snowshoes

This is the base of Mont Tremblant.

We got in line to go up on the gondola ... it was less than a five minute wait.

One time tickets are $20

The temperature at the top of the mountain was -24C/-11.2F ... there was definitely a windchill but I don't know what it was.

I was prepared for the cold this year and brought hand warmers for my mittens.  I'm glad I did because it was freakin' cold!

Here are some pictures from the top of the mountain.

Le Grand Manitou which has a snack bar and pro shop
Looking down at the village of Mont Tremblant

We headed westward.

Can you tell how cold I was?!
We headed towards the flag at the top of that hill
Made it to the lookoff!
We kept going

We headed back to Le Grand Manitou for a rest and to warm up.

The bottle of water I'd had in my bag had frozen!

Off again ... we headed eastward.

Looking back to where we'd started

Back where we started, here are Gord and I.

We took the gondola back to the base of the mountain.

Yes, it was freezing cold but we had a lot of fun!

I didn't know you could go snowshoeing in Tremblant. I thought it was just a ski/snowboard place. I've been dying to go to Tremblant. One of these days...
