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!
