Over the weekend, we traveled to the cutest ski village in Quebec, Canada called Mont Tremblant. I was not too familiar with the mountain until Jimmy’s parents suggested we visit for a long weekend. It wasn’t long before I began my research looking at activities to do and places to eat. Even as a non-skier or snowboarder, there was an abundance of things to engage in. For the adventurous, there is snowshoeing, dog sledding, ice skating, and snowmobiling. For those looking to lay low, there are Scandinavian baths, tubing, ice fishing, and sleigh rides.
The village itself is walkable and easy to get around. Situated on the base of the mountain are several shoppes where you can buy anything from a scarf and sweater to an ornament and a stuffed animal. One of my favorite stores was called The Little Blue House. It was filled with adorable clothing and accessories for children printed with moose, bears, and beavers. We purchased The Busy Beaver Book and look forward to reading it every night at bedtime!
After visiting a few shoppes, we ventured into Au Grain de Cafe, a local coffee shop with beautiful decor and delicious treats. I indulged in the 1/2 hot chocolate and 1/2 coffee with cinnamon sprinkled on top and it was very yummy. Once we were warm enough, we grabbed our beverages to go and headed for the much discussed BeaverTail. There is only one spot to get these and there is always a long line. The wait goes quick and the recommendation did not disappoint. The treat was SO good. Imagine a fluffier crepe yet flatter than fried dough. You can choose from a few different topping combinations ranging from nutella to oreo cookies. The classique was my favorite with just a simple sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar. We ended up getting a BeaverTail each day of our trip because we couldn’t get enough!
