mont tremblant

We got some great questions to our original post on Ironman Mont Tremblant, so here is some additional information:

Update: Our favorite bakery in the village mountain closed. Watch for our update on FB.

There are two good places for pasta and plain red sauce for Saturday night. In the old village, there is Ital Deli. We love it there. They just moved to a new location next to the hardware store on the right side when headed to the run trail. Make sure to make reservations. For those who want to carb load from their homes, rentals or suite kitchenettes, check out Mile pâtés in Mont Tremblant, which used to be called St. Jovite. They have yummy homemade pasta and sauce with lots of organics. Well worth it! I made it last night for dinner and my husband actually asked me to pick it up again for Saturday night.

Activities: The mountain is beautiful so the gondola is great if you don’t want to hike one way. White water rafting is fun if you like that, again pretty. If you want to relax, rent a boat or hire a charter to fish on Lac Tremblant; it is so big and beautiful. Kayaking is also enjoyable. You can often see me directly across from the village by the waterfall. The Luge is just plain fun; my husband and I are like kids on it. The zip line is okay as far as zip lines go, not great so depends if you have done them before. We also take walks to the waterfall on the mountain and sit and take in the scenery and hang in the old village at the bike shop for tea.

If you need to get someone from Montreal, check out Mont Tremblant Express. You could also look into Porter airlines. They sometimes have great rates under $100 from NYC area airports. My kids take them up here.
