A mini snowmobile experience…
The temperature was set to plummet to a pretty severe -35 on Mt Tremblant, however, there were a couple of activities that needed to be done before bedtime…
Taking the ski lift up to the village was great, the kids absolutely loved it. Arriving in the village you are welcomed by the hustle and bustle of skiers everywhere, adorning vibrant outfits, people of all ages and all abilities, and the fact that Mt Tremblant was dressed in stunning snow just made the whole place more spectacular.

A short video of an impressive team, very effective and efficient. Gives you an idea of how much snow had fallen and how much had already been shifted and that still needed to be moved.
We finally arrived after about two hours driving from Montreal to Mt Tremblant, and as you may appreciate from the photos below, it was a spectacular welcome. Continue reading “Arrival and welcome from Mt Tremblant, Quebec “
Ok, so we survived the road trip to Montreal, it went really well actually. The snow had fallen the night before in Montreal, and they had a lot of it…
So here we go, a road trip to Montreal with the family…to visit more family which is always a joy. We are packed, car is booked, snacks are ready, books and CDs are selected, toys have been chosen… Continue reading “Leaving for Montreal…oh, better check the weather then?”
It basically snowed all day today in Toronto, the nice type of snow, the snow that is pure, soft and absolutely perfect for making things and of course, having snowball fights. Continue reading “The serenity of snow”
I have been told by family and friends, that this last time last year, was terribly cold in Toronto and the snow had already established itself and remained for quite a while, quite a while being several months. We received some snow yesterday, a tease I would like to describe it as. I have been in Canada before during the winter, I have experienced -35degrees in Kitchener and not too far from that temperature in Toronto too, this was several years ago. However this is a different experience, the anticipation has excitement and nervousness weaved into it, along with a few other emotions, strange I know.
The first few photos are from outside my brother in laws house and the others are from my parents in laws apartment. The last time I posted photos from their apartment was to show the lovely view which was fantastic and the views were far reaching. These photos show the gentle sprinkle of snow over Toronto, almost like when icing sugar decorates a cake for the finishing touches, except these are not finishing touches over Toronto, this is a tease, what is to come, from what I have been told (and have briefly experienced before) will be more like icing on top of a cake, frosting as some would say (a more relevant term I think)…looks inviting and tastes sweet but it will be bitter…bitterly cold…we already have the Brrrrr effect!
