Winter Mountains

RUSSIAN LANGUAGE WILL FOLLOW // На русском читайте ниже🙂

You don’t need to find a beach to beat the winter blues. There’s an invigorating, rosy-cheek feeling that comes from a day out among fresh air and snow—followed by something hot to drink. The mountains are a remote escape from humanity, a place to be alone and soak up the sunrise, the sunset or just the sun’s rays. Introvert Heaven.

When you think of skiing or snowboarding destinations around Montreal, Mont-Tremblant always comes to mind, as it should. Still, not all of us are big into hitting the slopes, and when we get dragged along to a weekend excursion to Mont-Tremblant, we end up just sitting in the chalet doing next to nothing while everyone else has a blast. That may be the fate of folks heading to other ski destinations, but Mont-Tremblant has much more to offer any individual, no matter their idea of fun!

Only 80 miles north of Montreal, Mont-Tremblant is a beckoning winter oasis carved out of the Laurentian mountain range. Mont-Tremblant has cobblestone streets lined with buildings that mimic Montreal’s Old City but with vibrant red, teal and marigold facades and roofs. The pedestrian village lies at the foot of the highest mountain of the Laurentians and offers some of the best slopes in eastern North America. But even if you don’t ski, the charming little resort town teems with activities, from dogsledding to fine dining.

Opened in 1939 by American Joe Ryan, Mont-Tremblant is the second-oldest ski resort in North America (Idaho’s Sun Valley nabs the No. 1 title). With 662 acres of diverse ski-able terrain, Mont-Tremblant offers 96 ski trails on four slopes. It’s a great place for beginners, with the south side’s 3.7-mile Nansen run—the mountain’s longest and a rare feature—providing a good introduction to the sport, and the local ski school is considered one of the best in North America. Veterans will be challenged with glades on the north side’s ”The Edge”. Ski season lasts from November through April. Even if you don’t ski, it’s worth a visit to the top of the 2,871-foot summit for an amazing vista of the Laurentians (go right when the lift opens at 7:45 a.m. to see the sunrise illuminating the surrounding snow-covered mountains with fewer skiers in the way).

    “ЗИМА В ГОРАХ

    Зима прекрасное время года, белоснежные просторы будто призывают нас начать жизнь с белого листа с новыми силами, с новыми проектами. Каждый, кто хоть раз побывал в горах зимой, надолго запомнит ту удивительную тишину и спокойствие. Отдых в горах непременно заряжает энергией и позитивом. Кто хочет вдохновения и новых сил приезжает именно в горы. …”
