SENIORS TRAVEL TO QUEBEC



Seniors Head Off to Mont-Tremblant

I was immediately attracted to this site as it came up on my iPhone,as a great place to visit.  Knowing the French verb TREMBLER meant to tremble or to shake, I just has to check out what is shaking up seniors at Mont-Tremblant. Mont-Tremblant is derived from local Algonquins who referred to it as the “trembling mountain”.

Since the 18th century, people have come to admire the beautiful landscapes the region of Mont-Tremblant has to offer. The nearby Mont-Tremblant National Park, proud defender of the fauna and flora, welcomes thousands of  visitors each year.  Massive mountains, including the highest summit in the Laurentians, they say will change your perspective of the world.

Three villages will charm senior visitors with the diversity of their restaurants and their cultural environment. Mont-Tremblant’s region is not only a mountain, it’s also and mostly every element orbiting around the highest peak in the Laurentian Mountains.

The Parc National du Mont-Tremblant, or Mont-Tremblant Park, is a protected nature area and part of Quebec’s network of national parks. It alone represents close to 20 per cent of all the protected areas of Quebec. Mountains, lakes and forests provide an idyllic setting, especially in the more rustic northern side.

 Seniors Discover the Aspen of Canada

As winter approaches, senior skiers will want to keep Mont-Tremblant in your plans and Notez Bien, Mont-Tremblant is an internationally renowned and multi award winning ski destination. 

Senior skiers will find 94 runs serviced by 13 state-of-the-art lifts as the Mont-Tremblant dominates a stunningly beautiful countryside. A paradise where ski and snowboard enthusiasts are spoiled: 18 acres of ramps, rails and jumps as well as an Olympic calibre superpipe.

Skiers have flocked to Mont-Tremblant since its first chairlift and lodge opened in 1939. At Mont-Tremblant, those who live for the great outdoors and love to breathe clean air have the perfect year-round playground. The area is active all year long not just for skiers in the winter but also for many fun events in the summer.

Seniors will enjoy a large variety of exciting musical, sportive and charitable events like the Tremblant International Blues Festival and Tremblant’s 24 hours of Skiing and Cycling.

Mont-Tremblant is actually divided into two parts. The original village of Mont-Tremblant now goes by the name of The Village, but these days it’s The Resort (aka the Pedestrian Village), some 13 km away directly at the foot of the mountain, where the action is.

 TripAdvisor can help to prepare you for your visit.  You will discover 20 things to see and do as well as a nice choice for dining in one of the 120 top-notch restaurants. Golf is also a major with the Le Diable Golf Course where you can tee off on one the best courses in Canada. 18-holes, 7,056-yards, with impeccable greens and all the prep time you need to line-up each shot, thanks to 12-minute start time intervals.

Enjoy your week at Mont-Tremblant.  jeb
