Adventure Near Montreal: Mont Tremblant

I’m planning a vacation to Montreal, and while I’ve heard lots about its urban charms, I don’t know much about its wilderness access. Where can I play outside within a couple hours of the city?

A short hop north of Montreal, Mont Tremblant is eastern Canada’s premier ski resort. And, like Whistler and other big-name spots, it’s transformed itself into a year-round outdoor hub. In summer, mountain biking, paddling, hiking, golf, rock climbing, and an aerial ropes course are all on offer, as is a Tremblant Iron Man. In winter, there’s downhill and cross-country skiing, dogsledding, snowmobiling, ice climbing, and steaming outdoor hot tubs ringed with snow.
