Of course, most are well aware of the sports-related activities associated to the Mont-Tremblant area. It’s a prime ski destination that’s on must-go lists of athletes and amateurs alike. However, some people are not big skiers yet love to be in the mountains. If you’re looking forward to making memories in the mountains, but more prone to staying in the village than skiing down mountainsides, consider the following activities.
Rest and Relaxation
Leave racing down the mountain slopes for the athletes. Even if you are one for activity, you need some rest and relaxation time too. The Scandinavian spa is an indulgent experience that you can’t find just anywhere. And, if you’re feeling especially restful and don’t feel like exiting your room, you can take advantage of massage services offered by selected Mont-Tremblant accommodations.
Window Shopping and Buying
Now that you’re feeling relaxed and flexible, start slow and take a casual stroll around the shopping district for a stint of window shopping and possible purchasing. To date, over thirty-five stores inhabit the Mont-Tremblant Village. Whether you prefer quaint shops or mainstream suppliers, both and all in between are represented in the shopping area. Grab items you need for your stay, those on your Christmas list, or out-of-season trinkets you can use later in the year.
Eat and Drink
All that shopping is sure to work up an appetite. It’s a good thing the Village hosts over fifty places to enjoy a beverage and fill your stomach. Conveniently, you have a choice of fine dining to casual atmospheres. You can enjoy a few beverages at a local bar while other family members are off shopping or skiing, or you can dine out with the entire clan at a place with a menu that appeals to the majority.
Party Like a Local
When the sun sets the evening comes alive at a number of local hangouts, replete with those in search of a good time. Learn to party like a local as you hop to one hotspot to the next. Even if you’re not one who enjoys an alcoholic beverage, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to listen to DJ’s, bands, and let loose on the dancefloor. You haven’t partied in Montreal until you’ve had a night out in Mont-Tremblant.
Win at the Casino
If you’re vacationing at Mont-Tremblant, you’re already a winner, yet if you want to push your luck, try a hand at the tables inside the Casino de Mont-Tremblant. If your hand is particularly hot, you can win enough for an extended stay or cover the expenses of your present trip. Of course, there is plenty of other entertainment to be had at the casino, including eateries and live musical entertainment.
Of course, many come for the outdoor activities, but if you’re in the Mont-Tremblant area, you can fill days without even leaving the immediate Village. If a non-skier in your family or crew is a point of worry, you won’t feel guilty bringing them along. There’s plenty of eating, shopping, relaxing, partying, and sightseeing to be had within Mont-Tremblant Village.
