Mont-Tremblant: A week of skiing, mountains, and good food

Although the beach front view and the promise of a tan were tempting, for spring break this year my friends and I decided to travel even further north than Maine and go skiing in Canada at Mont-Tremblant.

The views were unreal with Lac Tremblant running along at the foot of the mountain and a wide range of mountains and clouds along the horizon. The hotel we stayed at was right at the foot of the mountain and the small town had plenty of restaurants and boutiques for the eager vacationer. It really was the picturesque ski mountain. But to top it all off, we had a kitchen and got to COOK. Colby has good food, but it is amazing how good some fresh veggies in a home-cooked meal taste.

Nothing like some sweet potato fries to top it all off.
