Every season has something special to offer. Winter for some truly fabulous skiing, spring for lovely hikes andm treks,summer for the sun and the sand (the beaches and the endless beach parties!) and fall for a myriad of outdoor activities and the changing of the colours. The fall foliage is one of the most gorgeous ones in Canada.

2. THEY SAY DON’T GO CHASING WATERFALLS BUT IF YOU’RE IN TREMBLANT, DEFINITELY GO CHASE WATERFALLS

Confession: I did NOT even know there are stunning waterfalls in Mont Tremblant. We’ve been going to Mont Tremblant for many, many years. In fact, E used to lived there as he used to study and work at the Jim Russel Racing School for Professional Race Training or Improving Defensive Driving and Le-Circuit Montreal.

It was only recently that I discovered that there are gorgeous waterfalls in the Mont Tremblant region. We hiked up to see the La Diable Waterfalls, which you can view from high up – via the Panoramic Gondola that takes you up in a scenic ride all the way to the summit!

 

 

Whichever way you get up to the waterfalls, you can feel the immediate change in physically and mentally. Aside from the obvious beauty of nature, outdoor excursions like this not only fills your lungs with fresh air but it also instantly envelopes your body with that sense of calm and serenity.

I absolutely adore being in Mont Tremblant. A few summers ago, we used to go even more regularly and would stay at different hotels in the area. One of my favourites is the Hotel de Voyageurs as it has those balconies (check out the photo below, ours was the beige building with the big balcony!) that opens right up to the main street at the Mont Tremblant Cabriolet!

GET TO MONT TREMBLANT IN STYLE AND LUXURY WITH 2016 FORD EXPLORER

We rolled down the village in style this time with this year’s 2016 Ford Explorer. Ford overhauled the fifth generation Explorer with a new refined look, cutting edge technology, EcoBoost engine and luxuriousΒ interior. I know I’ve mentioned this before but there’s a heavenly massage system built in the driver’s seat and the passenger’s seat! This helps increase blood flow and help prevent back pain, especially on a long drive. Now, which other SUV does that?

That’s seriously all you need to know about the 7-seater Ford Explorer, but in fact, there’s more!Β
