This is a fun ride that anyone can do! Take the ski life up and then take the luge ride down the mountain. You can buy tickets a the ticket office. It's best to get an activity card if you are going to do more than one activity.
Ride the Caleche
While walking down from the base of the mountain to the entrance of the Mountain sector (instead of taking chair lifts for they were closed for the day), we saw this beautiful 2 horse caleche parked at a roundabout. We at once decided to take a ride.
The owners of the caleche, an old couple, were very friendly indeed. Knowing that we are originally from Pakistan, they were quite delighted. The lady told us that she has met a Pakistani family before who hired their Caleche. My daughter acted as a translator for they could only speak French.
Two percheron horses, Lyndsay and Dan, share the work. They are brought to this sector on a trailer from the farm. The owners have kept a picture album in the cabin and we found it to be very informative about the farm, different horses at work, and their family lineage.
The 40 minutes caleche ride took us from the heavily crowded sector where the croud waved at seeing us, to the Parc des Chutes, where we visited the water falls and had a beautiful view of Mont-Tremblant from the opposite side of the lake.
Mont Tremblant, the heart of the Laurentides
During the summer season, Mont Tremblant village is a nice place to go for a couple of days, to reach the Mont Tremblant national park 20km from the village, and to bike on the "Petit Train du Nord" path.
Peace and quite are a moto here, at least when it is ski off season!
This picture has been taken during the afternoon I spend on "Le Petit Train du Nord" cycling path!
Beginning of the famous indian summer. I was there 2 weeks too early, end of september.
