Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I visited Montreal in the winter and it snowed every nite. Even though I consider myself an "Iceperson" who prefers being too cold to being too hot I found myself buying a hat,gloves and scarf. Fortunatly I found excellent products and good deals on them .So instead of packing all your own winter stuff, plan on shopping for them here and leave some room in your luggage.
Miscellaneous: The Montreal population is flexible when it comes to weather. It can be cold, windy and raining outside and the temperatures can rise in a matter of an hr. So be prepared if you are planning a visit out here. It can be full summer one day, the next practically winter and vice versa. Have an umbrella handy and bring a mix of clothing you can play with.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather is one of our favorite conversation topic. It changes everyday. Snow, rain, wind, sunshine, ... Expect everything! From december to april, it's freezing. Bring warm clothes, boots, mitains, winter coats, ... From april to june, it's usually around 15C. A warm coat is still usefull, but you can wear skirts or shorts on the good days. From june to september, it's very warm (usually) and average 20-30C. T-shirts, shorts, bathing suit. And september to december (my favorite season) you can finally wear your big wool sweaters!
If you come in the winter, come prepared! Bring clothing that can be layered and is resistant to wetness. Boots and jackets are necessary- gloves, toques, scarves, everything. Temperatures can be -20 easily but the sun is almost always shining.
If you come in the summer, come prepared! It can get extremely hot and humid so don't be bringing your parkas. 40 degrees celsius is not uncommon so bring light, cotton clothing!
Luggage and bags:
We mostly travel by car to our hotel. We like the Montreal Delta as it has parking and is easy to get to. We also use the Queen Elizabeth when traveling by rail.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If winter, pack with clothes that will keep you warm from the winds and very cold. A nice thing about the city is that much of it is underground. You can travel all about the city walking walkways between large underground shopping malls. METRO is also a clean nice way to travel.
Luggage and bags:

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It can get very cold here. I was there one March and it was -13 degrees. were layers, hats and gloves.
