Mont Tremblant catches the breath



This is why we skiers love the mountains. The breathcatching beauty. Well - one of the reasons. Cold temperatures have kept the trees on the upper slopes of Quebec's Mont Tremblant laden heavily with snow this week. When the sun broke through weakly the contrast of blinding white against intense blue and the views of a frozen Lac Tremblant were stunning. The skiing has been excellent at times, particularly on the resort's black diamond runs on the Versant Nord - the north side of the mountain, which is about 1hr mins by road from Montreal. But there have been hard and sometimes icy patches to catch out the unwary. New snowfall has threatened, but storms have not set in, yielding instead a few frustrating flurries which have left a centimetre or two of snow in the village and on the pistes.
