6 years

enjoying maple taffy

6 years ago, we visited Mont Tremblant in Quebec, CA on a spring break trip made for college kids. it was definitely an experience – we rode the 12+ hours in the Jack Daniels tour bus, the conditions were mostly wet, and we learned quickly that we were easily the oldest ones in the club/bar because the drinking age is 18 or 19. the above picture was taken at the maple shop, where they pour hot maple syrup over ice to help it crystallize and then it had the consistency of loose taffy.

fast forward to this year, and the conditions were more wintry, we had a car to properly visit Montreal, and our snowboarding skills have vastly improved. but we still couldn’t resist taking the throwback photo:


Mont Tremblant was a lot of fun, the trails were really long and mostly superwide, and even the glades were sufficiently challenging/impossible. it is still on my list of snowboarding favorites – but there are still tons of other places I need to ride – maybe Whistler?
