TREM­BLANT, QUEBEC

SKI - - EAST -

“Gor­geous vil­lage. It feels like Europe!” That’s a char­ac­ter­is­tic reader com­ment about about Trem­blant. And yeah, we get it. The lan­guage, the food, the pedes­trian vil­lage—it all res­onates with Old World taste and charm. But call it what it is: Que­be­cois cul­ture, and God bless its en­dur­ing au­then­tic­ity. Quebec, sur­rounded by English speak­ers, has al­ways fiercely guarded its Fran­co­phone iden­tity. So brush up your French, and be pre­pared to use it with re­sort em­ploy­ees who speak lit­tle English. That, above all, is why a trip to Trem­blant re­ally feels like for­eign travel. Well, that…and all the glo­ri­ous food.
