Spartan Tremblant 2013

sr cmyk round bb 180x180 Spartan Tremblant 2013The Spartan Race in Mont Tremblant has become my favorite event of the year.  Almost every week in Tremblant there is an event and this one does not fail to impress in almost every category.

When I first blogged about this event 3 years ago I didn’t think it would become as huge as it has.  This year there was 5500 participants and the energy in the Domaine St.Bernard was awesome. The music was blaring, tons of people roaming around with mud covered bodies and some looked like they had been to hell and back.  The people behind the

Rainy Walk On Le Geant

photo 2 180x180 Rainy Walk On Le Geant I came home from a long day at work and right away decided to go for a walk in the rain.  I felt I needed to breath in the fresh air.  There had been  loud thunder and some lightning a little earlier on but it seemed safe at this point. I could see the clouds clearing up.

The weather has been great lately and its hard to imagine there was a snow storm of 20 cm a few weeks ago followed by some 28 degree weather.  The trees are quickly busting out

The Perfect Spa Day

scandinave spa mont tremblant 180x180 The Perfect Spa DayEveryone loves to hang out at a spa.  I finally decided to write about where I work, the Scandinave Spa,  why not inform the people about one of the must do’s if you are in Tremblant.  Whether your in the area for the day, an over nighter, or a mini vacation, you should definitely stop by for a visit,  if you know what’s good for you.

The Scandinave Spa is a great experience.  We specialize in therapeutic baths as well as massages.  Our spa

Porter Escape

water 180x180 Porter EscapeI finally had the opportunity to have an overnight getaway to Toronto with Porter Airlines for a mini business trip.  I had been to the Airport La Macaza in Tremblant but had not actually flown out from that destination.   I had heard only good things about it and it ended up being as convenient as I had been told.  My two co workers and good friends from the Scandinave Spa were joining me for an over night stay as well. It was a quick in and out but I thought it would be nice to fly down and have some Indian Cuisine before heading back to Tremblant ,were Indian curry is  scarce unless you are making it yourself.

The drive from the Resort to the airport was fairly quick, 30 minutes on the back roads behind Lac Mercier ends up being the fastest way.  The airport itself is like being in someone’s big log cabin house.  A huge fireplace sits in the middle of it all with dream catchers hanging from the wood beam posts

Marché de Noël

IMG 45171 180x180 Marché de NoëlAll summer long we are blessed with the fabulous local summer market located in the old village.  This year they decided to treat us to a Christmas Market (Marché des Fêtes) at City Hall in St.Jovite. Its a one day only deal but I’ll take it!  If only they did this every week-end all year round, it would be so great.

As usual you can find all the local artisans and suppliers that we see during the summer months.

Being way behind in my gift shopping so far, I thought that going local

Apres Ski with Ariane Lavigne

IMG 41591 180x180 Apres Ski with Ariane LavigneI was delighted to meet Ariane Lavigne through the Spa Scandinave as she is one of their official ambassadors. She is an athlete and nutritionist who snowboards on the Canadian National Team.  She holds the Canadian Champion title in Slalom and  her goal is to get to the 2014 Olympics in Russia.

She loves the Scandinave Spa in Mont Tremblant  and I see her quite often getting the much needed spa and massage treatments. Aside from understanding the importance of a good balanced diet, recuperating after a work out is important too!

In one of our meetings we got to talking about how apres ski also plays an important

A Toi Lola 2012

IMG 3472 180x180 A Toi Lola 2012Today was the 6th edition of the A Toi Lola event.  This event is held every year at the Domaine St. Bernard and it’s for women of all ages who wish to attain a personal goal created just for them.  You can be someone fit and athletic or someone who isn’t as active and still participate. The main purpose is to encourage the education and physical activity for girls. It’s always a great day where you can expect to see lots of familiar faces getting fit together.

This year in particular, it was great to see how big the event has become.  As always a lot of the husbands and boyfriends cheer from the sidelines.
