The Laurentian Mountains

Quebec City, Canada

The Laurentian Mountains

North America's first ski lift was built in the Laurentians in 1931, and by the late 1930s "snow trains" had brought tens of thousands of Montreal skiers to the slopes. Ever since, the Laurentians have been Montreal's four-season playground.

The Laurentian Mountains cover 22,000 square miles of territory just north of Montreal in the southern part of Quebec. The Laurentian Mountains with its many peaks and lakes are a majestic presence in Mont-Tremblant Canada displaying incredible landscapes. This vast and welcoming region is a popular tourist destination offering a long list of activities all four seasons of the year.

Restaurant L'ambiance at Manoir Saint-Sauveur features sophisticated epicurean treats such as Quebec prime rib of veal, Boileau deer, piglet from the Gaspor farm, and grilled Marieville duck breast; Sunday brunch featuring Bellevue salmon and maple butter pancakes is a weekend ritual. Diners at airy, modern maestro in Saint-Sauveur tend to be locals and the menu is eclectic, from pork belly and lobster sandwiches for lunch to duck confit and barbecue chicken for dinner.
