I probably should’ve called this post “Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone in Wintry Québec” because that seemed to be the recurring theme during my recent trip to Québec. I settled with “An Awesome Winter in Québec” because that’s what it was… simply AWESOME! I didn’t think I would’ve enjoyed this trip because I’m not a big fan of winter but I stepped up to it with an open mind, a big dose of healthy curiosity and many layers of warm clothing. I didn’t regret it for a second! Part of it had to do with the group – a fun bunch that was determined to brave the cold and have the time of their lives. Another part had to do with the range of experiences, many of them new to me, but most of all, I was just so excited to be back in Quebéc!
We spent three days in Mont Tremblant, a ski village north of Montréal, where we learned snowboarding, went on snowshow hikes and indulged ourselves in the spa. From here, we made our way to Montréal where we spent three days exploring the city and discovering what makes this city tick during the deep freeze. We had an amazing time despite the Arctic-like temperatures, thanks to the breathtaking scenery, adrenaline-charged winter activities, excellent food and the terrific company! Check out the short slideshow I created that captures some of the best moments of this trip. Hope you enjoy it (almost) as much as I enjoyed shooting those scenes!
