Hello,

To answer your question about is it worth it in Nov., it really depends on what you want to do. For skiing, the weather is really unpredictable so it's quite hard to say if the skiing conditions will be good by then but generally, it's cold. For someone coming from Thunder Bay, I don't think you need to worry. For eating and siteseeing, every month is a good time because there's always good restaurants to try, we have an excellent food scene going on. You can always visit museums, churches and fun neighbourhoods.

Now for mountain or ski resort villages outside of Montreal , it could be anything. Mont Orford, Mont St. Sauveur, Bromont, Mont Sutton, etc.

Hope that helps!

You are probably referring to Tremblant. November is pretty much a crapshoot if you are wanting to ski and it's a bust if you are wanting to see the spectacular fall foliage since that generally occurs in October. You can find all kinds of references to Tremblant on these boards.

So in other words Tremblant is not really worth seeing at all? Is even the Village worth a look at all?

Closer to Montreal, you have the ski resorts at St. Saveur. It's maybe 30-40 min. from Montreal.

There are 3-5 small to medium size resorts clustered around the town. If the snow is decent, they're worth a look, and a heck of a lot cheaper than Tremblant. They're not world-class, but they're good for families, have discount tickets in Nov. and can keep even advanced skiers happy if enough runs are open.

Mont St. Saveur has good snow making. I skied there mid-November this year at Mont St. Saveur, and the mt. has half open. Took the kids to Mont Gabriel or Olympia (I forget which), and we had a great time.

You can also go snow tubing at Mt. Avila if the skiing is sketchy.

All these resorts are owned by MSSI, and share a common web site.
