My family and I are planning a vacation to Mt. Tremblant Feb 18-22 and are very confused about where to stay. We haven't been able to find anyone to ask, except the resort and they of course want us to stay in the resort. So, given the following, we would very much appreciate any suggestions,
There will be my wife and I and our two teenage kids. My wife doesn't ski. One day I will ski with both kids and another day my son and I will ski and my wife and daughter won't. They skate and x-c ski. When we all ski my wife will want to lounge, read and shop/explore. We will have one car, so when we are split up we'll need transportation by foot, car or public trans. We are on a budget and also want an "authentic" experience and have been told that the resort village is somewhat Disney-like. We can swing a resort hotel (suite w/kitchen) on our budget, but concern is that restaurants and shops are all very expensive in the resort. And all very "corporate?"
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'll check back frequently in case there are questions or clarifications from me. We have to reserve our accommodations by Tues. Dec. 4.
