Mont Tremblant, Quebec: Dining, Apres Ski, Nightlife and Shopping

Mont Tremblant Dining, Après Ski and Nightlife

 

La Cabane à Sucre Millette ( ;the Millette Sugar Shack) - This traditional Quebecois sugar shack collects the sap like they've been doing it for centuries. They are known for their rich family-style meals: pea soup, grandma's omelets, "scrunchies" (salted lard), ham, sausages, maple-poached eggs and pancakes, all especially delicious when drenched in maple syrup. The maple season is from mid-March to mid-April, but the restaurant is open from March 1 to April 20, Tuesday to Sunday. May to February they run tours explaining the transformation of the sap into maple syrup Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. During this time, the restaurant opens when they have 40 people or more.
