Throwback Thursday: Mont Tremblant, 2011

During the winter months, there isn't much to do except to SNOWBOARD! A bunch of my friends and I had taken a road trip to Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada during Martin Luther King weekend. I only snowboarded one out of the two days there but it was so much fun!

We had multiple cars but the one I was in had 5 of us packed into a Camry. We all had snowboards and it was amazing how we all got it to fit! Tetris helps little kids!!!

The drive was long and very cold. As we started to hit the colder parts of Canada, the heat in the car couldn't keep up and we had to put layers on. Thinking about it now, it would've been really scary to have the car break down at that point. Our windows were icing up and the air coming out of the vents started to become colder. After a 7-8 hour drive, we reached our destination.

The first day snowboarding, we also had snow coming down on us the entire day with an average temperature of 11°F with a windchill of at least 5°F. How do we know this? While sitting on one of the lifts up towards the mountain, the wind was hitting us really hard at some parts and some of us had wind burn on our faces by the end of the day.

The second day it was sunny and clear enough to take photos from the top of the mountain. Our day was cut short due to some injuries but we are all healthy and fine now! At the end of the night, we ended up drinking clamato (which is awesome) and snow tubing over and over again before dinner.
