We all have our usual weekend après-ski routines. We love to have a drink with friends and often find ourselves at The Caribou, of course, or La Diable, The Shack and La Forge. We work our way around our favorite hot spots. This winter though we have discovered some new hang outs we did not know about for Après-ski that are definitely worth checking out next time you are up for the weekend.
Our first little secret discovery that is without a doubt at the top of our list is the Veuve Clicquot in the Snow at the Fairmont Hotel. It’s in theory exclusive to Fairmont guests but a wink and a smile will work every time as you charm your way over to their champagne bar in the snow overlooking the resort. Ski your way over to the Fairmont near the pool and sit by the fire pits and sip champagne. They say Diamonds are a girl’s best friend but Veuve Clicquot is a close second! If you are still there around dinner time do not hesitate to reserve a table at one of our very favorite Tremblant restaurants right inside the Fairmont at Le Choux Gras Brasserie Culinaire. Makes for a pretty perfect Saturday après-ski if you ask us! #clicquotinthesnow.
I think you have heard us say before that we love live music. There just isn’t enough of it around. With that said, you can launch your weekends at Le Quintessence Hotel’s Winebar (also a spectacular spot) every Friday night this winter until March 27th starting at 7pm. Enjoy live music from Valectra while sitting in their oh so cozy and contemporary winebar sipping wine surrounded by thousands of spectacular bottles. Not a bad way to start the weekend!
We don’t head over to the north side quite as much as we should. But chef Bruno Krivak has definitely made a name for himself and has quite a large following that has turned this restaurant/bar Le Rustique into a real success story. Locals and tourists have given this restaurant quite a reputation and we have to agree too, it’s pretty darn cool! So with that said, if you have skied down the north side at the end of a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, head on over to Le Rustique for some après-ski munchies offered free with your drink of choice from 3-5pm. They come up with different treats every weekend to satisfy your hunger after a day of full activity.
Hope you enjoy what winter has to offer in this beautiful place. See you on the slopes and hope to see you in our restaurants. #supportlocalbusiness
