If you want to experience a beautiful view of the changing of the leaves, the Laurentians is the place to go. Spectacular.

One of the most jaw dropping gorgeous drives EVER! especially when the leaves changes, fuel up and just drive south through 95 from Montreal to NYC but beware the speed traps at the border! Pack a lunch and pull over at the rest stops you will be transfixed by the beauty around you.

Greetings, fellow TripAdvisor members and travelers! I'm excited to be visiting Mont-Tremblant for the first time as part of an upcoming day trip from Montreal to les Laurentides -- which itself will be part of a week-long return trip to Montreal and Quebec City. My questions about Mont-Tremblant pertain to the gondolas. It's a little embarrassing to admit at my age that I've never taken a cable car ride ever, anywhere! I'm not sure if the Gray Line tour allows for three hours or 90 minutes of free time in the Pedestrian Village at Mont-Tremblant, but if it *is* three hours, I plan on experiencing a gondola ride. Between my dreams and the scenes in movies of many kinds (although none of them in Mont-Tremblant but in the French, Swiss and Italian alps), I have been wishing for a long time to ride in a cable car without having to ski. QUESTION #1: How much does it cost (please state if CAD or US) for a gondola ride round-trip ticket? I won't have a ski pass (I know ... duh, right? It's July), but I don't mind paying more just to have such a thrilling experience! QUESTION #2: Because it's peak tourism season, might there be a very long queue just to purchase a gondola ticket? QUESTION #3: Even for those with tickets, is there a secondary line to board the gondolas? QUESTION #4: While you're up high and taking in the breathtaking views, are you strapped in a seatbelt or other type of harness? I always wondered that about cable cars. QUESTION #5: Would I have to ride alone? I'll be with a group tour (for the day trip only), but because it's our free time, I might be wandering around the Pedestrian Village alone. Still, I'm wondering if the person who helps me board the gondola will have others join me in the cable car. QUESTION #6: Is there any danger of altitude sickness? I'll be taking my rescue inhaler with me everywhere I go on the entire trip -- I'm a non-smoker and have only mild asthma that doesn't require maintenance medicine anymore. The highest I've ever ventured (by car or coach, never via hiking) in the mountainous areas of Quebec province, is Mont-Royal (OK, true, that's only a hill, geologically speaking) and a town that a friend's relative once owned in les Laurentides, but that cottage was not located as far north as Mont-Tremblant. ... I do have one question *not* related to the Mont-Tremblant gondolas: Which restaurants and/or cafes would you all recommend I try while in Mont-Tremblant? Thanks to all of you, tremendously, for taking the time to read my questions, let alone taking the time to answer them. One day I hope to return to Mont-Tremblant for a weekend stay in one of those condos, but for now all I'll have time to do is eat there and (again, if the "free time" amounts to three hours and not 90 min.) ride in a gondola. After those two activities, the only souvenir I'll be able to afford is a snowglobe.
