Well, JimB summed up Bromont fairly well.  Tremblant, however, was another
story.  The word "disneyesque" keeps popping into my head.  Skiing at
Tremblant is now just a diversion, just another activity amongst many
at the resort.  The village, IMO, is an abomination.  The hill is, too,
where the sense of standing on a remote mountaintop in a harsh environment
has all but disappeared.  Such a pity, too, for a mountain with such
a profound history.

The sad part is that this is what the masses want.  Glad to not be part
of the masses.  I'll be struggling to put a positive spin of any kind
on this story.

I have *never* been in crowds on a trail like that in my life.  A freakin'
anthill.  And the sad part is that passholders advised that this is a
typical Saturday, although the holidays are busier.  Ugh!!

I quite frankly don't care if I never go back.
