Sweet tooth and snowy slopes
-OK, kids! We're here!
Yup! The Outaouais' main advantage is that everything is near. Where else can you leave the city and be on the slopes in less than half an hour? With four ski resorts in a 30 minute radius from Gatineau and a fifth one less than an hour away, you'll be able to teach your younger ones your favorite winter activity.
Start with breakfast that will satisfy even your ever-hungry teenager at La Station and hit the road for Mont Cascades. When everyone's exhausted, treat the bunch at The Wakefield Confectionery with their different fudges and sweets (you'll want to make reserves for later) and end the day with a juicy Chelsea Burger at the Chelsea Pub. Sweet dreams are guaranteed for everyone!
