Our hotel in St Sauveur was a welcome sight! We could see the hill from our front door with the runs outlines with lights. The six of us got along great over the weekend, laughing often at funny stories about each other. Bright and early the next morning we set out for a full day of skiing
I know this is kind of an odd thing to mention but the McDonalds in St Sauveur is worth a visit. I'm not normally a huge fan but this place is not the normal franchise. The place is decked out with stained glass panels depicting the St Sauveur area wildlife and landscape. Also there are old black and white photos on the walls of what the hill used to look like before tourism took over - you can tell that someone had a plan when they built that town. It's a really cute little ski village with brightly coloured buildings and proximity to all amenities. Senica and I heel-toed in there with our ski boots on the first afternoon and we were greeted with a 'Bienvenue chez vous', how much more friendly can you get?!
We loved our days of skiing so much that as we collapsed for a late afternoon nap we'd always promise ourselves to go to night skiing. Realistically, however, our muscles were just too exhausted to do any more so we spent our nights dining on French food with live accordion music or eating sushi in front of the fireplace. Quite a romantic way to spend St. Valentine's day.
