For the Love of Snowmobiling - Part 1
Cupid got me right in the sweet spot this Valentine's Day, putting me in the mood to take my wonderful lady on a little get-away.
Of course I wanted to mix the right amount of snowmobiling in with the romance and I didn't have to think too long about where we should go to get the best of both worlds. If you're wondering how to get your significant other to jump on the sled with you, keep reading.
It might seem like we're jamming the Quebec snowmobiling thing down your throat lately, however Quebec has an abundance of snow again this year and trips to Quebec are always an experience simply unmatched by any other destination in the world.
When our friends in the Chaudiere Appalaches region of Quebec (Chaudiere Appalaches borders the state of Maine and is in close proximity to one of North America's finest cities, Quebec City) invited us to visit, I immediately put two and two together and knew this was the ideal situation to impress my wife and her discerning tastes.
Start Your Trip the Right Way
We began our adventure at the Four Points Sheraton in Levis, Quebec which is just a short drive from the Quebec City airport.
The Four Points Sheraton in Levis is a special hotel with an energetic and creative General Manager who truly understands the finer points of tourism.
The meticulously clean and modern hotel highlights 5-star amenities and often features special events, whether hosting outdoor concerts, snocross races or building outdoor arenas worthy of hosting an NHL hockey game.
As a snowmobiler, one of the best parts about starting your trip here is that you can park your sled in the heated underground parking garage, drive it out and hit the trail immediately. Pretty sweet.
We arrived early and enjoyed a day at the hotel, taking advantage of the heated pool, gym and local amenities. A terrific restaurant, called Cosmos, is attached to the hotel and we had an incredible dinner that evening followed by a breakfast to die for the next morning before we departed.
Come back soon to read about our adventure and see photos and video shot with our GoPro HD Hero2 helmet-mounted camera. These photos are worth a thousand words.
