The Trembling Mountain

By Linda Tancs

The American Indians named Canada’s Mont Tremblant “Manitou Ewitchi Saga” after Manitou, the god of nature.  Legend has it that Manitou could make the mountains tremble–hence the name “Mont Tremblant” (trembling mountain).  Today the mountain trembles with the roar of skiers and hosts the premier ski resort in eastern North America.  In keeping with the season, there are other outdoor activities, too:  snowmobiling, sleigh riding and ice climbing, for starters.
