The view of the Adirondacks (US) from the Hurricane Mountain fire tower. The tower has been closed to visitors for some time now so the only way to enjoy the panoramic view from the lookout is here.
Not Montreal I know, but this is a only a few hours drive from here and a nice place to go hiking with snowshoes. There are some good trails up to the observatory or if you just can’t overcome lazyness, take the shuttle at the park’s entrance then go all the way down by walking.
The US is right on the other side of the valley and on a clear day we can see the highest points of tree states: Jay Peak in Vermont, Mt. Marcy in New York and Mt. Washington in New Hampshire.

It’s spring and there is very little snow now but a total of 6.6 meters (+21 ft) over the summit were reported by the end of this season! The Round Top is the highest point on Mount Sutton range and is the home for one of the biggest ski resorts near Montreal, about an hour drive from here.
