General Style Tips

  • The people of Montreal steel themselves for snow from October to May. They can't beat their long Canadian winter, so they do the only sensible thing: They adapt to it - outdoors and in.
  • Outdoors, Montrealers ski, skate, toboggan and take horse-drawn sleighs on Mount Royal.
  • While indoors, a weatherproof underground city thrives. Smart shops, continental-style cafes and cinemas with films in French and English line indoor promenades beneath office buildings.
  • And virtually everything is linked by the Metro, with its efficient, bright blue cars.
  • Sporting events and the theater are both popular here, so you'll need a combination of purely practical clothes and a few glitzier bits.
