Beaver tails have become synonymous with Tremblant as the quintessential local after-ski snack. No, they are not actually made of beaver. These whole-wheat pastries are named for their shape which resembles a beaver tail. There are dozens of options but they typically come with maple butter or dusted in sugar and cinnamon. The atmosphere at the takeout stand at the foot of the hill is so convivial and chummy, you might think this is where the cliche of friendly Canadians was born.
