On some days, you can feel the warm spring breeze will blow into town, and you'll think to yourself "wow, this is it!" - as we have been experiencing lately - then, three days later, it will drop down to a bone-chilling -20 degrees as a blizzard of epic proportions beats down on the city. In other words, March is rough.\nREAD ALSO: These 10 Montreal Restaurants Ranked "Best" In Canada\nThat said, this is the last chance, however, do to all those winter activities you didn't do while you were Netflixing under your duvet all winter.\nAgain, this is your LAST CHANCE, to get your friends together and go spring skiing or go on that toboggan ride you promised your girlfriend you would take her on all winter.
