Why Ski in Mont Tremblant?
Mont-Tremblant is the premier resort for four season fun and relaxation. This corner of paradise offers the spring and summer vacationer golf, water sports, horseback riding, biking, festivals and so much more for all the family to enjoy. In fall the leaves begin to change and colorfully announce the arrival of a magical and special time of year – winter!!!
As the snow begins to cover the trees and mountain tops and the lakes freeze, Mont-Tremblant changes its costume from vivid fall colors to glistening white with bright blues skies. The area abounds in winter time sports and fun – dog sledding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing and, of course, skiing!
Tremblant has been voted the number one ski resort in Eastern North America, year after year by ski publications and avid skiers. It raises a majestic 2871 feet into the air, has 94 trails, the longest being 3.75 miles and altogether there are 625.5 acres of ski able ground. There are trails for beginners, intermediates and at least 47 trails for skiing experts. Not quite sure how to go down a slope gracefully and safely, enroll in “Snow School” where lessons are provided for small groups of adults, teens and even toddlers and babies. Private lessons are also available.
Mont-Tremblant’s lift system handles 27,230 skiers per hour so there’s no wasting of fun time waiting to get to the top. You can choose the Gondola for an impressive, overall view of the mountain and surrounding area, high-speed quads or magic carpets. And for the hungry skier or mountain visitor, there are many lunch spots that offer warming hot chocolate and soups, sandwiches or complete meals.
While on skis discover the mountain's long history by taking advantage of a free guided tour. Learn the origins of trail names. Seek out the prime lookouts, the sunniest trails and the little-know rest stops. The tour lasts 45 to 60 minutes and is available to skiers of all skill levels.
Be certain to sample some of the other wintertime sports and activities. For the very adventuresome there is ice climbing or riding the snowmobile. Snowshoeing is a great alternative if cross-country skiing. Sleigh rides are great for the whole family or for a romantic evening with someone special.
