Mont Tremblant, Canada: Experience Eastern Canada’s “Joie de Vivre”
Featuring a dazzling array of lakes and trails, gourmet restaurants, charming bistros, exclusive boutiques, nightclubs and the Casino de Mont Tremblant, Fairmont Tremblant is an unforgettable retreat in the heart of Quebec.
Mont Tremblant’s attractive, brightly colored buildings, built in traditional ski village style, welcome vacationers to one of Eastern Canada’s most popular resorts. This cozy, purpose-built town offers plenty of recreation for skiers and non-skiers alike. Skiing, snowboarding, and a variety of other winter activities fill the days and nights at the resort.
Mont Tremblant provides over 610 skiable acres and a vertical drop of 649 meters (2,131 feet). Beginners enjoy 16% of the resort’s slopes as well as the coaching of bilingual instructors (Lessons are available for every level). Thirty-two percent of the slopes please intermediates, 41% challenge advanced skiers and 11% are designated for true experts.
Ninety-two trails wind down the mountains in three separate ski areas. The Versant Sud (Southern Slope) is the largest and most popular. The slopes receive an average of 150” of snow annually and the resort’s longest trail runs six kilometers (3.75 miles). All 92 trails are open to snowboarders, as well as two snowparks. The X-Zone Adventure Park is popular among boarders and includes a 17-foot tall Super Pipe.
There are many exciting winter activities on the list of things to do in Mont Tremblant. Cross-country skiers wind through a network of 100 kilometers (63 miles) of mechanically groomed trails, 25 kilometers (16 miles) of which are good for skating style. Off the slope activities include ice climbing, plane tours, snowshoeing (great for families and wildlife enthusiasts), sleigh riding, tobogganing, tubing, snowmobiling, dog sledding through a forest, and horseback riding through fresh powder.
Aprés-ski activities are plentiful in this lively village. More than 45 shops draw visitors to the pedestrian village to buy just about anything from perfume and clothing to books and art. Restaurant menus in the area include French, Italian, Savoyard, Japanese, and Mexican cuisine, as well as great steaks and pastries.
