Tremblant Ski Resort

Eastern Canada’s premier resort of Tremblant is not only a relatively short flight and transfer from the UK, but it is home to a lot of varied terrain – making this a firm family favourite.

Although it can be bitterly cold in midwinter, if you wrap up warm or get lucky with the weather, you’ll have a great time exploring the slopes on the north and south sides of Mont Tremblant. There are some excellent long cruisey runs on the Versant Sud (South Side), whilst recent upgrades – including a lot of additional glading of the trees – on the Versant Nord (North Side) have made this a great place for more advanced skiers and snowboarders.

The purpose built village is attractive and has been designed to be in keeping with old Quebec-style architecture. It is lively, especially at weekends when locals from Montreal come up to ski, and there is a good collection of bars and restaurants to choose from.

Tremblant Skiing and Snowboarding

The beginner’s area on the edge of the village is excellent, with great facilities to help keep kids warm on those bitterly cold Quebec days. Progression on to longer greens served by the Flying Mile fast quad is excellent, whilst even on the steeper Versant Nord there is a summit to base green. Intermediates will enjoy the blues under the new Lowell Thomas quad or the long sunny blue down to the base of the Le Soleil quad.

Advanced skiers and riders have a great selection of terrain parks to choose from, as well as a number of steep groomed blacks. The best runs lie directly down under the gondola on the Versant Sud or to skiers right of the Duncan Express on the Versant Nord. Extensive thinning of previously dense forest on this side of the mountain has really upped the available ungroomed terrain – head here after fresh snowfall for some of the East Coast’s best glade skiing.

Tremblant Resort

The resort base was developed by Intrawest – the same firm that built much of Whistler. It has been tastefully designed to look like traditional Quebec and you’ll find the centre attractive and colourful. There is a great buzz within the centre, with some good post-skiing watering holes and a good selection of restaurants.

There is a lot to do off the slopes, aided by the flat valley below the resort and the frozen lake. There is ice skating and ice fishing, as well as a big network of cross country and winter walking trails – you can even go fatbiking in the snow.

How to get to Tremblant

Getting here very easy, especially when compared to the resorts in BC and Alberta. The flight is much shorter and the hour and a half transfer up to the resort makes this very accessible.

  • Montreal airport: 1.5 hours
