Resort Profile: Mont Tremblant

By adamrowden, 14 Dec '12 at 09:31

Mont-Tremblant is a ski resort in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada. Situated around 130km northwest of Montreal, Mont Tremblant is a year round ski destination that has the highest peak (875m) in the Laurentians.

Tremblant is quite often known as the premier European Resort in North America and once in resort you can appreciate the decidedly European feel to the place. It is a resort that is cracking for the more experienced and advanced skiers and snowboarders out there, and beginners will most probably find it tricky, so should consider heading elsewhere.

The nightlife in the resort can be slow to get going, but Vieux Tremblant has some pretty cool bars and clubs that are worth checking out. The resort also plays host to a very bizarre place called Bizztrado, which is, get this... a no-adults club where under-18s can drink non-alcoholic cocktails. Whatever next?

On the Slopes

Guests to Mont Tremblant will have access to 600 acres on which they can ski and ride, with an added 121 acres of glades. There are 13 lifts and 94 runs and you can also catch the Duncan Express to the top of the North Side in a mere nine minutes - there is an eight passenger gondola on the south side.

Tremblant has some decent terrain that is split into areas. Versants Nord and Soleil are cracking and there is also Versants Edge and two terrain parks that are pretty tricky and well worth testing yourself on.

As well as all of the above, there is also the Mont Tremblant National park, that encompasses 373,000 acres. This vast area offers you plenty of opportunities including snowmobiling and dog-sledding as well as Acrobranche courses.

Beginners will mainly tend to stick around the village and the more advanced skiers out there will head to the steeper trails on the mountain’s Versant Nord. The top-to-bottom lifts can get very crowded during the peak weeks, so seasonaires will tend to avoid these.
