Tremblant Ski Holidays
Tremblant is a small but perfectly formed ski mountain village in the heart of Quebec in Eastern Canada. Its mountain summit at 2871ft offers spectacular panoramic views out over the Laurentian Mountains. For its size at just 665 acres it packs a hefty punch offering 14 ski lifts and 96 ski trails spread over four mountain faces all backed up with one of the most powerful and sophisticated snowmaking systems in North America. It’s firmly family focused for sure, but has plenty of terrain and features to tempt even the most experienced skier or rider.
Tremblant has a distinctly Gallic air taking its main architectural influences from Europe. The resort is made up of narrow pedestrianised streets, crammed with interesting shops, bars, patisseries and cafés and, being in the heart of Québec, the French language is all about you. Friendly Canadian service also abounds here, as well as great quality slopeside accommodation with a genuine cosmopolitan vibe.
Skiing in Tremblant
The resort ski lift network and terrain have been beautifully designed for all levels of skier and rider. Beginners are particularly well catered for in Tremblant with a nice learn-to-ski area for adults and kids, a great ski school programme, safe slow-ski zones and loads of long, wide, tree-lined cruisers allowing novices to build their confidence and join in the fun even from the very top of the mountain.
Intermediates will love making laps on the top to bottom trails, perfect for getting miles under the skis using one of the two high speed lifts that run from the ski base(s) - the Express Gondola on Versant Sud and Duncan Express Quad on Versant Nord. With a vertical of over 2,100ft this is not a small mountain. If you are an adventurous intermediate and feel like trying something new, Tremblant has excellent gladed runs at varying pitches – the trees are nicely spaced and the tracks through them clearly evident – try ‘Reaction’ and ‘Sensation’ over by The Edge chair.
Expert and advanced skiers and riders have just about half of the mountain dedicated to difficult and extreme terrain, and the upper mountain on both sides has a huge choice of gnarly drops through the trees with a pitch up to a squeaky 42 degrees. Expect chutes, bumps, steeps, awesome groomed black runs and a mountain that feels much, much bigger than its stats would suggest.
At the end of the day make tracks for Le P’tit Caribou – considered one of the best après-ski bars in Canada, with great cocktails, weekly live music and a unique Tremblant vibe. Dancing on the bar is essential behaviour…
