Mont Tremblant! Where to begin? Well, it’s home to the best skiing in the Laurentiens; two of SCOREgolf Magazine’s top-10 rated golf courses; an annual triathalon; the 2014 Ironman 70.3 Championship; a casino; its own blues festival; a race track and that’s just a snippet of all there is to see and do in this four-season playground.
But let’s back up a bit. Before you can abandon yourself to everything the Village has to offer, first you have to get here. The good news is: It couldn’t be easier.
Mont Tremblant is just 1.5 hours from Montreal, so you can fly in from anywhere in the world to Montreal-Trudeau International Airport. Mont Tremblant is also served by its very own international airport with direct flights from New York, Toronto, and Montreal. Not bad for a quaint village of 10,000.
Once you’re here, you’ll discover what all the fuss is about.
In the summer, you can start your day with a round of golf at Le Diable (the aptly named “The Devil”) or Le Géant. While the courses are challenging, the locals say the toughest thing is keeping your eye on the ball amidst the spectacular scenery.
After the links, maybe you’d like to become an apprentice falconer, take a leisurely cruise on Lake Tremblant, or ride the resort’s heart-pounding “luge.” Afterwards, you’ll want to treat yourself to a romantic and restorative soak at the Scandinavian Spa and Baths before an elegant meal and an evening of live music. Do try to leave a little time in your schedule for ziplining, hiking, cycling, canoeing, fishing, paintball, dune buggies, rock climbing, and rafting. And don’t miss the spectacular ride up the panoramic gondola to the very tip-top of the highest peak in the Laurentiens.
Planning a winter visit? Mont Tremblant literally rolls out the “white” carpet play when the snow flies. Downhill skiing and snow boarding are the best in Eastern North America with 95 runs for skiers and riders of all abilities. The longest run meanders for a full 6 kms! Did we mention the terrain park with its Olympic-calibre superpipe? And if cross-country is more your style, there are 80 kms of groomed trails for skiing, snowshoeing, and winter walking. Off the slopes, Tremblant gives you the chance to go dog sledding, ice climbing, tubing, and ice fishing. Not to mention the games and entertainment of Casino de Mont-Tremblant!
As you would expect at a world class resort, there are accommodations and vacation rental options at Mont Tremblant no matter what your needs or your budget. You’ll find cozy chalets and ski lodges, luxury condos, and spacious vacation homes to accommodate the whole family.
Visit Mont Tremblant and discover a vibrant mountain village with a distinctly European, entirely unforgettable “je ne sais quoi!”
