Tremblant, with its cobbled streets and quaint houses is the most colourful and atmospheric ski town in the Quebec province. Consistently voted the ‘Best Resort in Eastern North America’ by the Ski Magazine, the slope-side pedestrian village is perfectly constructed with skiers in mind.
Everything is within walking distance and you can easily reach the ski lifts from many of our hotels. At 875 metres the mountain, Mont Tremblant is one of the highest peaks in the Laurentians National Park and provides four mountain faces of extensive skiing: Versant Sud, Versant Soleil, Versant Nord and the Edge. It’s possibly the best skiing you can do in Eastern Canada with an excellent variety of groomed runs.
Mont Tremblant inherited its name from the local First Nation tribe, the Algonquins, who called it the ‘trembling mountain’. The village of Tremblant first became a ski resort in 1939 when American, Joseph Bondurant Ryan constructed its first chair lift.
The blend of Québécois and American architecture in the resort gives Mont Tremblant a unique and charming atmosphere. The resort is also known as ‘the Disneyland of winter ski’ as there is such a wealth of activities for skiers and non-skiers alike.
The added benefit of a ski holiday to Mont Tremblant is the excellent food. The French-speaking culture of Quebec perfectly blends Canadian and French cuisine to create some of the tastiest food in North America.
