Experience Europe… without the jet lag. Reachable via flights from Toronto Billy Bishop Airport on Porter Airlines, Québec’s Mont-Tremblant region offers everything you’d expect from a ski vacation.
Located North of Montréal, the region’s winter attractions include three villages and a sprawling national park. Best of all, Tremblant has been ranked by National Ski Geographic in the 25 best Ski Resorts in the world.
Since 1991, Tremblant has been transformed from a regional ski mecca into a four-season, international resort. Under the guidance of Intrawest, which developed resorts such as Whistler and Steamboat, they have upgraded every square inch of the mountain and surroundings area. The result is a true mountain village that boasts architectural beauty, fine dining, a wealth of superb lodging options and an old world charm that’s genuinely unique.
At nearly 3,000 feet, Mont-Tremblant also offers some of the best skiing in the East. With 95 trails, four mountain faces, 654 acres of skiable terrain and three snow parks, there’s more than enough hill to keep skiers and boarders interested, regardless of their ability level. And because the perfectly groomed trails run right into the pedestrian-only village, you’re always just a short ski away from a gourmet lunch, a slope-side spa or a crackling fire in your hotel room.
More than skiing
In fact, if you venture a little further, you’ll soon discover why the local tourist authority’s tagline is “More than skiing”. Activities include dog-sledding, ice climbing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, just to name a few. Late in the day, parents can take the kids to nightly activities like tubing or skating to music under the stars.
But it’s the nightlife and events that really stand out at Mont-Tremblant. After dark, the bars and clubs really start jumping, and the season-long schedule of music and sporting events never lets up. Le Casino de Mont-Tremblant offers fun and excitement in an elegantly refined setting. Throw in some of the friendliest people around, and it all adds to the kind of ski vacation that prompts visitors to come back year after year.
For those who want to get in touch with nature, the Mont-Tremblant region offers a vast array of other attractions to discover. For example, Parc National du Mont-Tremblant is an immense, 500-square-mile wilderness of rushing rivers, pristine lakes and pine-scented forests.
If you need to get away from your routine, the Mont-Tremblant region has many renowned spas. Qualified and attentive staff will make you live an unforgettable experience.
