Tremblant
Description:

Tremblant has been Eastern Canada's best known resort since 1939. The first resort to open in Canada and the second in North America, it is located in the picturesque Laurentian Forest, an easy drive from Montreal. Since being purchased by Intrawest in 1992, Tremblant has been virtually rebuilt from scratch and it has benefited greatly from a 10 year investment program totalling almost 1 billion Canadian dollars. The plan has transformed the old ""Mont Tremblant"" in to a four season destination resort with a brilliantly designed pedestrian center, successfully themed in traditional Quebec architectural style, including smoothly cobbled streets. Every aspect of the resort experience has been carefully considered and designed into the new Tremblant. Essentially everything you need is at the resort and it's all within a short walk from the various lodging properties. Add to that the unique atmosphere of this part of North America, where French Canadian ""joie de vivre"" meets North American service and value standards, and the result is one of the world's best mountain resorts.

Pros: close to Montreal

Cons: expensive, ugly architecture and layout, crowds

Only been there once and I don't think I will go back.  This place is so grotesque.  This fake Disneyland resort is so disconcerting and devoid of any charm.  It looks like a Hollywood soap-opera set.  I don't understand why you have to take a standing lift to access the slopes from the arrival area.  This just creates a bottleneck to leave or access the slopes on a crowded day.  Why not have slopes all the way down to the main base?  Oh! So we can fly over some tacky hotel or marvel at the expensive condos on the way up?  The Sunday I was there, the crowds were the largest I've ever seen the US or Canada.  Long lines, overly and dangereously crowded slopes, poor snow conditions (very icy and granted not entirely their fault.)  I feel like I went to Disneyland but never even saw Mickey Mouse.

Pros: Easy to navigate layout, fast lifts, great grooming

Cons: Cold, pricey and icy

Skied Tremblant for the previous two seasons. Good mix of beginner and intermediate terrain on a relatively compact and easy to navigate mountain. (Having spent some time at Stowe the season just gone, I really appreciated the compactness of Tremblant, particularly when skiing with younger children.) With the majority of runs groomed daily, I would include the most of the non-moguled black runs as intermediate terrain. Nothing to steep or extreme, except maybe for Dynamite on the North side. The four sides of the mountain make it particularly good for getting away from nasty winds or chasing the sun. At around CA$90 for a non-discounted day pass it's on the pricey side.

Pros: close to montreal, quite high, gondola, accessible student pass

Cons: icy, icy, icy, artificial snow, crowded, expensive day passes

this is my 3rd year with a discounted student pass at approx 320$! you must reside in montreal, be younger than 29 years old and be a full-time student. you can buy it by phone or at the customer service, but they do not advertise for it online :) this mountain is very icy, especially by the end of the day and they do not groom during the day. no night skiing either. there is a possibility to buy an extra ticket in the morning to hit the first tracks about 1 hr early before everybody else. many snow parks for all levels, many lifts, a nice gondola. awesome glades and moguls on versant edge! Beware: you can only buy tickets from versant south or versant north. There are many free parking spots in p1, p2, p6. there is also a vip parking lot for 10$. i like tremblant because it's 1.5hrs from montreal, 120 km, and it's the highest peak in the area. Big mountain, many trails! nice family resort with jacuzzi and massage at spa scandinave, fun bars and restaurants. There are many hotels for all budgets, for example fairmount, holiday inn, best western, including a youth hostel accessible by city bus. Quadruple occupancy is about 25$ per person per night. You can also rent condos ski-in-ski-out. There is a very nice lake, opportunity to ice skate, dog sleigh, and many other winter activities in the resort. There is also a casino in the area. There is a special pass, the t-66, available for all ages, where you have 66 days of free skiing for less than 400$. Most days are week days, but there are a few week-end days!

Pros: Nice variety of runs

Cons: No gondola on the north side

Skied this mountain for a season.  Some great runs and the place fealt very quirky and European.

Christmas and weekends are better avoided.

The Hooky pass was good as it was relatively cheap and gave me Mon-Fri skiing which suited me fine.

Plenty of black runs but frequently icy patches made skiing interesting.

Slope groomed and looked after reasonably well.

Bad part is that this resort is in Canada but there are some people who do not speak a word of English and clearly have no wish to learn.  Hard to believe.

Mountain staff generally good but appear to hate their jobs as they seem terribly unhappy in their work as well as have no sense of humour.

One thing which annoyed the heck out of me was the $20 per ride charge for non skiers wanting to catch a lift to the summit for lunch.  I wanted to have lunch with my wife at the sumit (she was buying a meal!!) but could not afford this extra burden.  Bad policy. 

Also had a few not so nice things happen but do not want to give anyone the wrong impression.  We were there a long time and it is worth a ski there.  Probably not a place for beginners as the mountain does not cater well for beginners.

Pros: nice terrain, very international clientelle

Cons: LONG waits on weekends

A big hill, lots of trails. Conditions were hardpack when I was there in Feb 2009, but they do a good job grooming, I would love ot go back, despite the looooong drive from Boston, if they had great snow.
The line for the gondola is nasty on the weekend. Very slow and tedious. Base village is cool, if a bit pretentious. People are nice, but the french canadians are a little hard to understand to my american ears. Just make sure you say "Hello" to people so they know you're not Quebecois.

Tremblant is the first place I skied a superpipe. That was fun!

Pros: Close to home

Cons: Weather unpredictable

I've been skiing Tremblant for the past 11 seasons and the only problem I have is that you never know what you are going to get as far as weather and ski conditions are concerned. I've skied here with rain and foggy conditions to -35 celius icy conditions, I've seen lots of snow at times and very little snow at times. The nightlife realy rocks, but that nothing to do with the mountain.
