Tremblant - Where to stay

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need help - it looks like the I'll be taking the family to Tremblant in early February for a week of skiing but I have no idea of where is the best place to stay.

Any recommendations?

Unless you can't afford it, and depending on the size of your family, you'll regret not staying right in the Village at the base of Tremblant. There are plenty of cheaper places that are a shuttle or short drive away, that are also very nice, but the Village is such a fantastic place, that you'll be kicking yourself for not staying there if it fits what you're looking for.

There are many places in the Village such as the St. Bernard, Johanssen, Marriot, etc. Just be prepared for some sticker shock.
With a family though you can save a lot of money just by skiing in for lunch because the on-mountain food is pretty expensive, even in USD prices.

The condos are very nice and have everything from heated kitchen tiles to fireplaces and a whirlpool bath.

Be very careful of the "ski in/ski out" condos up on the hill though.

I stayed at Le Plateau and was not impressed with how you could get on the slopes.

You need to be an upper beginner to intermediate to ski out especially if it is icy and to ski in from the mountain you need to be a good intermediate or above as it is narrow, icy, and you need to go over little bridges and down them with little room to throw your skis sideways.

You can always take the shuttle but those were not that reliable when I was there last January.

I just read on their website that they consider Le Plateau within walking distance of the village but it is a decent walk with ski equipment and it is downhill on a slushy road with two lanes of traffic so be careful.

Overall I would not go back to Treblant because of the drive, weather, conditions, and ski terrain but if I could say what the best part of the stay was, I would say the condos.

Also the food is pretty good if you are not lookin for upscale restaurants. Definately get some Mexican.

Stayed at Le Westin a few years ago over New Years. Top shelf facility...but definitely not a family setup, unless you're willing to shell out for a suite or something.

Agree with Scalce on Tremblant...good accomodations and village, but dicey weather and uninspiring terrain (at least at that time of year).
