The Tremblant Story

01 Jul

tremblant new
On the shores of Lake Tremblant, just outside the Village of Mont Tremblant in the Quebec Laurentians, is the Resort of Tremblant by Intrawest. The mountain, with the Pedestrian Village at its base and Condominiums dotting the hillside, provides an impressive sight for visitors and ski season is an ideal time to experience all the fun this winter wonderland has to offer. There are so many types of accommodations, restaurants, shops and activities to experience that every member of the family and every type of family is sure to find everything to meet their needs.

Accommodation of all kinds can by booked at great prices through
Tremblant VIP Lodging
.

Village entertainment has a tradition of warmth and excitement with an unmistakable French-Canadian joie de vivre. Street clowns and musicians surprise and delight. Irresistible boutiques, movie theatres and sizzling nightlife add to the magic that is Tremblant.

There is a sense of élan about the French, oui? And here at Tremblant you will discover all the flavors of Europe along with some of the most magnificent ski terrain in eastern Canada. The highest peak in the Laurentians at 3,001 feet, Tremblant will tempt you with over 2,000 feet of vertical including 121 acres of the best tree skiing anywhere.

Skiing and snowboarding are the main activities during the winter with plenty of options on how best to enjoy the 92 trails over 610 acres of skiable terrain serviced by 13 lifts.
The Adventure Centre, located in Sommet des Neiges and accessible from Place St. Bernard is where visitors go to begin their exploration of Mont Tremblant. This one stop shop at the base of the mountain is were lift tickets, rentals, and lessons can all be arranged and it’s where our family’s exploration of this winter wonderland began.

The Snow School Bell, one of the meeting places for lessons is right outside the Centre.

Lift and lesson tickets kids can be dropped off at their group lesson for a day of skiing fun – including lunch in a special heated tent. Depending on the age of children, group lessons meet at the Kidz Club magic carpet, the Tent at the new “Equilibre” beginner area, Snow School Bell or Snowboard Shack. The Program schedule details meeting areas for lessons, but it doesn’t hurt to check ahead of time to confirm where the kids are to meet their instructors One day group lessons for children 3 to 12 years of age are offered daily and include lunch. On weekends half day lessons are also available in the afternoon. The 2000-2001 winter season saw over 7,500 kids enjoy group lessons at the Kidz Club. Whow!! They must be doing something right.

Then it was time for us to head off and sample some of the 46.6 miles of trails on Mont Tremblant. Info-ski guides are available for a free one-hour tour of the mountain but we decided to head off on our own until 3:00 pm when we had to be back to pick up the kids.

Locals recommend that you ski or snowboard on the North Side in the morning. We assumed that this was because most visitors ski the south side first so the North Side is not as busy in the morning and subsequently the South Side is not as busy in the afternoon.

The North Side also features the Gravity Park. Designed for Experts, this area combines a Super Halfpipe, Quarter Pipe, Rollers, Tabletops, Spines, Backturns and Two Rail sections. The Mini Gravity Park nearby is where beginners get a chance to practice their skills.

If you are planning to bring along a non-skier aged 1 to 6 years, Mother Nature Daycare Camp offers a safe, supervised facility. Pagers are available for added peace of mind while parents are on the slopes or partaking a lesson.
When it comes time to satisfy a hungry family, there are more than 35 on-site restaurants to choose from. Here’s what we sampled:
• The buffet dinner served at Windigos in The Fairmont Tremblant provided plenty of choices to suit even my fussy 8 year old’s tastes.
• Pizzateria for lunch gave us a variety of choices for some interesting pizza combinations. Mozzarella Pizza or Spaghettini is offered as children’s menu items.
• Casey’s, in the Marriott Residence Inn has typical roadhouse fare. We did a family favorite of choosing a few appetizers and sharing them.

If you are looking for some après ski fun there are plenty of options also. Dogsledding, Snowmobiling, Horseback Riding, Snow Shoeing, Ice Climbing, Tubing, Sleighriding and Spa services can be booked through the Activity Centre.

Just because the snow is flying at Tremblant, you don’t want to forget your bathing suits (or if you do you can always purchase one) for a visit to La Source. Go to La Source Aquaclub at Tremblant, Pools and Fitness Centre. There are also hot tubs to enjoy with other winter enthusiasts.

If shopping is one of your passions -unfortunately it is one of mine- you won’t be disappointed either. From clothing to toys for girls and boys along with souvenirs and plenty of snow boarding and skiing accessories, a stroll down the main pedestrian walkway or the hotel lobbies is sure to offer something you just have to have.

With so much to do and so many trails to explore on the mountain it’s no wonder so many families visit the winter wonderland of the Tremblant Resort. Then there is all the fun offered in the summer but that’s another story.

Don’t forget that Tremblant VIP Lodging offers its Price Guarantee – you can’t go wrong.

Ski Tremblant

Why Ski in Mont-Tremblant?

Mont-Tremblant is the premier resort for four season fun and relaxation. This corner of paradise offers the spring and summer vacationer golf, water sports, horseback riding, biking, festivals and so much more for all the family to enjoy. In fall the leaves begin to change and colourfully announce the arrival of a magical and special time of year – winter!!!

As the snow begins to cover the trees and mountain tops and the lakes freeze, Mont-Tremblant changes its costume from vivid fall colors to glistening white with bright blues skies. The area abounds in winter time sports and fun – dog sledding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing and, of course, skiing!

Tremblant has been voted the number one ski resort in Eastern North America, year after year by ski publications and avid skiers. It raises a majestic 2871 feet into the air, has 94 trails, the longest being 3.75 miles and altogether there are 625.5 acres of ski able ground.

There are trails for beginners, intermediates and at least 47 trails for skiing experts. Not quite sure how to go down a slope gracefully and safely, enrol in “Snow School” where lessons are provided for small groups of adults, teens and even toddlers and babies. Private lessons are also available.

Tremblant’s lift system handles 27,230 skiers per hour so there’s no wasting of fun time waiting to get to the top. You can choose the Gondola for an impressive, overall view of the mountain and surrounding area, high-speed quads or magic carpets.

For the hungry skier or mountain visitor, there are many lunch spots that offer warming hot chocolate and soups, sandwiches or complete meals.

While on skis discover the mountain’s long history by taking advantage of a free guided tour. Learn the origins of trail names. Seek out the prime lookouts, the sunniest trails and the little-know rest stops. The tour lasts 45 to 60 minutes and is available to skiers of all skill levels.

Be certain to sample some of the other wintertime sports and activities. For the very adventuresome there is ice climbing or riding the snowmobile. Snowshoeing is a great alternative if cross-country skiing. Sleigh rides are great for the whole family or for a romantic evening with someone special.

Due to the incredibly high number of tourists that visit Mont-Tremblant, finding the right kind of accommodation is key. Tremblant VIP Lodging has one of the best selections of accommodation in the region along with great prices.

 
 

Domaine de la Foret – Le Plateau

03 Jan

If you’re looking for slope-side accommodations at Tremblant, you’ll find plenty to choose from to suit your individual needs and tastes.

You might have already found your own particular favourite spot, but we encourage you to mix it up a bit. We’ve had the privilege of staying at several places around the mountain, and if we’ve learned anything, it’s that… well quite honestly, we’ve enjoyed our stay at all of them! They each offer something unique and trying something new is part of the fun too! After all, variety is the spice of life.

In this review, we’ll be featuring Le Plateau, which can be found quietly tucked away in the upper right hand corner of Tremblant’s Domaine De La Forêt.

Situated in a particularly picturesque part of the mountain, guests of Le Plateau will enjoy a more cottage like atmosphere, along with contemporary modern styling. Guests will feel more like part of a quiet community, centered around a large pond perfect for skating on during the winter, as well as an outdoor pool for the summer.

We were particularly impressed at how well the area was maintained. After a large snowfall during the night, staff worked during the day to clear the pond, and by the evening, families where already out skating again with their children. The skating pond is also well lit at night.

Le Plateau offers deluxe condos that range from studios to 1, 2, 3 or 4 bedroom units (the one photographed below is a 2 bedroom condo). They offer a long list of comforts, which include:
• Large fireplaces,
• Fully equipped kitchens,
• TV/VCR’s,
• Wireless internet access (high speed!),
• Washer/dryer,
• Private deck,
• Parking (with power outlets for block heaters),
• Tremblant’s Merchant discount booklet,
• Certificate for 1 free day of access (per registered guest) to Tremblant’s Aquaclub La Source in the Resort Village.
• Includes first tracks and evening activities.
• Outdoor equipment locker.

Inside, you’ll find comfortably spacious living & dining areas that are both warm and inviting. The layout is perfect for entertaining friends, and fire logs are provided if you’d like to retire in front of a warm fireplace.

Of particular interest, is the heated kitchen floor that makes cooking a joy after a long day on the mountain (which also doubles as a great place to park your boots, so they’re warm and toasty when you head out in the morning!). Bedrooms are tastefully furnished and the master bedroom pictured below also had its own large en-suite bath & jacuzzi.

Getting to and from the mountain is made easy through a variety of options, most convenient of which, is a beautiful trail that runs through the area directly down to the P2 chair lift. The trail runs under the main roadway, so it’s safe for the kids because they won’t have to cross any roads (as do many of the other accommodations at Tremblant too).

There’s also a shuttle service that runs both ways, which will pick you up within a few minutes of a phone call on weekdays, and frequently scheduled pick-up times on the weekend.

For those of you who enjoy walking (we should point out there are also some great hiking trails nearby in Parc National du Mont-Tremblant), the Resort Village is only about a 10 minute walk away if you’d like to park the car for an evening out.

All things considered, we highly recommend Tremblant’s Le Plateau to families and couples looking for a slope-side, cozy cottage-like atmosphere!

Book your accommodation through Tremblant VIP Lodging to get the best price in the resort area.
