Tremblant has a good variety of terrain for all skiers……
A heated gondola from the village takes you to the top of the so-called South Side (really south-west facing and so good for the afternoon sun). From here you can drop over the back onto the North Side (which is really north-east facing and gets the morning sun). A high-speed quad brings you back and there are two other chairs to play on here plus the Edge lift which accesses another summit, serving mainly expert terrain.
On the South Side you can go right back to town on blue or green runs, or use two high-speed quads to explore the top and bottom halves. The Versant Soleil area is more directly south-facing and has mainly black and tree runs with one top-to-bottom blue. Free mountain tours go twice daily.
Most of the lifts are fast.
On weekends there can be queues, but they tend to move quickly.
On the South Side is the 30-acre Adrenaline park and half-pipe for advanced riders. There’s a beginner park on the North Side. Helmets are compulsory in both parks. The school offers freestyle classes.
Half the runs are classified black, but we found many of them did not deserve their grading. There are steep, top-to-bottom bump runs on the North Side and great gladed tree runs off the Edge lift. The Versant Soleil area has more black runs and some tough runs in the trees.
Both North and South Sides have good cruising, and we found the North Side less crowded. There are blue runs in the trees as well as on groomed trails.
The 2-acre beginner area is excellent, and there are long, easy, top-to-bottom greens to progress to. There are plans to open up the Versant Soleil to beginners with a new green piste.
The slopes are good for beginners, but better boarders can’t count on fresh natural snow to play in. A specialist shop, Adrénaline, runs a Burton learn-to-ride programme. And there are good terrain parks.
There are around 65 km of trails, some at the top of the mountain, with great views.
The Kids’ Club… offers day care from ages one to six years. There’s a children’s adventure area on the Nansen trail.
