  Mont Tremblant resort is located north of Montreal in the Laurentian Mountains. Map of Laurentians Region The resort is much like a kingdom, resembling a small European village but with a large cities amenities.This is a cosmopolitan oasis in the middle of a beautiful natural setting. Superb restaurants, quiet bistros, lively bars and fascinating boutiques are all within a short walk of the world class accommodations. While the resort has a heavy French favour it is truly international. English is spoken everywhere, and assistance is available in many languages. It's important to make the distinction between Mont Tremblant Resort (on the mountains south side) and the nearby older village of Mont Tremblant.
The historic village is a short 4km drive from the mountain. There is a path which connects the two, used for cycling or roller blading in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter. The village has recently merged with Ste. Jovite to form the City of Mont Tremblant.
Mont Tremblant is considered the premier ski resort in eastern North America. On the mountain in the winter you'll find three separate ski or boarding areas in the form of the Versant Soleil, the Versant Nord and the main area, the Versant Sud. Each is accessible from the main lifts and each has a character all its own. The primary area, the Versant Sud, has a vertical of 649m (2131FT) with 39 trails and 7 lifts including the Gondola. The trails range from the easy 6km (3.75 Mile) Nansen to some wild double diamond steeps at the top of the mountain. The Versant Nord at 315m (1034FT) has a mix of slopes and glades ranging from some gentle runs all the way up to the fierce dips and drops of the Expo. Four lifts, including four high speed quads service the area.

There are extensive glades in the newest area, the Versant Soleil 581m (1905Ft) with several expert runs and an excellent intermediate combination running top to bottom, linking the Franc Sud, the Toboggan, and the Tapcul. These trails are serviced by a high-speed quad.

  Try your hand at ice climbing in the winter or pick up some cross country skis and disappear into the woods for a while. Snowshoeing is another great way to enjoy nature at the resort and is very easy to learn.
 

If none of these activities appeals to you, why not try something completely different and go for an exhilarating dogsled ride.

The resort has great mountain biking and hiking in the summer or you can book a rafting trip on the nearby Rouge River. Of course you can take advantage of the bike paths and the nearby P'tit Train du Nord if you want something a little tamer. Golfers are well served by the world class courses at the resort, Le Diable and Le Giant. Nearby you'll find a number of other excellent courses to challenge your best efforts. If your looking for a more relaxing approach to your vacation, have a look at the resorts beach, health club and spa.

The Tremblant area has phenomenal leaf viewing in the fall. Each year the resort puts on the "Festival of Colours" begging you to catch a ride on the gondola to the top of the mountain. A short distance from the top of the lift you'll find the observation tower where you'll get an unobstructed 360 degree view of the areas spectacular foliage. Check our events page for the dates and to learn more about other events and festivals in the area.

If your a real outdoors person don't miss a trip to Mont Tremblant Provincial Park.

In the winter the park is well know for its cross country skiing, with several cabins or huts which allow for extended backcountry trips. There is also winter camping and snow shoeing in the park. Just a 28km from the resort or about 25 minutes by car, don't miss this opportunity.
