Best snow and weather, we have always had a great trip in February. All trains open and lots of snow on the ground.

“Convenient and fun getaway ski weekend for East Coasters”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

We were looking to take a long spring ski weekend from DC so we looked at Aspen and Mont Tremblant. I'd been to the former during a December and figured early March would be great. But looking at the flight options and time zone change we opted to try MT for the first time. All that we read described a quaint Aspen-like village. We ended up going on the weekend between Quebec school break and Ontario spring break. You would have thought it would be packed but it was not. We heard that they lost 10 inches of snow of Thursday due to heavy rain. We arrived Friday afternoon, got our ski rentals and just took in the village. Not too much going on. Saturday was very icy but the runs we're not crowded. We stuck to the green runs. The evening skating was finished for the season as I asse the temps in the mid 40s had a lot to due with that. They did have evening tubing which was a long line a one tube at a time one one run. Sunday conditions got better after a night of grooming. I ran a few blues and they tended to be more icy than the grommed greens. Took in some runs down the north side which were less busy (not that either side was crowded). Monday was even better and sunshine drove temps into the 50s. Ran up and down the north and south side until it was time to leave. Had a nice lunch al fresco to unwind. All the food was very good and we went to a different place each day. As expected in a ski village it was all very expensive. On longer trips we will go to Colorado for the better snow.

“Skiing Mont Tremblant - March Break 2012”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

When you can go from you car to the top of a hill with minimal walking.. especially in ski boots.. life couldn't be better..

I'm happy the morning had a little rain...less traffic on the hills.. the runs were fantastic all day, great grooming job!. The tricks park.WOW! Wish I could....
info from a strangers at the top... helping you choose the best runs.. AWESOME!
The food on the north side.. I'll go back anyday.. Soup! WOW! and the choices were great. Being able to sit outside and enjoy lunch was a nice change too.

A few runs on the south side in the morning, but once the sun comes out and warms the snow... head to the north side. The runs are fantastic.

“Well thought out”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Loved:
1. Lifts that will take you anywhere: starting from the Cabriolet, to which you can ski down from any hotel, that will take you to the mountain base. The Panoramic Cabin which takes 8 ppl, moves the line reasonably fast. Lifts in general move fairly well, nicely planned out line-up.s
2. Saturday night dance party: when we were there they set up a stage, lights, music, DJ and were spinning awesome music! Not everyone was dancing, but we were! The atmosphere was very happy.
3. Fires: these are set up throughout the village and create that unique smell of burning wood that adds to the outdoorsy feeling.
4. Variety of food: there are different price points, cuisines, and styles. They are all a bit more expensive than normal, but then again, it's a resort village, so it's to be expected.
5. Board on the summit that tells you how long the wait is for all the lifts. Excellent information, much appreciated. Helped us make the most of our time on the slopes but helping us plan our trail choices.
6. Overall experience: even during busy times, we didn't feel like we were spending forever in a line-up. The village was clean and well maintained.
7. Ski-down to your hotel: the trail that runs along the village where we could ski pretty much to the door of our hotel was awesome!
8. English speaking staff: everyone from the hotel to the restaurants to the lifts and ticket sales spoke decent English. No dirty looks, no ignoring us because we have an accent.

“Spring-like skiing at Tremblant”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Location: Mt Tremblant is located about 125km north of Montreal. It's size and location near Monteal makes it a favourite destination for recreation so it can get quite crowded.
Logistics: If one is to drive in and ski for the day, you will have to appreciate that there is a considerable distance between the parking lots 2 and 3 and the base. There is a bus that is free to skiers who park (for free) in these lots, but you are dragging a lot of equipment to the base. From parking lot 2 and 3, due to the distance, you can not walk carrying your gear. Even in lot 1, there is quite a bit of walking to get to the lift.
Sk Lifts: I have been told that it is not unusal during a busy day that skiers might have to wait one hour to get onto the gondola from the base of the mountain to get to the peak. There is only one main lift to the very top at the village side. Once at the top and skiers disperse, there is no need to ski right to the bottom again because skiers can find a lift from mid-mountain to the peak again. You are recommended to go early to avoid the initial lines at the gondola.
Faciliites: We ate at the top of the peak. There is a two level facility at the very peak. At the top is a large cafeteria. At the lower level is a smaller cafeteria that does not have all of the hot options and it has fewer tables. At the lower level, they will tolerate patrons bringing a bagged lunch - but apparently not on the upper floor. Expect that food costs are higher because you are a captive customer. Three orders of poutine and one coke cost about $23.
Lockers: We found some lockers at the base of the mountain in a coffee shop near the place that sells tickets on the village side facing the gondola. There are also some lockers at the lodge at the peak. Note that the mountain closes promptly and if you have your stuff in a locker, the locker facility might close if you do not get to it. To illustrate, the coffee shop locks its doors at 4PM. If your stuff is in their public locker, you might be out of luck.
Trails: With children, we stayed mostly on the greens (and some blues). The benefit of Tremblant greens is the duration of the run. The trails are long and have varying terrain which makes it more interesting and comes with a good view. Note that with the deteriorting snow, some parts of the green trails towards the bottom flatten out so if you loose your momentum, you will get stuck having to shuffle along.
Overall: The size of the mountain itself is the attraction. We appreciated the varying trails and their length. There is enough ski options at Tremblant to merit a return visit. Next time we want to explore the village and a few more trails.
