With its multi-coloured buildings and French influences, a ski holiday to Tremblant, is an attractive choice for anyone looking for a relaxing ski break with good food and stylish accommodation and just a short trip from the UK.
Tremblant’s ski area will appeal mainly to novices and intermediates, but there is a variety of terrain on both sides of Mont Tremblant, with something for everyone, including testing tree runs and with stunning views of the Laurentians from the summit.
Due to its nature a Tremblant ski holiday suits families particularly and children are well catered for. Mixed ability parties will also find the resort of interest; in addition to around 50 miles of trails, there is one of the best terrain parks in North America, which hosts 40+ features split across three separate sectors, each suited to help progress from the basics to extreme freestyle. There are daily free guided tours as well as a wealth of courses on offer from the ski school.
$14 million dollars has recently been invested in the resort this season, with the focus on enhanced snowmaking capacity, with Versant Soleil’s Algonquin trail being better equipped to offer skiers additional beginner and intermediate terrain.

Tremblant village offers a delightful mix of slopeside lodging, restaurants and shopping around a very pleasant, pedestrianised centre, making Tremblant a popular choice for families. Accommodation ranges from the luxurious Quintessence Hotel to a huge range of ski-in/ski-out condo-style apartments.
The small village is packed with boutiques, restaurants, pubs and clubs. On a ski holiday in Tremblant you will find superb food from light snacks to gastronomical feasts and there is often some live entertainment in the form of fire eaters, clowns or live music – typical of the Québécois’ determination to enjoy themselves! Try lively Le Shack for après ski or a taste of fine French dining at La Savoie. If you want to try the traditional Quebec dish of poutine (essentially cheesy chips with gravy!), then head to Smoke’s Poutinerie There is also a small convenience store in the village and a supermarket in neighbouring St Jovite about 20 minutes drive away.
There are several traditional winter activities such as dog-sledding, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing available for your Tremblant ski holiday, along with a cinema, spa and La Source Aquaclub (indoor and outdoor pool and hot tubs and a fully-equipped fitness centre). The tubing slopes stay open late into the evening, or alternatively you can try your luck at the Casino de Mont Tremblant.
The resort is a short hop from the delights of Montreal, itself just seven hours flight from the UK, so why not add on a city break to your ski holiday and explore this wonderful city?

Frontier’s Personal Experience
“The picturesque village of Tremblant is like a picture-postcard, with its colourful buildings and its distinctly French flavour. Best of all the food on offer throughout the resort is amazing – make sure you try the local dish of poutine from Smoke’s Poutinerie!”Julie Thompson,
