Visitor reviews for Mont Tremblant Ski Resort
November 23, 2016
Wayne from Canada
I have been skiing Tremblant for about 12 years now. During the week the skiing is excellent; not too many people (weekends are very busy). Runs are in excellent shape. Remember, it is always windy at Tremblant. Prices in the cafeterias are steep. I always bring my own lunch. The T66 is a good purchase with the exception that they start it too early in the season. Therefore, one is wasting money because ski conditions are not great; runs are limited. I was up Dec 22 one year. Four runs open at the top only and two of them were occupied by the down hill racers. Who, in most cases, have the attitude they own the hill. I would recommend it as a place to go. Just bring lots of money for meals if staying over night.

Mont Tremblant has lost its purpose and history. We stayed in a condo next to the hill; I could not believe how the area has fallen to late night drunks walking the streets and vandalism. Not a place to bring young kids or family.
During the day it has a lot of activities (expensive) but make sure your kids are in early.
I used to ski and hike Tremblant years ago, now not sure what we should call this area.

Went to Mont Tremblant in January 2010 with a friend and had a terrific time. Tremblant was so beautiful with some nice places to eat and drink. As I had not been skiing for a couple of years Tremblant was a great place to help me get back my confidence - returning January 2011.

Had a great week's ski holiday in Mont Tremblant (Jan 7th); snow conditions were fab. Be warned that this early in the season it is very cold (-20 down to -30 and a bit was not uncommon). Did not stop us skiing all day from 10am 'till lift close at 3.30pm. But you did feel the cold on the lifts. Just wrap up warm and enjoy. The mountain is not that big compared to some alpine resorts, but there is enough for all levels to keep happy for a week.
The village is very pretty and prices for food and drink are not that bad compared to Europe with the current state of the euro against the pound killing us Brits at the mo. I would go back to Mont Tremblant at some point in the future.

Mont Tremblant is a great resort with plenty of varied skiing for the family with different ski ability. My family's favourite run was Fuddle Duddle and Windigo. The weather was verrrry cold some days. e.g -26 but we kept on skiing so wrap up warm. We stayed at Blueberry Lake Resort in Labelle (20 mins away). What pure luxury; beautiful log homes with roaring fires and you don't even have to fetch the logs. Hot tubs by the house and a fab restaurant there too. Can't wait to return .

Great skiing, friendly people and a relaxing time. It was cold and windy, but this comes with winter sports. The microbrewery, Le Diable, served a delightful variety of beers and good food, all at an extremely reasonable price. We will be back next winter.

A fantastic resort for a short break. We found phoning and hiring condo really cheap and at least you can relax. The town looks a bit 'Disney' at first but there's more to it than the main street. There is a microbrewery, La Diable (yes,I know - Quebec french!) with great food and a choice of fabulous ales, pastry shops and a great cafe with lots of flavoured syrups for your coffee; try hazlenut and vanilla. Some art shops have amazing native painting, sculptures etc at a price, but what a find. Yes, it can be bitterly cold, but with the sun shining too. My goggles iced up on the inside and I brought us down the double-black-diamond run by mistake - oops! Scary - but a great feeling to have done it.

What a fantastic ski resort, not as challenging as many alpine resorts, but very well prepared pistes.
Wrap up though it can get very cold -25 deg C is not unusual!

Fantastic family resort. Excellent ski school and equipment hire. Extremely cold at times but never stopped us from skiing. Snow making machines keep the runs open. Friendly people without exception.
Moderate sized ski area but great variety for all levels for a week's holiday.
