In 2014, National Geographic ranked this destination among the world’s 25 best ski towns
In just a few short years, Intrawest, followed by the Fortress Investment Group LCC—who acquired the operation in 2006—succeeded in making Mont-Tremblant the #1 Ski Resort in Eastern North America (according to SKI Magazine) and an internationally renowned four-season resort that lures millions of visitors.
At the base of the slopes lies a European-style alpine village whose charm never fails to delight anyone who sets foot in it. In 2014, National Geographic ranked this destination among the world’s 25 best ski towns. The casino, accommodation (1,900 units) and restaurant services (over 30 eateries) further add to the international stature of the region.
Not content to rest on their laurels, over the past two years, Tremblant and its merchants invested $33 million in the resort, chiefly in the mountain and the pedestrian village. Improvements on the mountain include snowmaking upgrades, two snow groomers, renovations to the main summit chalet, training centre and aquatic complex (4 new slides and 35 interactive water games), and the acquisition of a food truck that travels up and down the mountain. Enhancements in the village include major renovations to the lodging units and common areas at the Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel complex, new virtual reality games, including two car racing simulators, an award-winning educational adventure and two interactive experiences based on the Spider-Man movie.
While this is obviously exciting news for skiers, anyone who visits the village in other seasons will also benefit from these makeovers and additions. Although skiing remains Tremblant’s go-to attraction, golf comes in a close second, as the region vaunts some of the best golf courses in Quebec. It attracts scores of international calibre events, including the 24h sports challenge, the Sportium’s Ironman triathlon, the half-marathon, its international jazz and blues festivals and the highly popular fall concert series that takes place when the glorious colours are at their peak.
