This Winter, Take Me Away: Take Me to Tremblant

What's New This Winter

MONT-TREMBLANT, QC--(Marketwired - October 07, 2014) - November 21 marks the opening date of the slide sport season at Tremblant, ranked among the World's 25 Best Ski Towns in 2014 by National Geographic, and #1 Ski Resort in Eastern North America by SKI Magazine. Winter 2014-15 proposes countless fresh experiences including a newly designated Kids Zone, new glades, an Alpine Touring Festival, a new big-name hotel establishment, noteworthy tech news as well as direct flights between Toronto and Tremblant on Air Canada. 

On-Mountain: New Adventure Zone for Kids 3-12, and Glades for Grown-Ups 
In the tracks of its 75th anniversary celebrating young mountain aficionados of tomorrow, Tremblant is pleased to offer families a new kids' zone that expands their slide skills through play. Set to roll out the white carpet in December and accessed via the Nansen Bas, the TAM-TAM Zone includes turns, features and obstacles and covers some aspects of the Mountain Code of Conduct. Grown-ups also have a new playground -- next to The Tunnel trail are 8 acres of exciting new glades. 

In the Village: Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tremblant Makes Grand Entrance, Westin Resort & Spa Renovations Nearing Completion & Other New Businesses Too 
Tremblant is definitely a destination that knows how to renew itself. A new Holiday Inn Express opens its doors early season, while in late October the Westin Resort & Spa Tremblant adds the final touches to its total makeover. As well, new businesses are hanging a shingle in the pedestrian village: Oh! La Vache serving sweet treats and coffee, Gypsy restaurant showcasing Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at the newly renovated Westin Resort & Spa, and Samurai Sushi Pub featuring contemporary Japanese flavours.

More Accessible than Ever: New Direct Flights between Toronto & Tremblant 
Air Canada is offering new non-stop daily flights between Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Mont-Tremblant International Airport (YTM), complementing the Porter Airlines offer departing from Billy-Bishop Airport. In addition to a whole new range of possibilities for resort visitors, the service's practical flight schedule also allows for international flight connections from December 18 2014 to March 30 2015. Tickets are on sale at www.aircanada.com.

New Tech & Toys: Free Wi-Fi at the Summit & New Alpine Replay App 
Tecchies are sure to appreciate the new wireless Internet access offered free of charge by TELUS at the summit. Tremblant is now among the ski areas served by the free Alpine Replay App that lets users record personal stats about their day out on the trails, then replay and compare notes with other app users. It can even be synched with a GoPro-type camera to later share content with the Tremblant Facebook Community, the top ski destination in the East on social media with 100,000 fans. 

New & Classic Must-Attend Events 
On Tremblant's list of now classic events, the 24h of Tremblant is celebrating its 14th edition this season with over $14M collected for sick kids since its beginnings. Joining this year's traditional Burton El Nino, Local Hero, Caribou Cup and Super Demo Days is a new Alpine Touring Festival. With two days of demos, exhibitions, guided treks, friendly racing and clinics, the event aims to increase the visibility here in Quebec of this highly popular sport in Europe, the U.S. and western Canada. 

Tremblant: Take Me to the Top 
Tremblant is a top resort destination owing to the excellence of its four-season guest experience both at the mountain, and in its pedestrian village. Its views of the Laurentians, the diversity of its offer and its highly acclaimed major events -- of which IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant, 24h of Tremblant, Wanderlust and the Tremblant International Blues Festival -- have earned it a place among the World's 25 Best Ski Towns in 2014 according to National Geographic, and the title of #1 Ski Resort in Eastern North America for a 17th time by SKI Magazine readers. With family, friends or your sweetheart, Tremblant welcomes vacationers and groups flying direct from Toronto with Air Canada and Porter Airlines, to enjoy 1,900 lodging units fanned out across 13 hotel establishments, over 75 restaurants, boutiques and a Casino, all at nature's doorstep.
