Tremblant: #1 Ski Village in Eastern North America

MONT-TREMBLANT, QC--(Marketwired - November 10, 2015) - For the 18th time, SKI Magazine readers have placed Tremblant at the top of their list of favourite ski villages in the East, both in Canada and across the USA. Here are a few reasons why Tremblant was voted top winter destination by resort vacationers.

More Accessible than Ever

In under 65 minutes, travellers on direct flights with Porter Airlines from Toronto (Billy Bishop) land at Mont-Tremblant International Airport, while Air Canada offers non-stop flights from Toronto (Pearson) to Tremblant as well as connecting flights through New York (La Guardia). The moment the plane lands, the contrasts are startling: the wooden terminal reminds guests of "a faraway cabin in Canada", while the welcome is as warm as the ambience within. With one terminal, big city airport delays are nonexistent. And the exchange rate is a huge bonus for our American neighbours!

The Biggest Skiable Terrain in Eastern Canada

Tremblant offers 662 skiable acres across 4 mountain faces. A huge playground with 96 trails and 3 terrain parks to suit every taste and calibre, with an arsenal of over one thousand snow guns on a non-stop enhancement mission including -- and new this year, to open sooner -- air pipes on Versant Soleil, 14 lifts take slide sport fans to their personal peak.

A Village Where Everything -- Absolutely Everything -- Can Be Reached on Foot!

Once that car is parked, restaurants, boutiques, cinema, a Casino and the lifts are all within walking distance from hotels. Just a few steps away, guests enjoy all the charm of a village with a European flair, its free events and lively outdoor shows.

13 Lodging Establishments, 5 World-Class Hotel Chains

Including mountainside addresses, 1,900 lodging units -- from guestrooms and studios to condos - are tucked away under the pedestrian village's colourful rooftops. Many of these fly acclaimed banners -- Fairmont, Westin Resort & Spa, Marriott Residence Inn, Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Homewood Suites Hilton.

Poutine, Foie Gras and… Kale!

Our gourmand village brims with specialties from around the globe, from Swiss fondue and crêpes bretonnes to pasta, pad thai, burgers and Creole classics from the Bayou. But you really haven't experienced Tremblant if you haven't tasted its traditional poutine, maple taffy on snow, microbrewery beer or the vitamin-rich beverages served up at Marie-Claude's Juice Bar.

Thirty or So Specialty Boutiques

Find it all at Tremblant -- sporting goods, prêt-à-porter apparel, jewelry, furs, artwork, toys and specialty foods. Among the resort's many fine addresses are Burton, Salomon, Atomic, Oakley, Roots, Lolë, Betty Barclay, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and David's Tea.

Après Skis that Stretch Late into the Night

Come evening, the slopeside village is ablaze: illuminated tubing hill and skating rink, public squares aglow with outdoor fireplaces, kitchens where signature dishes are simmered and flambéd, moody lounges and bars where guests can dance the night away.

Outstanding Must-Attend Sports, Culture & Family Events

Tremblant events last well into April and start early season with the most sought-after charity event in the industry -- Tremblant's 24h (December 4-6). And along come the holiday season's festivities, the Super Demo Series (December 12 & 28, February 6 & March 5), Alpine Touring Festival (January 8-10), Legends Classic (February 27), the acclaimed Caribou Cup (April 2) and wrapping it up on an exciting note, the Burton El Nino (April 3).

A Casino at the Foot of the Trails!

Anything but traditional, Casino de Mont-Tremblant sits at the foot of Versant Soleil. With ski boots on, discover its warm, inviting atmosphere, generous views and artwork, or relax in its trendy lounge restaurant and have fun at countless gaming tables.

Rain or Shine, Tremblant is Always Just Grand

Why not design your own teddy bear with your kids, paint pottery, see a movie or dip over to one of countless heated pools and spas or just relax with an in-room or wellness centre massage? Every day is a holiday, at Tremblant.

A Group & Corporate Destination Where Having Fun Feels So Good

Corporate and other groups enjoy a total of 60,000 ft2 divided among 52 conference rooms, two convention centres for meetings and banquets, two cinemas and a panoramic chalet at 875 metres above sea level! All within walking distance of hotels, restaurants, boutiques and a mountain of activities.
