Tremblant Resort Guide
Insider tips from our team
- Childcare - The Kidz Club offers fantastic childcare for children from 1 to 6 years old. Conveniently located in the Sommet des Neiges hotel at the base of the slopes and the top of the pedestrian village, their morning, afternoon or full day programmes let you enjoy the mountain without worrying about your child. For babysitting or nanny services Kimberlee Care have a fantastic reputation.
- Transportation - Tremblant offers a complimentary resort shuttle for all lodging guests. It runs approximately every 10 minutes at established stops throughout the resort. Please note that children 14 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. Most of the accommodation is ski in ski out due to the cabriolet lift that runs from the base of the village to the base of the lifts.
- Weather - It does get cold in Tremblant particularly in December to early February so we recommend that you prepare for the cold - face masks will make skiing a lot more enjoyable! There are plenty of places to buy extra layers in resort.
- Supermarkets - The Magasin Général is great for all your essentials. They have a choice of beer and wine, groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, fine cheeses, pastries, frozen meals, newspapers, personal hygiene, tobacco products and some drugstore items. For alcoholic beverages the Société des Alcools du Québec is your best bet.
- Pharmacy - Please note there is no pharmacy in resort.
The ski area offers a surprisingly big variety of skiing with over half the mountain appropriate for advanced skiers. Novices will appreciate being able to ski down from nearly any lift, making life much easier for mixed ability groups. For the more adventurous there is some fantastic glade skiing and four snowparks, the main one of which requires a pass of approx. $10 per day.
- Make use of the free mountain hosting to get yourself orientated on the first day. They meet each day at 10.30 am at the top of the Telecabine Express, at the large piste map as you come off the gondola.
- On-mountain stop recommendation - Le Refuge off the right of Le Soleil chair is a great little place to stop with a real cosy cabin feel. Good for a mid-afternoon snack.
- Activity Centre - Tremblant offers so much more than just skiing. Dog-sledding, ice climbing, e-fat biking and snowmobiling are just some of the fantastic activities the whole family can enjoy and they can all be booked at the activity centre at the base of the Télécabine.
- An absolute must on a trip to Tremblant is a visit to Le Scandinave Spa, just 10 minutes outside of Tremblant - saunas, steam rooms, hot and cold pools and for those brave enough, a dip in the river. We suggest going in the early evening. You'll find around two hours in the baths enough and then you can chill out afterwards in the upstairs cafe. The concierge at your accommodation will be able to book for you and organise transportation if you don't have your own car.
- Brind'O Aquaclub - Revamped for December 2019, the pool now has four slides, 35 "interactive water games", and a whirlpool. There's a family indoor hot tub and an outdoor hot tub for adults only. Even the fitness centre has been refurbished. Open daily from 10/11 am to 6/7 pm (depending on day/dates in season).
- Casino de Mont-Tremblant - The casino is open Thursday to Sunday.
- Le Studio Créatif - A paint-it-yourself ceramics studio that lets you and the kids paint you own pottery and create a unique souvenir. Perfect for those days when the weather just isn't very inviting.
- Mission Laser & Mission Liberté - Laser Tag and an Escape Room!
We can book some of these directly for you - speak to your tour coordinator or call us on 01273 224063.
