Mt Tremblant is made up of a North Side and a South Side and over 50% of the terrain is expert only. Since the entire mountain is below tree line, the most challenging runs are bumps and glades.
On the South Side, the sweet line is Vertige to Zig Zag to Flying Mile. It'll give you a rush from top to bottom. But there are lots of runs that will test your skills on the South Side – Grand Prix, Fripp, Dunzee, and Ryans for example. The South Side has more terrain and great views.
The North Side has the better snow. It also has the park and pipe. Ski Emotion on the Versant Edge or CBC to get some of the mountain's best tree skiing. Or take Expo's steep face right to the parking lot.
Mt Tremblant is a classy place that does "everything" at high standards. This makes it perfect for families because there is so much to do – dog sledding, tubing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, specialty shopping, cinema watching, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, aquatic center, skiing, spas, massages, and more. But what Tremblant brings to the activity scene is adventure. Take the family ice climbing on a cliff face, helicopter tour the enchanting scenery, do a challenging aerial winter rope course, blast paintballs in ten different arenas.
If the kids aren't ready for what Tremblant has to offer, day care is available and so is a world-class ski school.
Food and Restaurants.
If you can't get enough of the skiing and want to eat on the fly you can grab a quick bite at Café Johannsen at the Base Telecabine or enjoy the views at the summit when you eat at the Grand Manitou – both offer the usual on-mountain food – burgers, pizza, salads, fries, chili, and more.
Tremblant's restaurant scene really is impressive. Anything your pallet desires, you can have. Feel like a coffee and a waffle? Try Brulerie Saint-Denis. Vegetarian? Try Coco Pazzo. Into fresh juices? Go to Fluide. Love crepes? Try Creperie Catherine. How about French food? Go to L'Avalanche or Les Artistes. Good old-fashioned steak? Eat at Resto-bar Casey's. Asian cuisine tonight? Try Yamada. As you can tell, you can eat anything in Tremblant.
Après ski will quickly turn into early morning partying with a DJ at Tremblant's best party bar - Bar Café d'Epoque. Or enjoy the lounge at Ski Canada's Best Bar in Eastern Canada – Le P'tit Caribou. Or if you just have to catch the latest in sports, go to Le Shack.
