Year round mountain resort Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada is currently undergoing a slew of major changes to improve the guest experience for this upcoming winter, $17-million worth of improvements to be exact.
Already voted as 4th best ski resort in Eastern North America, Mont Tremblant’s charming French resort is looking to further improve itself with a new high-speed quad chairlift, new trail and new glades, extension and renovation of the main chalet at the summit, refection of the chalet on the north Side, increase of the skiable terrain and expansion of the snowmaking capacity, and much more!
Headlining the major renovations is the new Lowell Thomas lift which serves the upper North side of the mountain. The lift will be replaced entirely by the “Dopplemayr detachable quad,” according to the official website. The new lift has the capacity to transport 600 skiers and snowboarders per hour.
After new lifts, what every skier wants to know about is new runs and/or terrain. Well, the good news here is five new glades and one trail will extend the mountain’s skiable terrains to 102 total trails.
The resort is also increasing their snowmaking capacity for the 2018-2019 campaign, adding two new on-mountain groomers, and at the base a $3.7 million investment is almost completed, offering improved guestrooms and common areas in the pedestrian village. The main summit building, Le Grand Manitou, will also be expanding. An increased showroom of windows will host 400 additional seats and a reinvented food court.
Mont Tremblant is one of 36 iconic destinations available on the Ikon Pass.
