Mountain ops: one last weekend to enjoy spring skiing!

#GoPro photo taken April 13, 2017

The last ski weekend is already upon us! Join us to celebrate the end of this wonderful season with Easter celebrations, village entertainment and more skiing until Monday!

Many of our ski trails still offer good snow cover. Nevertheless, with temperatures between 10 and 15°C during the day, snow melts quickly! Our team of groomers is currently working on moving tons of snow and preparing the trails in order to offer the best possible conditions. The mercury still falls below zero degrees Celsius during the night, so we will see hardened snow conditions in the morning. In order to enjoy the famous “slushy” spring snow, we will have to wait until the sun warms the slopes a little. From about 10-11am, most of the trails will be open.

TGV, Flying Mile, Sun, Duncan, Expo and Onésime lifts will serve up to 58 trails, from now until April 17, on the South, North and Soleil sides. Please note that lifts will have a later closing time on Saturday and Sunday.

Furthermore, our snow park lovers will be delighted to know that our 3 parks are open through closing day!

If you are with us for this last weekend, don’t miss our Easter celebrations. Easter is always a joyful event in Tremblant with fun activities for kids of all ages. Sunday, join us for an Easter egg hunt, face painting, musical atmosphere with DJ and new this year: a petting zoo with sheep, goats, chickens and rabbits!

Thank you for sharing another beautiful ski season with us 🙂

Looking forward to seeing you one last time on the slopes!

So with cycling season just around the corner and all these fun events ahead, it’s time to make sure your gear is as ready to roll as you are.

Here is our quick check list for safe biking:

Tires

After a few months hidden away in the shed or the garage, your bike’s tires will most likely be flat or low on air. Use an air pressure gauge to make sure your air pressure is at just the right level.  Depending on use, the tread of your tires should be checked as well to ensure they are still safe.

Cables and brakes

Your brake and gear cables need to be checked regularly, especially after hibernation. They’re constantly being used, so wear and tear is unavoidable. Pull on your brake levers to make sure they engage both sides of the brakes on each wheel. The brakes should not stick and should fully stop the wheel in motion.   Run your fingers over the length of the cables to check for damage. If you spot frayed or sticky cables, they should be replaced.

Chain

Look out for rust and grime. A good cleaning and some lubricant will make everything run smoother. Also check your chain tension by lightly pressing against the top chain, it should not move more than half an inch. If your chain is too lose it might come off while riding; too tight it can damage your gears.

Wheel

Spin the wheel! It should spin easily without quivering and there should be no contact between the rim and the brake pads.

Best advice is to plan a full tune up with our bike specialists at the Chalet des Voyageurs at the base of the Tremblant pedestrian village or with your favourite bike shop.

Have a great biking season 🙂
