If you’re looking for a new adventure in Tremblant, you’re in luck! Mission Liberté offers an enthralling form of year-round indoor entertainment right in the pedestrian village. Themed rooms will immerse you in a thrilling experience where you must solve riddles an locate clues in order to find the key to your freedom! In one hour, the goal is to successfully complete many small intellectual and physical challenges in teams of 2 to 12 people. Entering is easy, but exiting will require all your senses and keen observation skill.

Fun for all ages, this live action adventure game is excellent for groups of friends, date nights, corporate team building, and family reunions. Discover your detective abilities and other hidden talents as you and your teammates work together in solving a great and mysterious challenge. After the game, you and your group can debrief and gauge your strengths and weaknesses.

Since its opening last February, Mission Liberté has grown from 1 escape room to 6 and has established itself as a MUST DO Tremblant activity along the way. Visitors can try to escape from the Mafia, Pirates, Super Villains and explore deep Space or the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. Up for a nerve wrenching experience? You can even try disarming a bomb before it explodes at a crowded hockey match! Until May, Mission Liberté will also offer Virtual Reality trial sessions on the incredible Vive VR system. They will also be reinventing their first room, the popular Pirates adventure, in May, so be sure to come try the classic original version before it’s gone!

During school break season, customers should reserve their preferred game and time at missionliberte.com. If the weather is less than ideal, advance reservations are more important than ever.  The Mission Liberté team is planning a 7th escape room for May and a completely new activity attraction for summer 2017 – more info to follow.

We’re redefining group & business get-togethers!

group - groupes congrès

Our vision: an inspiring place where future projects are born. It is therefore in the presence of the great explorer Bernard Voyer that we had the pleasure of unveiling, on June 6th, the new identity of the Tremblant Convention Center. The first stop before countless encounters and the starting point of many experiences yet to be had, we present: Quartier Tremblant – Base Camp.

Blending sports, wellness, music, relaxation, exciting food and nightlife, Quartier Tremblant redefines group and business get-togethers in a natural country environment. The wide variety of unique areas and personalized programs aim to improve the efficiency of your meetings, all the while promoting the well-being of participants and their achievements. Brainstorming sessions in the pedestrian village, relaxing moments on the mountain, team-building tours with Ziptrek, project presentations at the beach … we offer solutions for all of your meeting objectives!

With gathering spaces and activities throughout the resort, we’ve thought of to break with the traditional look and feel of meetings: spaces for reflection, learning and sharing of skills through participation, consultants to support and coach, healthy meals, energizing treatments, cozy accommodations, ares that are conducive to creativity and interactions – all in a friendly and safe environment where everything is within walking distance.

Take your team to the top! It all starts at the Quartier Tremblant Base Camp. Whether you’re an event organizer, or simply have a large group to lead, let us guide you in planning your meeting. Visit our website to start preparing your stay: tremblant.ca/groups.

Why Is Tremblant the Best Destination for Corporate Events

More Accessible Than Ever With Air Canada

The log-cabin terminal’s small size ensures there are no delay upon arrival and the welcome is as friendly as the atmosphere. You have truly left the big city behind! Add to this the favourable exchange rate for our American visitors! Air Canada’s 4 direct flights per week mean less time spent getting there and more time there, enjoying the resort’s many available activities.

Taking care of business

Employee Recognition: A Critical Tool for Performance

You love your employees. You truly appreciate their continued efforts and admire their daily commitment. But how often do you actually show them how much you care, whether through words or simple gestures?

Some Statistics About Employee Recognition

140911AVTSMTcorporate-2986

Employee recognition is not a selfless act of kindness. Caring for your team is an important management strategy that quickly pays for itself, in every possible way. Studies state that productivity increases by 25% in companies that invest in recognition. These same businesses are also 22% more profitable, and their employee retention levels are 50% higher. Powerful data that proves we should start caring about employee recognition right away!

A Part of Everyday Businessgc

We have established that recognition is a critical part of doing business. But does recognition necessarily mean pay increases? Thankfully, it does not. On the contrary, recognition can be shown on a daily basis, in very simple ways.

For example, you can take the time to thank an employee who performed well on a project. You can spontaneously invite a team member for coffee, and ask him about his dreams and goals. You can be lenient with an employee asking to come in early so she can leave early. You can celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries, or invite your team for lunch. Every one of those little things counts when trying to bolster morale and loyalty.

Big Thank You’s
140409AVTSMT_apresski-8349

Obviously, big gestures are still important when trying to say Thank You. Team-building events and activities remain proven ways to tighten work relationships and reward your team members for their ongoing commitment.

Nothing beats a relaxing spa day paid for by the boss after an important meeting, dinner together or Happy Hour drinks to celebrate the end of a particularly grueling working session. Why not plan a ski day in the winter or a kayak adventure in the summer, the day after an important conference? Fresh air, especially when combined with laughter and physical activity, is an incredibly efficient way to disconnect from the office.

Not only will these out-of-the-box activities help you express your gratitude in more than words, but they are also wonderful ways of rewarding your team and giving them a true break from routine. In fact, it is often in those moments, removed from conventional frames, that the bonds between colleagues are strengthened and that the best ideas emerge!

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, feel the charm of a village with a European flair, with thirty or so specialty boutiques where you can find it all: sporting goods, prêt-à-porter apparel, jewelry, furs, artwork, toys and specialty foods. At the heart of the village you can also enjoy our free events and lively outdoor shows.

Poutine, Foie Gras and… Kale!

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

Lunch time! ??? #tremblant

Après Skis that Stretch Late into the Night

Come evening, the slope-side 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.

More Accessible than Ever

In under 65 minutes, travelers 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 ambiance within. With one terminal, big city airport delays are nonexistent. And the exchange rate is a huge bonus for our American neighbors!
